Samsung Electronics, the world's biggest maker of memory chips, said Wednesday that it has mass-produced the second-generation, 10-nanometer class dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips.

The South Korean company said in a statement that it started mass-producing 8-gigabit DDR4 DRAM chips using the 10-nanometer class technology, the world's first in the industry.

The second-generation chips feature about 30 percent productivity gain over the first-generation 10-nanometer 8-gigabit DDR4 chips that Samsung adopted in February 2016.

The statement said the new chips are 10 percent faster and consume 15 percent less power than the first-generation products.

"Through a rapid ramp-up of the 2nd-generation 10nm-class DRAM, we will expand our overall 10 nanometer-class DRAM production more aggressively, in order to accommodate strong market demand and continue to strengthen our business competitiveness," said Gyoyoung Jin, president of Samsung's memory business.
