Samsung will shift its focus from 64Mb DRAMs and expects RDRAM to make up 30 per cent of its DRAM production this year. It expects the world's RDRAM market to grow to more than 600 million units in 2002. this year the market is expected to soak up 300 million RDRAM units, with PCs accounting for 250 million chips, and games machines taking up the balance.
