Bit growth is now expected to increase to as much as 90 percent for
its financial year, up from 70 percent bit growth previously projected
by the company. Productivity improvements above its initial
expectations were also cited for the growth in bit production.
Elpida also said that it expects to begin 50nm DRAM production in the first quarter of 2009 with its 65nm technology seeing major yield improvements now that it is in volume production.
Elpida is also seeing strong market share growth as it ramps production at Rexchip.
