Samsung talks about 8 Gigabit LPDDR5 DRAM

Samsung announces first 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM chip for mobile devices

And this new 8GB chip wouldn't just give Samsung's phones more RAM, it would also give them better RAM by the sound of things, as this is the industry's first 10-nanometer (nm) 8GB LPDDR5 DRAM.

It is worth noting, however, that Samsung's 10nm Class 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM has not entered volume production. Samsung mentioned that its new DRAM is aimed towards "5G and AI-powered mobile applications". Leveraging the cutting-edge manufacturing infrastructure at its latest line in Pyeongtaek, Korea, Samsung plans to begin mass production of its next-generation DRAM lineups (LPDDR5, DDR5 and GDDR6) in line with the demands of global customers.

Being 1.5x times faster than LPDDR4X RAM, which maxes out at 4,266MB/s, LPDDR5 memory chips will be able to send 51.2GB of data per second, and that is equivalent to 14 full HD video files mounting to a size of 3.7GB each.

Samsung's new DRAM chip will make phones run faster and longer

The 10nm-class LPDDR5 DRAM will be available in two bandwidths: 6400Mb/s at 1.1 operating voltage (V) and 5500Mb/s at 1.05V. This advancement has also been made possible through several architectural enhancements.

These power saving attempts will supposedly decrease power consumption by up to 30 percent, and in the long run, help increase the the battery life of future smartphones. For starters, the company has doubled the number of memory "banks" from eight to 16 to allow for higher speed at lower power consumption. When in active mode, the chip can automatically lower its operating voltage to sync with the operating speed of the application processor. It also has been configured to avoid overwriting cells with "0" values. Nearly all high-end phones, mobile devices, and even portable PCs these days use LPDDR4X or even just LPDDR4. Lastly, the forthcoming LPDDR5 chip employs a refined "deep sleep mode" to lower its power usage to half of the "idle mode" implemented in LPDDR4X chips.
