IT House April 1 news, according to Tom's Hardware news, Samsung and SK Hynix plan to stop production of DDR3 memory, but Micron and other professional DRAM manufacturers will maintain DDR3 production for the foreseeable future. But overall, it's time for DDR3 to leave.
The picture is from Samsung's official website
Samsung has reportedly informed its customers that it will continue to accept DDR3 memory orders until the end of 2022 and complete these orders by the end of 2023. 1Gb, 2Gb and 4Gb DDR3 chips are expected to be discontinued. SK Hynix will also phase out the production of the DDR3 SDRAM, but the exact timing is unclear.
In addition, DRAM manufacturers South Asia Technology, Winbond Electronics, Etron Technology and Elite Semiconductor Memory Technology (ESMT) do not intend to continue to offer DDR3 SDRAM to their customers.
IT House understands that mainstream PC and notebook platforms have long used DDR4/LPDDR4 and the latest DDR5 and LPDDR5 memory. However, some routers, switches and other products are still using DDR3 memory, and foreign media believe that after Samsung and SK Hynix stop producing DDR3 memory, the price of these IC products may rise.
