SAMSUNG Electronics Announces Industry's First 2GB DDR DIMM Modules New Modules Power Industry Standard HP ProLiant Servers

Seoul, Korea -September 18, 2002: Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., the industry's leading supplier of advanced semiconductor memory technology, today announced that its high-capacity 2GB Double-Data-Rate SDRAM (DDR) Dual Inline Memory Modules (DIMM) are featured as main memory in HP ProLiant ML530, ML570 and DL580 servers. These high performance modules, the industry's highest capacity to date, provide HP customers with improved performance for memory intensive applications.

Samsung's 2GB DDR Registered DIMM modules are based on Samsung's leading-edge 512Mb component technology. Sixteen modules are used to create the 32Gigabytes of overall system memory capacity or a mirrored memory configuration of 16Gigabytes on the HP ProLiant DL580 server, therefore enabling the system to store and manage twice the amount of data as before.

Samsung's DDR DIMM, also available in 1GB configurations, enable end-users to run a host of new, intensely computational high-end graphics and data applications. Samsung, the industry's first and only company to mass-produce the 2GB and 1GB DDR DIMM, is the only semiconductor manufacturer with the memory technology and manufacturing capability to volume ship the industry's highest-density DIMM modules to HP.

"Customers immediately take full advantage of increased memory capacity," said Tom Quinn, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.'s vice president of marketing. "The integration of Samsung's advanced high-density DDR memory technology into HP ProLiant servers helps provide customers with the powerful performance they require and the highest levels of memory protection with mirrored memory capabilities."

"Today's business climate requires our customers to manage and process more data than ever before on fewer servers," said Paul Miller, director of marketing for Mainstream Servers, HP Industry Standard Servers. "The addition of Samsung's DIMM modules to HP ProLiant servers further enables us to provide our customers with enhanced levels of capability and performance and maximized user workload per server."
