Samsung will be producing DDR2 RAM using 80nm tech , according to DarkVision:

"Samsung is the first to announce mass production of 80nm 1Gb DDR2 memory. While monolithic 1Gb DDR2 is available today, it is produced with more costly and less efficient 90 nm technology.

By applying 80nm process technology, Samsung will produce the world’s smallest DRAM package (11x11.5mm). This is 36% smaller than the 11x18mm package required for a DRAM chip utilizing 90nm and nearly as small as the 512Mb DRAM, which is half the size of a 90nm 1Gb chip.

Most 1Gb DRAM chips today are stacked in high-capacity DRAM modules for next-generation servers. These modules include the 4GB fully buffered Dual In-line Memory Module (DIMM) and the 2GB Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module (SODIMM)."
