In a new development, Samsung has formally declared that the arrival of the 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM for phones. This is the first 10nm course 8Gb LPDDR5 chip, successor to the 8Gb LPDDR4 chip which was launched back in 2014. This new 10nm class 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM will be useful to support the approaching 5G networks, and AI-powered cellular programs as well. This processor supplies a data rate of 6400 megabits per second (Mbps) which is touted to be 1.5 times as quickly as the other DRAM chips used in present flagships of now.
The 6400Mbps data transfer rate allows the new LPDDR5 to ship 51.2GB of data, or about 14 full-HD video files (3.7GB each) in just 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 promises to provide electricity consumption reductions of around 30 percent. When in’active mode’, the new LPDDR5 DRAM will automatically lower its voltage in accordance with distinct program’s operating speed so as to conserve battery life. There is also a’deep sleep mode’ that blows off the power use to a bare minimum. Samsung notes which the deep sleep mode cuts the energy usage to about half the’idle manner’ of the current LPDDR4X DRAM.
“This growth of 8Gb LPDDR5 signifies a significant step forward for low-power mobile memory solutions. We’ll continue to expand our next-generation 10nm-class DRAM lineup as we accelerate the move toward greater utilization of premium memory across the international landscape,” Jinman Han, senior vice president of Memory Product Planning & Program Engineering at Samsung Electronics, said in a statement.
