Samsung announces industry’s first LPDDR5 RAM, ready for 5G

Samsung announces industry’s first LPDDR5 RAM, ready for 5G

"This development of 8Gb LPDDR5 represents a major step forward for low-power mobile memory solutions", said Jinman Han, a senior vice president at Samsung. 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.

Compared to devices that use LPDDR4X chips, the 8GB LPDDR5 DRAM module offers a data rate which is up to 1.5 times faster. This is 14 HD porn videos of 3.7 GB in size beamed to your smartphone in a second.

Due to take over from DDR4 and offering, as with each successive generation of the Double Data Rate (DDR) memory standard, improved performance, Samsung's new LPDDR5 product is aimed to low-power yet high-performance devices including smartphones, tablets, and embedded systems of the type you might find in self-driving vehicles. These speed improvements also come with a reduced amount of power consumption. The 8Gb LPDDR5 makes use of a highly advanced, speed-optimized circuit architecture that verifies and ensures the chip's ultra-high-speed performance.

According to Samsung, the new hardware has been engineered to lower its voltage "in accordance with the operating speed of the corresponding application processor, when in active mode".




And this new 8GB chip wouldn't just give Samsung's phones more RAM, it would also give them better RAM by the sound of things, as this is the industry's first 10-nanometer (nm) 8GB LPDDR5 DRAM.

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.

It is worth noting, however, that Samsung's 10nm Class 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM has not entered volume production. Samsung is yet to announce mass production of the memory chips.

DDR5 as a standard is still a little way off yet, and LPDDR5 is really a much bigger deal for mobile devices than their desktop counterparts.
