[Korea.net News, Science / Tech, November 25 2007] Hynix plans to produce new DRAM chips in 2nd half of next year

Hynix said it has completed developing 1-gigabit double data rate (DDR) 2 DRAM chips using 54-nano technology, and that the new chips have been validated by global computer central processing unit (CPU) giant Intel Corp. The approval means that the chips can properly operate with CPU chips manufactured by Intel.Hynix added that it plans to mass-produce the new chips, which have faster data-processing speed and consume less power than ordinary DRAMs, starting in the second half of 2008. The chips are used mostly in personal computers.Hynix became the second chipmaker to gain approval from Intel on 1-gigabit DRAMs using 50-nano level technology after South Korea’s tech bellwether Samsung Electronics Co.
