Samsung’s Announces its First 8GB LPDDR4 DRAM Package

Samsung Electronics have recently Introduced the world to the first 8-gigabyte (GB) LPDDR4 (low power, double data rate 4) mobile DRAM package. This bit of hardware is ideally suited to mobile devices, meaning mainly tablets and computers at this stage, and will cater for larger displays and improve the overall mobile user experience.
This is potentially an excellent solution for Tizen secure mobile devices that require larger memory in order to run Tizen 3.0, with wayland requiring greater resources than we previously needed for Tizen 2.x. The 8GB mobile DRAM package utilizes four of the newest 16 gigabit (Gb) LPDDR4 memory chips and advanced 10-nanometer (nm)-class process technology.

“The advent of our powerful 8GB mobile DRAM solution will enable more capable next-generation, flagship mobile devices around the world,” said Joo Sun Choi, executive vice president of Memory Sales and Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to provide advanced memory solutions offering the highest values and leading-edge benefits to meet the escalating needs of devices having dual camera, 4K UHD and VR features.”

The new memory will be able to operate at up to 4,266 megabits per second (Mbps), which is twice as fast as the current DDR4 DRAM that is presently being used in PCs that typically runs at 2,133 Mbps per pin. New devices utilising this technology will enable virtual machine operation and smoother 4K UHD video playback, all done at greater power efficiency due to the 10nm-class process silicon.
These chips roughly consume the same amount of power as the previous generation 20nm-class 4GB DRAM package. The 8GB LPDDR4 package has XYZ dimensions of under 15mm by 15mm by 1.0mm, which makes it ideal for ultra slim mobile devices.
