Samsung has announced that its 30nm DDR3 DRAM has successfully completed customer evaluation and will enter mass production in the second half of the year.

Samsung's 30nm modules - the industry's first - are to be available in 2GB capacities and promise to lower power consumption by up to 30 per cent when compared to previous-generation 50nm parts.

Operating at 1.5V and 1.35V, the modules will soon be making their way into servers, desktops and notebooks, with Samsung expecting production cost-efficiency to double as a result of the refined 30nm process.

Soo-In Cho, President of Samsung Electronics' memory division, feeling bullish about his company's position said: "Our accelerated development of next generation 30nm-class DRAM should keep us in the most competitive position in the memory market."

"Our 30nm-class process technology will provide the most advanced low-power DDR3 available today and therein the most efficient DRAM solutions anywhere for the introduction of consumer electronics devices and server systems."

Highlighting the benefit to consumers, Samsung claims a 30nm 4GB "Green DRAM" module will consume only three watts per hour.

Samsung, now the world's largest technology company in terms of sales, is never short of a memory innovation or two. Back in 2009 the South Korean company showed off a single 32GB DDR3 memory module, and earlier this year it announced a series of 30nm NAND Flash memory cards for mobile devices.

'3 watts per hour'? someone wasn't paying attention in physics at school
Show me some cheap 4GB DDR3 Samsung. Or 8GB, even better.
32GB RAM module? very impressive (and, if it went on sale, I dare say equivalent to the cost of a small private jet) but as borandi says what we want to see is affordable 4GB modules.
