Samsung Now Mass-Producing Industry's First 2nd-Generation, 10nm-Class DRAM

Samsung makes the world’s smallest DRAM

They've finished with the development and testing of their 2nd generation 10nm 8-gigabit DDR4 memory chip. The chips are 15 percent more energy efficient and run 10 percent faster than the last generation, launched just 20 months ago. According to the company, it features the highest performance and energy efficiency and smallest dimensions for an 8Gb DRAM chip.

The company also touts an approximate 30 percent productivity gain over its previous chip. While the first-generation 10 nm 8 Gb DDR4 memory operates at 3,200 Mbps per pin, its successor provides a speed of 3,600 Mbps per pin.

The advancements in Samsung Electronics' DRAM production also allows the company to accelerate the introduction of its next generation chips as well.

The global leader in computer chips, televisions and smartphones said it would shift most of its existing DRAM production capacity to 10-nano chips in 2018.

"By developing innovative technologies in DRAM circuit design and process, we have broken through what has been a major barrier for DRAM scalability", Gyoyoung Jin, President of Samsung's Memory Business, said in a statement.

Samsung has used a newly devised high-sensitivity cell data sensing system which it says "enables a more accurate determination of the data stored in each cell, which leads to a significant increase in the level of circuit integration and manufacturing productivity". Also, Samsung is focusing on other memory technologies like DDR5, LPDDR5, GDDR6, and HBM3 which find their use in a number of mobile devices, high-end GPUs, HPC systems, etc.

The company hasn't relied on a new process to make the RAM smaller.

Samsung has said that its 8GB 2nd-generation 10-Nanometer Class DRAM is created to be used in a wide range of next generation computers.
