    Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, announced today that it is the first manufacturer in the industry to begin mass producing DDR2 DRAM - 512 Megabit (Mb) - on an 80 nanometer (nm) scale. With 80-nm process technology, Samsung is able to increase its production efficiency by 50 percent over the previous 90-nm process. The production economies of scale afforded by moving to 80-nm process technology will better enable the company to meet increasing demand for DDR2. According to Gartner Dataquest, a semiconductor industry research organization, DDR2 memory will comprise over 50 percent of the entire DRAM market in 2006.
