They need to be in the low 20's to compete with South Korea. 25 nm is not competitive enough.

At this rate, by 2013, they will need to be at 1x nm level already, and by 2015, sub-10 nm. Any new lithography technology incurs so many new costs (infrastructure, utilities, resist, inspection, etc.) that several nodes (like 28 nm to 9 nm) would have to be jumped to make up. On the other hand, the resolution improvement is not that significant (~one node) so the entire architecture will evolve along 3d lines to be compatible with existing litho.

Alternative memories like SONOS and ReRAM will become more cost effective even compared to current NAND. The floating gate is difficult to scale 3D. If something like ReRAM can eliminate the transistor and show high performance, that is the thing to watch for.

@Selinz, what about (spin-transfer torque random access memory ) STT_RAM, will it have any impact on DRAM ?

The fact that people are using flash for larger and larger devices will not help to stablize the DRAM industry.

Samsung also plans to release 20-nm node (or 20-nm class) DRAM later this year.
