back to article Two years later, SK Hynix's £2.2bn EUV DRAM factory is ready to go

Two years after breaking ground, Korean memory giant SK Hynix has finished work on its ₩3.5 trillion (£2.2bn) DRAM factory, known as M16, located in the northwestern city of Incheon. When fully operational, the facility will fabricate chips using extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography technology, using a 1-alpha-nm (1αnm) …

    New tech is always good. Bring on the bigger, faster and cheaper memory :-)

    Any guesses how long it will be before some less advanced fab suddenly suffers a major fire or some significant outage - purely by accident * , but having the unfortunate effect of reducing supply and pushing prices up again

    * As seems to have happened multiple times in recent decades

    Hyinx fire

    Kioxia fire

    Samsung outage

    Micron outage

    Micron is already in volume production on this "1 alpha nm" node

    So they may be ahead of Samsung (where DRAM is concerned) but they are behind Micron.

    Can it be used for CPUs

    Or totally different layers etc?

      No. It's a DRAM process.
