Samsung talks about 8 Gigabit LPDDR5 DRAM

Samsung

Samsung has developed 10-nanometer (nm) class 8-gigabit (Gb) LPDDR5 dynamic random access memory (DRAM). Interestingly, as far as we know, this is the first product that's using the LPDDR5 memory standard. It's pertinent to mention here that Samsung was the first to bring the 8GB LPDDR4 chip to mass production back in 2014 as well.

The new 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM is the latest addition to the company's premium DRAM lineup, which includes 10nm-class 16Gb GDDR6 DRAM and 16Gb DDR5 DRAM. The company's upcoming 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM chip flaunts a data rate of 6,400 Mb/s, which effectively is 1.5 times faster than current LPDDR4X offerings that top out at 4,266 Mb/s. Samsung has made the 10nm-class LPDDR5 DRAM available in two bandwidths - 6400Mbps at a 1.1 operating voltage, and 5500Mbps at 1.05 operating voltage. The 8Gb LPDDR5 also makes use of a highly advanced, speed-optimized circuit architecture that verifies and ensures the chip's ultra-high-speed performance. It has been configured to avoid overwriting cells with "0" values.

Samsung's LPDDR5 DRAM promises greater power savings thanks to a new "deep sleep mode". The low-power features allow the LPDDR5 RAM to deliver power consumption reductions of up to 30 percent, which will have a positive impact on maximizing performance and extending smartphone battery life.

More speed is surely a good thing in general, but it should be especially good at powering AI and machine learning, and it's also UHD-compatible.

Samsung, together with leading global chip vendors, has completed functional testing and validation of a prototype 8GB LPDDR5 DRAM package, which is comprised of eight 8Gb LPDDR5 chips.

After using LPDDR4X RAM chips in smartphones for quite a while now, Samsung is ready to push forward with the announcement of LPDDR5 RAM technology, which is intended for flagship phones to boost total bandwidth as well as to push the boundaries for 5G connectivity and AI-fueled mobile applications.
