Samsung has made official of its first 8GB RAM that uses 16-gagabit (Gb) LPDDR4 mobile DRAM, which is based on 10-nanometer class process technology. Specifically, RAMs like these will be very useful for smart devices that comes with dual cameras, 4K UHD recording and VR features. More details on Samsung’s 8GB LPDDR4 RAM is here.
The company was mass producing 6GB / 12-Gigabit LPDDR4 mobile DRAM based on 20-nanometer process at the end of 2015, and today it has introduced its industry made 8GB RAM, that’s expected to go inside the next-generation Galaxy S8 for instance, flagship smartphones.
Samsung’s new 8GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM Features
- Fabricated on 10-nanometer (nm) class process technology
- 4 x 16 gigabit (Gb) LPDDR4 memory chips
- Data transfer rate of 4,266 megabits per second (Mbps) per pin, 30% faster than 20nm-based 8Gb LPDDR4
- Twice as fast as DDR4 DRAM for PCs, while consuming 20% less energy
- Dimensions of under 15mm by 15mm by 1.0mm, which satisfies space requirements of most new, ultra slim mobile devices.
- Using a DRAM package thinner than 1.0mm enables stacking the package together with UFS memory or a mobile application processor, further space savings on the printed circuit board
We can only hope that Samsung would integrate its newly announced 8GB LPDDR4 DRAM in its next upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. In 2017, the new smartphone will be launched by Samsung, and this time might use LG Chem batteries, as per the report. Also says that it will continue to expand production of its DRAM products based on 10nm class process tech.
