Samsung kind of cracks the 10nm barrier with new 8GB DDR4 slabs

Samsung Electronics has announced it’s started baking RAM using a “10-nanometer (nm) class*” process and says the 8GB chips it’s emitting are the first in the world to be manufactured in this way.

Don’t start trying to figure out how 10nm compares to the width of a human hair or the head of a really small pin, because that asterisk up there is Samsung’s and leads to a disclaimer to the effect that “10nm-class denotes a process technology node somewhere between 10 and 19 nanometers, while 20nm-class means a process technology node somewhere between 20 and 29 nanometers.” Samsung’s not saying just how big, or small, this RAM is.
