Samsung Electronics has announced that it has started mass production for the industry’s first 12Gb (gigabit) LPDDR5 mobile DRAM. The new hardware is optimized for arising technologies 5G and AI, which will be going to include in future smartphones. The Korean company likewise stated that it’s going to mass-produce 12GB (gigabyte) LPDDR5 packages later on this month which integrates eight12Gb chips to deliver higher performance.

Jung-bae Lee, Executive Vice President of DRAM Product & Technology at Samsung Electronics, commented on the production and stated:

With mass production of the 12Gb LPDDR5 built on Samsung’s latest second-generation 10-nanometer (nm) class process, we are thrilled to be supporting the timely launch of 5G flagship smartphones for our customers worldwide. Samsung remains committed to rapidly introducing next-generation mobile memory technologies that deliver greater performance and higher capacity, as we continue to aggressively drive growth of the premium memory market.

The Firm mentioned that the chip could likewise handle ultra-high-definition video recording and artificial intelligence well while extending the life of the battery. The 12gb LPDDR5 has a data rate of 5,500 Mbps (megabits per second) which is much higher than current’s LPDDR4X, which has 4,266 Mbps data rate. In short, it is 1.3 times much faster roughly than today’s high-end smartphone memories.

Samsung also states when the memory LPDDR5 combined with the 12gb package, it’s able to transfer 44gb of data just only in one second, which is equivalent to 12 full-HD movies. The new chip also consumes up to 30 percent less power than its predecessor. The new circuit design integration with improved clocking and low-power features ensures steady efficiency even when running at a blazing fast speed. The LPDDR5 mobile DRAM continues to utilize the 10-nm class process, which the company has been using since September 2016.
