Samsung announced it has developed the first 512Mbit DDR3 memory chips.
The prototype works at 1066Mbps and chips based on it will be available early next year, it said. Samsung claims DDR3 will become the standard for low power memory chips for PCs, whether they are notebooks, desktops or servers.
The DDR3 memory chips are built on the 80nm process and will work at 1.5V. They operate at twice the speed of DDR2.

Samsung expects DDR3 will conquer 65 percent of the market by 2009.
