Samsung starts producing 8 Gigabit LPDDR4 memory modules


Following the post from Samsung’s official blog, the company has started to produce the next generation of mobile DRAM based on 20-nanometer technology. The 8Gb LPDDR4 memory module is faster than the DRAM for personal computers and servers with less energy consumption.

This new 20-nm 8Gb LPDDR4 allows a 4GB LPDDR4 package to be created and enhanced the performance two times compared to the 4Gb LPDDR3. It also supports up to 3,200Mbps I/O rate which is double faster than the DDR3 used in personal computers or laptops.

The new 8Gb LPDDR4 supports recording and playback video with Ultra HD resolution or shooting high-res images.

Samsung has now started to provide the 2GB LPDDR4 and the 3GB LPDDR4 DRAM packages in this month and will provide the 4GB LPDDR4 packages in the next year. Samsung is also collaborating with global mobile device manufacturers to optimize DRAM solutions and will make them suitable for next-generation mobile operating system environments.

The company also expects to increase the production volume of the 20-nm DRAM, including the Samsung’s 8Gb LPDDR4 mobile DRAM and the 8Gb DDR4 DRAM for servers, to accelerating the growth rate of the DRAM market.

So, with this growth, you will see the mobile device with high performance more than the current in next short time.
