In a new development, Samsung has formally announced that the arrival of the 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM for mobiles. This is the very first 10nm course 8Gb LPDDR5 chip, successor to the 8Gb LPDDR4 chip that was launched back in 2014. This brand new 10nm class 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM will probably be useful to support the upcoming 5G networks, and AI-powered cellular applications too. This processor offers a data rate of 6400 megabits per second (Mbps) which is touted to be 1.5 times as fast as another DRAM chips used in present flagships of today.
The 6400Mbps data transfer speed permits the newest LPDDR5 to ship 51.2GB of data, or approximately 14 full-HD video documents (3.7GB each) within only a second. Samsung has made the 10nm-class LPDDR5 DRAM available in two bandwidths – 6400Mbps at a 1.1 operating voltage, and 5500Mbps in 1.05 operating voltage.
The new LPDDR5 DRAM offering also claims to deliver power consumption reductions of around 30 percent. When in’active mode’, the newest LPDDR5 DRAM will automatically lower its voltage compared with distinct application’s operating speed in order to conserve battery life. There’s also a’deep sleeping mode’ that cuts the energy usage to a bare minimum. Samsung notes which the deep sleep mode cuts the power use to approximately half the’idle mode’ of the current LPDDR4X DRAM.
“This development of 8Gb LPDDR5 signifies a significant step ahead for low-power mobile memory solutions. We’ll continue to enlarge our next-generation 10nm-class DRAM lineup as we accelerate the move toward greater use of memory across the international landscape,” Jinman Han, senior vice president of Memory Product Planning & Program Engineering at Samsung Electronics, said in a statement.
