1Gb DDR2 to become mainstream spec in 2008

Posted on Sunday, November 25 2007 @ 16:30:07 CET by

DigiTimes reports 1Gb DDR2 memory chips will become the mainstream specification in the second quarter of 2008 as prices are expected to stay below $2.
Although recent 512Mb DDR2 eTT chip pricing could rise again, low market demand and the fast dropping rate of 1Gb DDR2 eTT chip prices mean the 512Mb DDR2 eTT chip prices might drop down to US$0.9, according to DRAMeXchange.

With the price of one 1Gb DDR2 eTT chip almost equal to two 512Mb eTT chips plus the fact that a 1GB DDR2 memory module only requires a single side of 1Gb DDR2 eTT chips, saving manufacturing time and costs, it could secure the trend of 1Gb DDR2 chips replacing 512Mb ones.

As a result DRAM makers are focusing 70nm production on 1Gb DDR2 chips in order to prepare for a market where 1Gb DDR2 chips are the mainstream specification, added the sources.
