Samsung intros 8Gb LPDDR4 Mobile DRAM for next-gen smartphones

Samsung on Monday announced a new form of memory chip for smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. In specific terms, the module is an 8Gb, low power double data rate 4 (LPDDR4) DRAM chip on a single 1GB die. In general terms, it’s a much faster memory module than what we’re dealing with today.

With the new chip, Samsung will focus on the premium mobile market including large screen UHD smartphones, tablets and ultra-slim notebooks that offer four times the resolution of full-HD imaging, and also on high-performance network systems.

These chips offer “50 percent higher performance” while using “approximately 40 percent less energy” than the current stuff. According to Samsung, four of these can be combined to create a single 4GB RAM module and that volume production is expected in early 2014.

Sounds like we might look forward to 4GB RAM in the Samsung Galaxy S5, no?
