Samsung Electronics has completed development of the world's first 576Mb RDRAM.

Mass production is set to begin in the second quarter of next year.

The 576Mb memory device operates at 1,066MHz and is targeted for use in high-performance PCs, workstations and servers. This DRAM processes data about eight times faster than the PC133 SDRAM and quadruple the DDR266 speed.

Samsung has said that though 'RDRAM chips normally have to be larger than other DRAMs because of the Rambus circuitry' it has 'reduced this competitive disadvantage to under one per cent by applying the 0.12-micron design rule.'

It also stated that it can apply the same design rule to its 256Mb and 128Mb RDRAMs to achieve productivity that are about 47 per cent higher per wafer, which will improve cost competitiveness.

The 576Mb RDRAMs can be built into a single module.

Samsung expects sales of its next-generation RDRAM chips to total $1 billion in 2002 and to hit $2.5 billion in 2003. ®
