Samsung has just unveiled a rather unique 8 gigabits LPDDR4 mobile RAM which is the first of its kind and is made using the 20nm process. What this means is that it can take up to 1GB of RAM in a single die, which has never happened before. This opens possibility for up to 4GB of RAM on future Samsung mobile devices, although it’s clearly overkill at this point.
We can probably expect Samsung notebooks or tablets to come with this DDR4 RAM in the near future, but don’t rule out implementation on smartphones either. The company has already hinted that this could make its way to powerful UHD tablets and smartphones. To go into the specifics of the LPDDR4 RAM, it can gain up to 3,200 Mbps of speed per pin which is double the amount achieved by the current gen LPDDR3 RAM, so it’s a substantial upgrade.
Samsung executive Young-Hyun Jun said the following in a subsequent statement – “This next-generation LPDDR4 DRAM will contribute significantly to faster growth of the global mobile DRAM market, which will soon comprise the largest share of the entire DRAM market.”
