Samsung Electronics announced it will add 1Gbit DDR2 chips, 2GB (512MbitÃ—32) DDR2 registered-DIMM and 1GB (512MbitÃ—16) DDR2 unbuffered-DIMM to its product lines, according to a company press statement on January 28. With the new products, Samsung's DDR2 solutions now include 1Gbit, 512Mbit and 256Mbit DDR2 chips operating at 400, 533 or 677MHz and 19 DDR2-based module combinations. The three new products are in the sampling stage while the existing ones have been in mass production.
Samsung also said it is transferring 0.10-micron 1Gbit DDR2 production to its 12-inch Fab 12 in Hwasung-kun, South Korea. Market research firm Gartner Dataquest projects global DDR2 sales will account for 66% of total DRAM sales by 2006, up from approximately 10% this year
