Samsung announces first 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM chip for mobile devices

Samsung's 8Gb LPDDR5 chip wants to power future 5G and AI phones

Meet Samsung's swish slice of memory silicon

The new hardware has a data rate of 6,400 Mb/s, which is 1.5x faster than mobile DRAM chips used in today's flagship mobile devices. The 6400Mbps data transfer rate allows the new LPDDR5 to send 51.2GB of data, or approximately 14 full-HD video files (3.7GB each) in just a second.

The LPDDR5 module, for the technically interested, is the first 10-nanometer-class 8GB RAM we've seen, and it joins two 16GB RAM modules Samsung already produces in its premium 10nm class, although these are not designed for mobile devices.

Corning unveils its latest Gorilla Glass
Corning asserts that Gorilla Glass 6 is an " entirely new material ", created to address the challenge of multiple drops. Apple has famously moved to what is almost an all-glass design with hardware like iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus.

Samsung Electronics announced that it has successfully developed the industry's first 10 nm class 8 Gb LPDDR5 DRAM.

The all-new 10nm 8GB LPDDR5 employs a highly advanced, speed-optimized circuit architecture that ascertain and ensure achieving ultra-high-speed performance. This new chip will support Samsung's objective of transitioning to the LPDDR5 standard for use in upcoming 5G and AI-powered mobile applications. Samsung thus bills it as the "most versatile mobile memory solution" for next-generation smartphones and automotive systems. The 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM is latest in the premium lineup of DRAM from Samsung. When in "active mode", the new LPDDR5 DRAM will automatically lower its voltage in accordance to different application's operating speed in order to save battery life. Samsung has also configured the chip to avoid overwriting cells with "0" values and added a "deep sleep mode" to cut down power consumption by nearly half the "idle mode" of current LPDDR4X DRAM chips. A deep sleep mode has also been added to cut the power usage by half of that in the current LPDDR4X DRAM.

Carmelo Anthony Traded To Atlanta Hawks
The 6-foot-11 forward/center averaged 7.6 points and 4.3 rebounds in 20.0 minutes and shot 37.1 percent from 3-point last season . He struggled as the third option behind Russell Westbrook and Paul George, who will be returning to OKC next season without him.

Samsung might be best known for its smartphones and consumer electronics but it might surprise you to know that its most steady and most profitable business as been from its silicon, particularly its memory and storage products. Samsung hopes to begin mass production of its entire next-generation DRAM lineup (LPDDR5, DDR5, and GDDR6) "in line with the demands of global customers". LPDDR memory chips are used in mobile devices such as handhelds and ultrabooks, which usually come with 64-bit buses, so the bandwidth can be increased to 50 GB/s.
