SAMSUNG Exhibiting State-of-the-Art Memory and TFT at IDF

PALM SPRINGS, CA, - August 30, 1999 - Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. will be exhibiting its leading-edge memory and flat-panel display technologies at the Intel Developers` Forum here from August 30th through September 1st. Samsung has chosen to highlight its technical innovation and commitment to R & D by showcasing two complete working systems: one with 1-GB of SDRAM memory, made up of 36 pieces of 256Mbit SDRAM, the other with an 800MHz 128Mb RDRAMa memory module. Samsung was first to ramp up state-of-the-art 0.18 micron 256Mb SDRAM memory components and modules to mass production levels in March, 1999, leading the competition by over six months. With the same package footprint as 64M and 128M SDRAMs, the 256M SDRAM is well suited for use in servers, workstation and high-performance PCs.

Samsung is demonstrating its lead in the Rambus revolution with a full display of Rambus components and modules, including an 800MHz 128Mb RDRAM-based working system. Samsung was the first semiconductor manufacturer to begin Rambus mass production, the first with 64-, 128- and 256M-byte RIMM samples validated by Intel, and the first with 72-, 128- and 144Mbit Rambus DRAM components validated by Intel.

The third focus of the Samsung booth is TFT-LCD displays, where Samsung has earned its position as market and technology leader. Samsung`s leading-edge displays are noted for their large screen size, high resolution and wide viewing angle.

Products featured include: 15.0-inch XGA and 17-inch SXGA TFT-LCD monitors for engineering workstation and multimedia terminal use, and a 24-inch UXGA TFT-LCD monitor ideal for financial (stock market), engineering workstation and government/military applications.

`I am pleased to be here at IDF with such a strong technology and market leadership story, ` stated Y. W. Lee, president and CEO of Samsung Semiconductor Business, headlining the opening keynote with Intel officials on August 31st. `We at Samsung intend to consolidate our leadership position in memory and TFT-LCD products in 1999 and into the new millennium,` he continued.
