Samsung is one of those few electronics brands that is expert and leader equally in various fields, including television, audio, smartphone, electronics components, etc. This company again shows its capability by developing the LPDDR5X DRAM. It’s industries first, based on 14-nm technology and sizes 16 Gigabyte. Back in 2018, we saw 8GB LPDDR5 DRAM for the first time for Samsung itself, and today we get industry’s first LPDDR5X DRAM.
The senior Vice President and Head of the DRAM Design Team at Samsung, SangJoon Hwang, said, “In recent years, hyperconnected market segments such as AI, augmented reality (AR) and the metaverse, which rely on extremely fast large-scale data processing, have been rapidly expanding,” He added, “Our LPDDR5X will broaden the use of high-performance, low-power memory beyond smartphones and bring new capabilities to AI-based edge applications like servers and even automobiles.”
As per Samsung, the new LPDDR5X DRAM is over 1.3 times faster than the LPDDR5. The processing speed can reach up to 8.5 gigabytes per second and consumes 20% less power too. Along with these, it can enable up to 64GB per memory package. Altogether, we need to get ready to experience more speedy data service applications such as metaverse, AI, and 5G.
