Seoul, March 17, 2009

hynix Semiconductor Inc (“hynix”) today announced the validation of the HMT31GR7AUP4C, the world’s first MetaRAM based 8GB 2-rank DDR3 RDIMM, on Intel’s Nehalem CPU based Tylersburg-EP platform

When fully populated with 3 DIMMs per channel, the hynix 8GB RDIMM operates at 1066MHz speed. Competing industry standard modules exhibit performance degradation to 800MHz when operating under full load. The hynix 8GB DDR3 RDIMM enables a maximum capacity of 144GB operating at 1066MHz in a dual processor Tylersburg-EP platform, not possible with industry standard DIMMs.

hynix 8GB DDR3 RDIMM satisfies the market demand for high performance server memory and expects to secure a leading position in this market. The 16GB DDR3 RDIMM based on MetaRAM technology is slated for introduction in the third quarter of this year. The emerging LR-DIMM (Load Reduced-DIMM), the future standard for memory buffer, is expected to adopt performance objectives similar to MetaRAM.

Volume production of the 8GB DDR3 2-Rank RDIMM will begin from second quarter of this year. hynix also plans to receive Intel validation on 8GB DDR3 RDIMM operating at 1333MHz in the first half of this year.

Details on the hynix 8GB DDR3 RDIMM validation can be found on the Intel web site at,
