Samsung has announced that it has succeeded in developing the first 10nm class 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM that can be used in mobile devices and can transfer 14 Full HD videos at the moment.
South Korean technology giant Samsung has announced that it has developed the industry’s first 10nm-class 8-gigabit (Gb) LPDDR5 DRAM. The company, which produced the first 8Gb LPDDR4 DRAM in 2014, has been working on transitioning to the LPDDR5 standard, which will be used in 5G and artificial intelligence technologies since that day.
According to Samsung’s description, 8Gb LPDDR5 offers data rates up to 6400Mb / s. LPDDR4X RAMs on today’s flagship ships offer a data rate of 4266Mb / s. This shows that Samsung has increased the data rate by 1.5 times with a rough account. With the new LPDDR5 DRAM, 51.2GB of data or 14 Full HD video files can be transferred at the moment.
The 10nm class LPDDR5 DRAM will have two different bandwidths. The LPDDR5 DRAM, which will have a data rate of 6400Mb / s at 1.1 operating voltage, will have a data rate of 5500Mb / s at 1.05 operating voltage. According to Samsung, LPDDR5 DRAM will be a versatile memory for next generation smartphones and automotive systems.
The 10nm class LPDDR5 DRAM also offers significant improvements in terms of power savings. LPDDR5 will automatically reduce its voltage according to the processor’s needs in active mode. Thus unnecessary energy consumption will not be the case and the power will be saved. According to the company’s disclosure, LPDDR5 provides up to 30% power savings.
Samsung’s new LPDDR5 chip, the industry leader, has a bandwidth and power efficiency. In addition to full compatibility of memory with artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, offering UHD support for mobile devices around the world looks like Samsung will increase its market share in chip production.
