Short Take: Samsung samples 128-megabit DRAM chip

Samsung Electronics has produced commercial samples of 128-megabit synchronous DRAM chips and delivered them to major U.S. computer makers. The South Korean firm now plans mass production in the second quarter, Reuters reported. The new chip matches the size and power consumption of a 64-megabit DRAM and should help shrink the size of "information applicances," according to a company statement.
