According to computerbase, Samsung introduced its memory roadmap at the Samsung Foundry Forum 2022 event. As shown in the figure below, Samsung will enter the 1bnm process stage in the upcoming year, 2023. Furthermore, the memory chip capacity will reach 24Gb (3GB) – 32Gb (4GB). In addition, the native speed will be 6.4-7.2Gbps. In terms of video memory, a new generation of GDDR7 video memory will come out next year. Thus, the mid-term facelift of the new generation of AMD and Nvidia graphics cards may use GDDR7 video memory.
In addition, Samsung has also made some long-term visions. The company plans to launch the DDR6 memory in 2026 and achieve native 10Gbps speed in 2027. Samsung has also unveiled its flash memory roadmap, with V9 NAND chips expected in 2024.

Samsung pointed out at its previous Tech Day 2022 event that its ninth-generation V-NAND is under development. According to the company’s schedule, this chip will enter mass production in 2024. By 2030, the company envisions stacking more than 1,000 layers of NAND to better support future data-intensive technologies. It also announced that the world’s highest capacity 1Tb TLC V-NAND will be available to customers by the end of this year.
Samsung produced 1 trillion GB of memory in over 40 years
At the Samsung Tech Day 2022 event, Samsung Electronics President and head of memory business, Jung-bae Lee said that the company has produced a total of 1 trillion GB of memory in more than 40 years. The interesting part is that about half of the 1 trillion GB was produced in the last three years.
Samsung claims it has been a leader in DRAM and NAND for 30 and 20 years, respectively. Currently, Samsung is developing a fifth – generation 10nm-class (1b) DRAM. It is also developing the eighth- and ninth-generation vertical NAND (V-NAND). The company promises to continue to provide the most powerful combination of memory technologies for the next decade.
Finally, the company reiterates its overarching goal of enhancing customer value. It also claims to be pursuing a customer-oriented development philosophy to further expand its ecosystem partnerships.
