Samsung Electronics Unveils Industry’s Highest-Capacity 12nm-Class 32Gb DDR5 DRAM, Ideal for the AI Era
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced that it has developed the industry's first and highest-capacity 32-gigabit (Gb) DDR5 DRAM1 using 12 nanometer (nm)-class process technology. This achievement comes after Samsung began mass production of its 12nm-class 16Gb DDR5 DRAM in May 2023. It solidifies Samsung's leadership in next-generation DRAM technology and signals the next chapter of high-capacity memory.

"With our 12nm-class 32Gb DRAM, we have secured a solution that will enable DRAM modules of up to 1-terabyte (TB), allowing us to be ideally positioned to serve the growing need for high-capacity DRAM in the era of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and big data,” said SangJoon Hwang, Executive Vice President of DRAM Product & Technology at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to develop DRAM solutions through differentiated process and design technologies to break the boundaries of memory technology."
A 500,000 Fold Increase in DRAM Capacity Since 1983
Having developed its first 64-kilobit (Kb) DRAM in 1983, Samsung has now succeeded in enhancing its DRAM capacity by a factor of 500,000 over the last 40 years.
Samsung’s newest memory product, developed using cutting-edge processes and technologies to increase integration density and design optimization, boasts the industry’s highest capacity for a single DRAM chip and offers double the capacity of 16Gb DDR5 DRAM in the same package size.
Previously, DDR5 128GB DRAM modules manufactured using 16Gb DRAM required the Through Silicon Via (TSV) process. However, by using Samsung's 32Gb DRAM, the 128GB module can now be produced without using the TSV process, while reducing power consumption by approximately 10% compared to 128GB modules with 16Gb DRAM. This technological breakthrough makes the product the optimal solution for enterprises that emphasize power efficiency, such as data centers.
With its 12nm-class 32Gb DDR5 DRAM as a foundation, Samsung plans to continue expanding its lineup of high-capacity DRAM to meet the current and future demands of the computing and IT industry. Samsung will reaffirm its leadership in the next-generation DRAM market by supplying the 12-nm-class 32Gb DRAM to data centers as well as to customers that require applications like AI and next-generation computing. The product will also play an important role in Samsung’s continued collaboration with other key industry players.
Mass production of the new 12nm-class 32Gb DDR5 DRAM is scheduled to begin by the end of this year.

Takeda Provides Update on EXKIVITY® (mobocertinib)2.10.2023 23:30:00 EEST | Press release
Takeda (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) today announced that, following discussions with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it will be working with the FDA towards a voluntary withdrawal of EXKIVITY ® (mobocertinib) in the U.S. for adult patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) Exon20 insertion mutation-positive (insertion+) locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose disease has progressed on or after platinum-based chemotherapy. Takeda intends to similarly initiate voluntary withdrawal globally where EXKIVITY is approved and is working with regulators in other countries where it is currently available on next steps. This decision was based on the outcome of the Phase 3 EXCLAIM-2 confirmatory trial, which did not meet its primary endpoint and thus did not fulfill the confirmatory data requirements of the Accelerated Approval granted by the U.S. FDA nor the conditional marketing approvals granted in other countries. The EXCLAIM-2 trial was a Phase
Galderma announces progress with RelabotulinumtoxinA regulatory submissions2.10.2023 23:27:00 EEST | Press release
Galderma, the emerging pure-play dermatology category leader, announced today updates related to the regulatory progress of its pending Biologics License Application (“BLA”) for RelabotulinumtoxinA (QM-1114) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). The FDA has issued a Complete Response Letter (“CRL”) to Galderma related to its BLA for RelabotulinumtoxinA for the treatment of moderate-to-severe glabellar lines (frown lines) associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity in adult patients as well as moderate-to-severe lateral canthal lines (crow’s feet) associated with orbicularis oculi muscle activity in adult patients. The CRL points out certain deficiencies isolated to items related to Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls (“CMC”) processes. All other aspects of the BLA, including safety and efficacy related parts, did not solicit deficiencies to be addressed. Galderma has already identified changes to the manufacturing process to address feedback. It will also
Visa Launches $100 million Generative AI Ventures Initiative2.10.2023 23:05:00 EEST | Press release
Visa (NYSE: V), a global leader in payments, today announced a new $100 million generative AI ventures initiative to invest in the next generation of companies focused on developing generative AI technologies and applications that will impact the future of commerce and payments.
