Samsung Launches Industry’s First 8GB LPDDR4 DRAM for Mobile Devices

Samsung 8GB RAM LPDDR4

Samsung has introduced the industry’s first 8GB (gigabyte) LPDDR4 DRAM package for mobile devices. The new DRAM package utilizes 10nm-class process and four of the newly developed 16Gb (gigabit) LPDDR4 memory chips.

According to Samsung, The new 8GB LPDDR4 operates at up to 4266 Mbps, which is twice as fast as the DDR4 DRAM for PCs that typically works at 2133 Mbps per pin. It allows to transmit over 34 GB data per second on a 64-bit wide memory bus.

In addition to smoother 4K UHD video playback, the tablets featuring this 8GB LPDDR4 RAM will be capable of running virtual machines. “While many high-end ultra-slim note PCs use 8GB of DRAM currently, Samsung’s new 8GB LPDDR4 package will help other next-generation mobile devices take full advantage of its extremely high capacity.” – says Samsung.

10nm-class process makes this new DRAM much efficient in power consumption as its design enables to double the capacity of the company’s 20nm-class 4GB DRAM package in approximately the same amount of power. The new 8GB package is only 1mm thick to help manufacturers produce thinner smartphones while it also allows to be stacked together with UFS memory or the processor to save space on the printed circuit board.

Samsung really seems to be proud to announce this new 8GB DRAM package after only a 14-month development period as last year in August, the company introduced industry-first 20nm 12Gb (gigabit) LPDDR4 DRAM.

While Samsung has not denoted the shipment of the new 8GB DRAM pacakge, the company has disclosed about its rapid expansion of 10nm-class DRAM production. We can expect to see the smartphones and tablets soon with the 8GB package in near future.
