One key to getting computers that are faster and use less power is to move to ever smaller build processes for CPUs and memory components. The smaller the build process the less heat is produced and the cheaper the components are to build.

Samsung has announced what it claims to be the industry's first 30nm DDR3 DRAM. The new chips are being made in 2Gb densities and are available for 1.35V and 1.5V desktops, notebooks, and servers. The new 30nm process allows Samsung to increase productivity by 60% compared to 40nm class DRAM.

The DRAM produced with the new process also needs less power with reduced consumption of up to 30% compared to 50nm class DRAM. Samsung is developing 4GB modules using the new DRAM and mass production is set for H2 2010.
