Samsung Announces 4GB DDR4 Mobile DRAM

By 12:22 Sun, 18 Jul 2021 Comments

Samsung has been working hard this holiday season and today announced its 8Gb (that's 1GB) LPDDR4 mobile DRandom-Access Memory (RAM) chip. This is not only the industry first LPDDR4 mobile DRAM, but it's also the first mobile DRandom-Access Memory (RAM) to fit such a high density (8 gigabits) on a single die. Four of those dies can successfully be combined for a total of 4GB of mobile memory - an amount that so far has not been achieved commercially.

Fabricated on the 20nm manufacturing process, the recent mobile LPDDR4 chips are reportedly 50% faster than the fastest LPDDR3 memory on the market, while also consuming 40% less power at 1.1 volts.

Here's what Young-Hyun Jun, executive vice president, memory sales & marketing, Samsung Electronics assumed regarding the recent product.

This next-generation LPDDR4 DRandom-Access Memory (RAM) will contribute significantly to faster growth of the global mobile DRandom-Access Memory (RAM) market, which will soon comprise the largest share of the entire DRandom-Access Memory (RAM) market

The data transfer speeds the recent 8Gb LPDDR4 DRandom-Access Memory (RAM) chip can achieve are 3,200Mbps per pin - twice the speed of currently produced 20nm LPDDR3 DRAM.

Samsung also hints that the resulting 4GB Random-Access Memory (RAM) modules will be included in "UHD smartphones, tablets and ultra-slim notebooks," which says something about the jump in smartphone classy screen resolution during the next year. Perhaps even the upcoming Galaxy S5 may be one of those UHD smartphones.

Mind you, to utilize that kind of memory, the Galaxy S5 will need a 64-bit Central Processing Units (CPU) architecture. Good thing Samsung promises it's 64-bit SoC will be ready in time for the phone's announcement (usually in the first half of the year).

Thanks for the tip, sharang!
