Samsung’s new DRAM promises better performance and lower power consumption

Besides its smartphones, Samsung is also known to be one of the largest producers in the world of chips of different types: recently the company announced that it has developed the first LPDDR5X type DRAM on the market. This is a 16 GB (Giga bit) DRAM created with a 14nm production process and Low Power Double Data Rate 5X type: it is designed for high speed data service applications including 5G, artificial intelligence and machine learning. Designed for mobile use, this memory is particularly energy efficient without sacrificing performance.

Samsung’s LPDDR5X DRAM delivers data processing speeds of up to 8.5 gigabits per second (over 1.3 times faster than the 6.4 Gbps of LPDDR5). Thanks to the 14nm manufacturing process, it uses about 20% less power than LPDDR5 memory. In addition, the 16GB LPDDR5X chip will allow up to 64GB per memory packet, meeting the growing demand for high capacity mobile DRAM around the world.
