LPDDR5X has the fastest operating speed among Samsung’s existing mobile DRAMs at up to 8.5 Gbps, about 1.3 times faster than its predecessor LPDDR5, which operates at 6.4 Gbps. The product is based on the industry’s advanced 14nm process and offers greater competitiveness in terms of capacity and efficiency.
Compared to LPDDR5, LPDDR5X can reduce power consumption by about 20%. In terms of capacity, in response to market demand for higher-capacity mobile DRAM in the 5G era, Samsung has developed a single-chip capacity of 16GB and expanded the total capacity of the mobile DRAM package to 64GB.
Samsung announces the industry’s first LPDDR5X memory chips
Samsung’s new memory is intended for smartphones, as well as artificial intelligence solutions. According to the company, these DRAMs are manufactured in 14nm and have a capacity of 16Gb per chip and double the data rate. 5G high-speed solutions, artificial intelligence, and the Metaverse will benefit from this memory.
Samsung’s new LPDDR5X memories are next-generation DRAM solutions. They offer ideal speed, capacity, and power savings for 5G applications.
Note that Samsung introduced 8Gb LPDDR5 memory to the industry in 2018. The company is now working to more aggressively target the smartphone market. The company is leading the industry with its first 16Gb LPDDR5X memory.
Samsung says the LPDDR5X memory will offer data speeds of up to 8.5 Gbps. That’s up to 1.3 times faster than LPDDR5, which offers 6.4 Gbps. Thanks to the 14nm process, a 20 percent improvement in power consumption over LPDDR5 is achieved.
The 16 Gb LPDDR5X chips enable up to 64 GB per memory package. This addresses the growing needs of the smartphone DRAM market. An increasingly demanding market.
By the end of the year, Samsung will start working with global chipset manufacturers. The idea is to develop a more viable augmentation framework for digital reality.
Since the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S21 series use LPDDR5 chips, it would not be surprising to see LPDDR5X chips in the upcoming Galaxy S22 series. Since Apple used the previous generation LPDDR4X chips in the iPhone 13 series, we don’t think it will source these LPDDR5X chips from Samsung, but we could see them using LPDDR5 chips.
Samsung is working to expand its range of DRAM products for smartphones. To this end, they are working to continuously improve performance and power efficiency. It also wants to expand its leadership position in a highly competitive market.
Samsung plans to expand its advanced mobile DRAM product lineup by continuously improving performance and energy efficiency. At the same time, Samsung will further strengthen its market position by building a reliable mass production system to meet the demand for high-end DRAMs.
