Samsung develops World's smallest 10-nm, 8-gigabit DRAM chips

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said in Seoul on Wednesday that it has developed the world’s smallest DRAM chip. The “second-generation” 10-nanometre, 8-gigabit DRAM chips with improved energy efficiency and data processing performance would be targeted at premium data-crunching electronics such as cloud computing centers, mobile devices and high-speed graphic cards.

Samsung plans to move its entire existing DRAM production capacity to 10-nano chips in 2018.

Samsung which is on path of a record operating profit in 2017, is already seeing a strong semiconductor business, and the production expansion move it believes will help it accommodate strong market demand.
