Samsung Electronics today expanded its list of DDR-II offerings with a number of new SKUs. The move can potentially help the new DRAM standard to become popular in various market segments, including powerful personal computers as well as Intel Xeon-based servers.

In addition to 256Mb and 512Mb DDR-II chips operating at 400MHz, 533MHz and 667MHz, Samsung Electronics now wants to offer 1Gb DDR-II devices. The new DRAMs will be made using 0.10 micron process in the firm’s 300mm fab in Hwasung, South Korea.

Additionally, Samsung rolled-out its 2GB registered DDR-II DIMMs and 1GB unbuffered DDR-II modules, both based on the firm’s 512Mb chips that are in mass production now. Such modules may be used in servers, workstations or powerful personal computers - these markets do not represent a huge market in terms of volume, but are pretty stable and profitable. With the introduction of new platform chipsets from Intel, it is likely that 2GB registered DDR-II modules from Samsung will be in demand from server and/or workstation companies.

All new products are currently sampling. Typically it takes memory companies from 1.5 to 3 months to get these kings of devices into mass production.

Samsung also said it would expand its DRAM business by expanding its product portfolio, addressing various lucrative markets, such as graphics, digital consumer and mobile applications.
