Samsung expects to have ramped up its share of the world's Rambus market to 53 per cent during 2000.

According to the Korean manufacturer, demand for Rambus is alive and well - largely thanks to its use in commercial releases of Intel Pentium IV chips, today's AsiaBizTech newswire reported.

The company, which previously said it had sold 30 million Rambus DRAM units in 2000 - valued at $900 million, was also confident of hanging on to the top position in the market in 2001. It expects sales to grow 117 per cent to $3.7 billion this year.

The total DRAM market is tipped to have reached $31 billion in 2000, and is expected to grow to $43 billion by 2002, according to figures from the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA). ®
