• Samsung 18 nm DRAM Analysis

  • In April 2017, Samsung became the world’s first manufacturer to mass produce 10 nm-class DRAM. In June 2017, TechInsights published a blog based on our first learnings on this innovation that detailed a memory density increase of 32.8% when comparing 8Gb DRAM 18 nm and 20 nm die.
