Samsung announces 4GB DDR4 mobile DRAM


Samsung has been working arduous this vacation season and these days introduced its 8Gb (which is 1GB) LPDDR4 mobile DRAM chip. This isn’t simplest the trade first LPDDR4 mobile DRAM, however it is also the primary mobile DRAM to suit this sort of excessive density (eight gigabits) on a single die. 4 of these dies can efficiently be blended for a complete of 4GB of mobile reminiscence – an quantity that thus far has no longer been carried out commercially.

Fabricated on the 20nm manufacturing course of, the brand new mobile LPDDR4 chips are reportedly 50% sooner than the quickest LPDDR3 reminiscence in the marketplace, whereas additionally eating forty% much less energy at 1.1 volts.

Here is what Younger-Hyun Jun, govt vp, reminiscence gross sales & advertising and marketing, Samsung Electronics mentioned concerning the brand new product.

This subsequent-technology LPDDR4 DRAM will make contributions considerably to quicker boom of the worldwide mobile DRAM market, if you want to quickly contain the biggest share of your complete DRAM market
