Samsung is cutting Rambus RDRAM production as demand for the memory technology slumps - a trend mirrored in South Korea's export statistics which show a fall in the number of RDRAM chips leaving the country.

So claims Korea's Chosun newspaper, at any rate. It doesn't provide much in the way of hard figures. The paper does cite local Meritz Securities analyst Chio Soek-Po, who notes that global demand for RDRAM is falling.

"The global demand for RAMBUS RDRAMs is deteriorating as PCs and game devices using RAMBUS DRAMS are switching to other types of DRAMs," he claims.

Exhibit A is Samsung, apparently, which the paper says is believed to be slimming its Rambus production ramp from a 30 per cent increase to 20 per cent, accompanied by a recently accelerated 20 per cent increase in DDR SDRAM output. ®
