Do you still have DDR3 memory sticks at home?
According to DT, Samsung has notified customers,For DDR3 memory chips, the final order time is until the end of 2022, and the remaining orders are promised to be completed within 2023.
This means that starting in 2024, Samsung will discontinue the DDR3 SDRAM memory particles.
As for peer SK Hynix, it is also said to be seeking to gradually shut down the production of DDR3 memory chips, but it has not yet disclosed a detailed plan.
However, Micron seems to be still interested in DDR3 memory, although in the consumer field, it has long been out of the mainstream, replaced by DDR4 or even DDR5, but DDR3 still plays a non-negligible role in the industrial field, such as routers around us, cheap tablets /laptops, etc.
In addition, Nanyake, Winbond, Lijing, Yuchuang, etc. still have considerable DDR3 memory production capacity, and the withdrawal of Samsung and SK Hynix is not expected to cause greater fluctuations in the market in the short term.
Of course, the tide of the times is rolling forward, and it is foreseeable that DDR3 will completely withdraw from the stage of history.
