Samsung’s New 30nm DDR3 DRAM

Samsung has just introduced 30 nanometer class 1 synchronous dynamic dynamic random access memory (DRAM) modules designed to upgrade your PC. This new generation of faster and more energy-efficient DRAM modules will be available this summer in the mass retail market.

According to Reid Sullivan, Senior Vice President of Mobile Entertainment Marketing at Samsung Electronics America, “Replacing your DRAM can be one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to improve your PC’s performance, and these new products offer the most energy-efficient solution currently available to consumers. Samsung is committed to providing consumers with better computing performance and our 30 nm class processing technology offers an exceptional combination of energy-efficient DDR3 technology, with a breathtaking speed of up to 1,600 megabytes per second.”

You can get this new Samsung DRAM in a 2GB or 4GB model and both are available in very low profile configurations without dual online memory module buffer for desktop PCs and small outline DIMM configurations for notebooks. They are also backwards compatible with systems designed for previous DDR3 and DDR2 memories and can be purchased in single or double quantities.

These USB sticks are also more energy efficient, consuming up to two-thirds less energy than those manufactured with industry standard 60nm technology. The great thing is that this improvement in energy efficiency is not at the expense of performance. The new modules transfer data at up to 1,600 Mbps, 20% faster than Samsung’s current generation of 40 nm class DDR3 DRAMs.

The new 30 nm class DDR3 DRAM modules will be available at Samsung this summer with single-pack modules from under $30 to under $55 and double-pack modules from under $55 to under $110.
