Samsung reveals highest-density DRAM chip to date

In the wake of Samsung's Exynos quad-core processors, now powering their increasingly successful line of Galaxy smartphones, the semiconductor leader has started production of the world's highest-density manufactured memory chip. Mass production began last month on "the industry's first four gigabit (Gb), low power double-data-rate 2 (LPDDR2) memory using 20 nanometer (nm) class technology." Being able to store the same amount of data on a smaller chip architecture mean significant advantages in size, weight, and power consumption -- all important factors in the increasingly competitive mobile computing field. This breakthrough should allow Samsung to hold it's position high on the pecking order for memory manufacturers, as well as securing its spot amongst the most successful semiconductor companies in the world.
