Samsung Says its New LPDDR5X DRAM is the Fastest One Yet


Apart from its Galaxy line of smart devices, Samsung also specializes in the design and manufacturing of the tiny bits of hardware that end up inside our smartphones. As such, the South Korean electronics giant recently announced that it's working on an industry-first LPDDR5X DRAM memory, which will support speeds of up to 10.7 gigabits-per-second (Gbps).


The LPDDR5X will be built on 12 nanometer class process technology, which according to Samsung is currently the smallest chip size among existing LPDDRs in the market. It adds that this new breakthrough component is designed for leveraging on-device Ai applications and functions.


The company states that the LPDDR5X improves performance by more than 25% and capacity by more than 30% versus older generations, and also expands the single package capacity of mobile DRAM up to 32GB, making it ideal for on-device AI that usually requires high-performance, high-capacity and low-power memory.


The LPDDR5X also uses specialized power-saving technologies such as optimized power variation that can adjust power according to workload, and expanded low-power mode intervals which extend energy-saving periods. Samsung says that mass production of the 10.7Gbps LPDDR5X is scheduled to begin by the second half of 2024, following verification with mobile application processor and mobile device providers.
