Samsung to ship 60nm DDR2 chips by year's end
Samsung claims that the new technology will offer a 20% speed increase compared to 80nm DDR2 memory and significantly higher capacities. The new chips will be aimed at the high end memory market.

Chip capacity was doubled, from 1Gb to 2Gb, and Samsung claims that this greatly will improve power efficiency. For example, an 8GB module currently uses 72 1Gb chips, but with the new chips, an 8 GB module would use just 36, and consume around 30 percent less power. mid=36

Will it mean more capacity and even lower price?

Rutar 15th September 2007 22:41

certainly it is eating away the power advantage of DDR3

Means the ability to offer lower prices... might be a little awhile before the savings appears consumer-side if memory makers have any say in it.
