Memory chip business aims to achieve a larger profit share

Kye-Hyun Kyung also mentioned that the goal for Samsung Electronics’ memory chip business this year is to achieve a larger profit share than its market share. According to data from the data provider TrendForce, Samsung Electronics held a market share of 45.5% in the DRAM chip market for tech devices in the fourth quarter of last year.

It’s reported that Samsung Electronics announced at the end of February that it has developed the industry’s largest capacity new high-bandwidth memory (HBM) chip to date. Samsung Electronics stated that the latest HBM3E 12H product stacks HBM3E DRAM chips up to 12 layers, making it the largest capacity HBM product so far. HBM3E 12H supports a maximum bandwidth of 1280GB/s around the clock, and the product capacity has also reached 36GB; compared to Samsung Electronics’ 8-layer stacked HBM3 8H, HBM3E 12H has significantly increased bandwidth and capacity by over 50%.

Samsung Electronics has begun providing samples of HBM3E 12H

Samsung Electronics has begun providing samples of HBM3E 12H to customers and plans to mass-produce the product in the first half of this year to ensure the company’s competitive advantage in the high-end storage chip sector amidst the rapidly increasing demand for artificial intelligence.

Kye-Hyun Kyung mentioned that the next-generation HBM product – HBM4 – may be released in 2025 with more customized designs. Samsung Electronics will leverage the advantage of integrating memory chip, chip foundry, and chip design businesses to meet customer demands.

In response to shareholder inquiries regarding recent setbacks Samsung Electronics encountered in the current HBM market compared to competitor SK Hynix, Kye-Hyun Kyung stated, “We have better prepared ourselves to prevent such occurrences in the future.”

Kye-Hyun Kyung also added, “Samsung Electronics looks forward to achieving tangible results soon with other memory products for artificial intelligence under development, such as Compute Express Link (CXL) and Processing in Memory (PIM).”
