Samsung releases 30nm DDR3

Written by Nick Farell

DRAM ready for summer
Samsung announced the introduction of 30-nm DDR3 DRAM modules for PC upgrades.

This new generation of faster, more energy efficient DRAM modules will be available through consumer retail channels this summer. Reid Sullivan, senior vice president of mobile entertainment marketing said his outfit's 30nm-class process technology was an outstanding combination of advanced low-power DDR3 technology, with blazing speed up to 1,600Mbps.

Samsung’s new DDR3 DRAM modules are available in 2 and 4 gigabyte capacities, in UDIMM configurations for desktop PCs, and small outline DIMM (SODIMM) configurations for notebook PCs. They are backwards compatible with systems designed for previous DDR3 and DDR2 memory and available in single or dual-pack quantities.

He claimed that the DRAM used two-thirds less energy than those manufactured with the industry-standard 60nm-class technology. This improvement in energy efficiency does not come at the expense of performance. The new modules transfer data at up to 1,600 Mbps, 20 percent faster than Samsung’s current 40nm-class generation of DDR3 DRAM.

Samsung’s new 30nm-class DDR3 DRAM modules will be available in the US Prices for single pack modules will range from less than $30 to less than $55; dual pack modules will range from less than $55 to less than $110.

Do they suffer from the error correction problems that accompany the new smaller SSDs?

@loadwick - this is DRAM for DIMMs, ie RAM, not flash for persistent storage. ;-)

Small play on words...now find how much more energy efficient 40nm is to 60nm and factor that in.

Yes i realise that but RAM still suffers from errors hence why you can buy ECC RAM. I was asking if this error rate is increased as they shrink the manufacturing process, as the case is with NAND chips.

From the article: "They are backwards compatible with systems designed for previous DDR3 and DDR2 memory and available in single or dual-pack quantities."

Wait what? I haven't heard this before and I hate to sound like a newb. Does this mean i could throw these things in my DDR2 Mobo and it would work?

this is really a weird read. NAND and memory are usually the first products at a die size. For example, intel is already at 20nm on ssds — that's not production, that's what's on the shelves at stores around the world already. Intel is not the leading manufacturer for ram, taiwan (which isnt samsung but) companies are a full node ahead of intel. They are probably struggling with 8nm shrink in sampling right now.
further, 1.6Gbps data rate is awesomely slow for ram. USB is now faster than this.
