ICHEON, Korea — April 2nd, 2008

hynix Semiconductor Inc. (“hynix” or “the Company”) today announced the validation per Intel procedures and specifications of the 512MB(HMT164S6AFP6C-G7N0),1GB(HMT112S6AFP6C-G7N0) and 2GB (HMT125 S6AFP8C-G7N0) DDR3, 1066Mbps SO-DIMMs all of which are assembled with 66nm 1Gb DDR3 SDRAM components. hynix’s 66nm 1Gb DDR3 DRAM component was validated in October of last year.

hynix’s validated DDR3 SODIMMs, 512Megabyte, 1Gigabyte and 2Gigabyte, consist of 1Gigabit DDR3 SDRAM component manufactured on the Company’s leading edge 66nm process technology. These devices boast operating speed of 1066Mbps at 1.5V power supply. This speed is offered in latency combinations of 7-7-7 to suit the needs from a wide range of Mobile PCs.

In addition to its high speed characteristics, DDR3 features reduced current consumption by almost 25%, compared to the present generation DDR2. hynix’s ‘three-dimensional transistor’ architecture minimizes current leakage to further reduce overall current consumption and ensure data integrity.

Mooly Eden of Intel Mobile Platforms Group, Vice President & General Manager, explained “DDR3 is good for mobile computing because it will allow system designers to use upcoming Intel?? Centrino™ processor technology mobile platforms to deliver even higher computational and graphics performance with lower power. I am pleased with the DRAM industry’s readiness for this technology in 2008.”

DDR3 is the next generation DRAM interface which is to succeed the current mainstream DDR2 products. Demand for DDR3 is expected to emerge towards the end of the year. According to market research firm iSuppli, DDR3 will account for 25% of total DRAM shipments by the end of 2008 and dominate the market by 2010.

Mass production of the DDR3 SO-DIMM, will begin in the second quarter of this year.
