Samsung Electronics has developed the world's smallest DRAM chip. As per a Reuters report, 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.


The 'second-generation' 10-nanometre class, 8-gigabit DRAM chips with improved energy efficiency and data processing performance would be geared toward premium data-crunching electronics such as cloud computing centers, mobile devices, and high-speed graphics cards, Samsung said.

Gyoyoung Jin, president of Memory Business at Samsung Electronics said, "This “aggressive” production expansion would “accommodate strong market demand.”

The new chips are able to deliver a 30 percent ‘productivity gain’ over Samsung's 1st-generation and the new 8GB DDR4 can operate at 3,600 Mbps per pin, compared to 3,200 Mbps of the company’s 1x-nm 8GB DDR4.
