Samsung ramps 256M SDRAMs in volume

Price will drop to just over $100/part in '99

The Korean Herald is reporting that Samsung has started to ship its 256MB SDRAM part in volume. The paper says that the 256MB chip will replace 64MB chips next year. While Samsung said that initial prices are expected to be just above $200/part, that will drop as volume increases, with chips costing just over $100 at some point this year. The Herald quotes a Samsung executive as claiming it is six months ahead of the competition. ®
