Samsung makes first 20nm 3GB RAM chip for smartphones, puts it on the conveyor belt
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 24, 2013, 2:17 AM
Samsung let the world know that it has started mass production of 3 GB LPDDR3 modules for mobile devices. The package is made out of six 20nm class 4Gb LPDDR3 chips with half a gig capacity, so that dual-channel configuration is kept intact, each addressing 1.5 GB.
More RAM means more apps open at one and the same time, faster loading times, especially for games, gapless video playback and other general niceties. Not to mention the marketing talk that we'll pour out of Samsung when it launches "the first smartphone with 3 GB of RAM". Samsung says the chip's footprint is very small, leaving more place for battery and other internals.
We are starting bets in the office whether this will be Note 3, or something further down the road, but mass production start means it will be sooner rather than later.

resource hog by user opening multiple threads such as downloading torrents while playing their favorite tunes, their fingers busy flicking to the game of temple run. All this are done while they are talking to their friends or their family on that same phone. Of course android is a resource hog... Glee! pity those uninformed Windows and Apple fans. If Windows and Apple are better I would have use it but they are still 5 years behind time. Deal with it.

go to a computer class and learn what is RAM means. No matter what is the os, more the RAM more the performance of the phone..

The benefits of more ram becomes almost nothing after 8gb, after 16gb its much better money spent getting better parts in other places. Next gen games will change that, 12gb will probably be the minimum is 3-4 years after games start fully using the ps4/xbox one. Thats in windows though for standard user, servers more ram is always better. I don't think android phones will ever need more than 4 for a long time.

WP has as much functionality as a calculator. Of course it does not need more than 512MB RAM.

As your source said, I think that the package is based on four 6Gb LPDDR3 DRAM chips. I am quote part of your source here " We will develop a new 3GB LPDDR3 solution based on four 6Gb LPDDR3 DRAM chips by symmetrically stacking two chips on each side."
