[Korea.net News, Science / Tech, February 25 2008] Hynix develops cost-efficient memory module

Hynix Semiconductor Co., the world’s No. 2 memory chip maker, said Monday (Feb 25) it has developed a new type of cost-efficient memory module for high-powered servers.

The Korean company’s new 8 gigabyte DDR2 memory module, developed jointly with U.S. chipmaker MetaRAM Inc., allows a memory controller to recognize installed DRAMs to be equipped with a higher capacity, the company said in a statement.

The module allows a single 1 gigabyte DRAM to provide capacities similar to those of a 2-gigabyte DRAM, providing cost efficiency for users, according to the company.

"The product’s high capacity is expected to pave the way for new server applications," said Kim Ji-beom, director at Hynix’s marketing division.
