Samsung starts producing 6GB RAM chips for smartphones

Vince, 09 September, 2015

With more and more smartphones now launching with 4GB of RAM, it's time to look forward and catch a glimpse of the future. Thanks to Samsung, it's now in sight, as the company has started mass producing the industry's first 6GB mobile DRAM chips.

Based on the company's 20-nanometer technology, the new high capacity mobile RAM consumes 20% less energy compared to the preceding 20-nanometer based 8Gb LPPDDR4. It's also 30% faster reaching a read speed of 4.2Gbps.

Samsung says the new 12Gb mobile DRAM modules that form the 6GB package fit into the same space as the 3GB LPDDR4 packages, which is great news for phone manufacturers.

Samsung also expects that due to the exceptional benefits of its LPDDR4 mobile memory, application areas will expand beyond smartphones and tablets to include ultra-slim PCs, digital appliances and automotive devices, in the coming years.
