Samsung cranks out PlayStation 3 memory
Samsung Electronics has produced samples of 512 megabits XDR DRAM on the 90-nanometer process. XDR DRAM is high-speed memory based on designs from Rambus. XDR memory transmits data at up to 9.6 gigabytes per second, about 12 times faster than today's standard computer memory.
Sony will stock the PlayStation 3 with XDR (formerly called Yellowstone) from Samsung, Sony has said. The current PlayStation 2 runs on RDRAM, another type of Rambus memory.
