    Hynix Semiconductor, Inc. has announced the Intel validation of 2Gb (Gigabit) DDR3 DRAM using 40nm class process technology.

    Hynix’s newly validated products are 2Gb DDR3 SDRAM component, 4GB (Gigabyte) DDR3 SODIMM (Small Outline Dual In-line Memory Module) and 2GB DDR3 UDIMM (Un-buffered Dual In-line Memory Module) at the operating speed of 1333MHz with 1.5V power supply.

    The products can offer the maximum data transfer speed of 1867MHz with 16-bit I/O and 3.7GB/s (Gigabytes per second) bandwidth. The productivity of Hynix’s 40nm class 2Gb DDR3 is increased by more than 60% over 50nm class process technology.

    In addition, Hynix responds to the industry demand for ‘Green’ or ‘Eco-friendly’ products with this new 40nm class 2Gb DDR3 that reduces power consumption by 40% over the preceding products using 50nm class. This is about twice as much as the industry average of reduction in terms of power consumption.

    “The current mainstream density has been rapidly transferring from 1Gb to 2Gb for the higher performance servers market. We expect to secure the industry’s best features of both 1Gb and 2Gb DDR3 products”, said Mr. J.B. Kim, Chief Marketing Officer of Hynix.

    Hynix has begun mass producing this new 2Gb DDR3 using 40nm class. The Company also expects that the validation of RDIMM (Registered Dual In-line Memory Module) will be also completed within this year.

    I just wonder..

    ..how high it can be overclocked. :D

    But probably never find out, cause they are not sold at all? I never saw Hynix ram.. (only GGDRs on graphic cards). Or SODIMMs in notebooks..

    Very confusing announcement by Hynix.

    UDIMM just means unbuffered dual in line memory. And regular SDRAM and SODIMM are therefore UDIMM by definition. Perhaps they mean they also have a server/workstation ECC UDIMM? (Any they dont get have a qualitfied ECC RDIMM). But the picture doesnt show any parity chip (unless this is done on the reverse of the DIMM) so perhaps they are talking about something different.

    And doesnt 40nm have 56% higher areal density than 50nm? Given the inefficiencies at the "edges" and for cutting a silicon die into many chips, then "productivity" must therefore be <56% and not greater than 60%.

    Quite confusing. Or perhaps the announcement is not for a technical audience... just "shareholder news"... ie. approximately right and the pictures approximately look like something fancy.

    Yeah, wow.. I think you over-analyzed it. Although.. for anyone who doesn't know this.. it's an interesting read.

    i just like whenever they shrink the ram down, cause lower voltages = cooler ram = better for everyone


    better battery life in laptops, lower heat/better OCing in desktops.

    is this the first 2GB DDR3 kit?
    cos i haven't seen one before

    2Gb does not mean 2GB


    16x2Gb modules = 4GB sticks
     
    El_Mayo says thanks.

    ohhhhh i see >_<
    Gigabit is like the transfer speed yeah?
