Samsung has announced the production of the first 4GB DDR3 chip. The new chip is based off of a 50nm process and allows for up to 32GB modules if manufactured in a "Dual-Die" package.
Samsung was the first to begin development on a 50nm 2GB DDR3 chip back in September and now offer the broadest line of 50nm DDR3 DRAM (4GB, 2GB, 1GB).
The new DDR3 chips come at a time when individuals and corporations are demanding more system memory at a lower power cost.
