Elpida announced it plans to mass produce 30nm-class 2Gb DDR3 in May:
Japan-based memory chip vendor Elpida Memory has revealed plans to start mass producing 2Gb DDR3 SDRAM for PC applications in May 2011, using 30nm-class process technology. Manufacturing will take place at its Hiroshima, Japan plant as well as Taiwan-based Rexchip Electronics.

Elpida's Hiroshima plant will devote 20% of its production capacity to manufacturing the new 30nm chips in the second quarter of 2011, the company said. The ratio will rise to 30% in the third quarter as a result of Elpida's process transition to more cost-effective node technologies, the company added.
