In one of the major development in the world of laptops and tablets, Samsung announced that it would develop low-power double-data-rate 2 (LPDDR2) memory using 20 nanometer class technology. In simple language it this manufacturing process will allow to pack 20 percent thinner memory chips into a 2-gigabyte package. This will allow to upgrade the memory by 2GB in their devices instead of the 1GB limit that is present today.
It also means the use of more DRAM for power memory hungry games and Web sites.
According to the South Korean electronics giant there will be a huge demand for more energy efficient and higher capacity memory products that will give long battery life and faster processing speed. It is seen that large screen tablets and Smartphones with quad core CPUs are making rapid strides in the market.
The latter half of the year will see the majority of production. Recently, Samsung had suffered a huge lost about $10 billion in market value due to Apple, as it was placing large orders with rival memory chipmaker Elpida.
