We all know very well that currently, the most powerful memory trend is the LPDDR4, capable of working at an incredibly powerful frequency and that can move any type of information without any problem. However, recently, the South Korean giant Samsung teased mind-blowing speeds from its LPDDR5 RAM.
Samsung Just Launched World’s First LPDDR5 RAM, Ready For 5G
The South Korean giant Samsung is far from just a maker of smartphones, tablets, and computers. It creates many of the components that go in these devices and however, recently, the South Korean giant Samsung just announced another version of its RAM, now in standard LPDDR5 DRAM and scoring 8GB on a single chip.
The purpose of this silicon memory is the low power consumption for devices focused on 5G, the internet of things and even with embedded artificial intelligence. The South Korean giant Samsung promises higher performance and lower power consumption compared to the LPDDR4 or LPDDR4X which is currently available in the most powerful gadgets on the market in 2018.
o explain the speed gain, the manufacturer claims to get up to 6400 Mb/s on the new chip, compared to 4266 Mb/s in the standard used in devices already launched. With this speed, you can send 51.2 GB of data to the RAM in just one second. If you put this amount into 3.7GB Full HD movies (more or less what Netflix uses), in a second the RAM can transfer more than 13 movies.
In power consumption, the new LPDDR5 uses half of what is required to run LPDDR4 idle. Overall, the South Korean giant Samsung says that the average consumption of the new 10 nanometer DRAM is 30% lower than the current generation.
Finally, the South Korean giant, of course, Samsung has already managed to produce 8GB modules in LPDDR5, but it is still early to expect this new memory in Galaxy Note 9. It is still necessary to set the DDR5 standard to be able to mass-manufacture the new chip for all its customers, as the tech giant Apple is one of them.
The current industry standard was released in December 2013 and remains present today in handsets such as iPhone 8 Plus. The Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S9 use the LPDDR4X, launched in 2017 as the lowest power variant of LPDDR4.
