Samsung unveils the first 8GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM module

Samsung unveils the first 8GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM module
Back in December 2014, Samsung introduced a 4GB LPDDR4 DRAM package which paved the way for today's phones and tablets carrying 4GB of RAM. Of course, some of today's high-end devices now come with 6GB of RAM. And today, Samsung has taken matters to the next level with the introduction of the first 8GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM package.

The new DRAM package uses four of the latest 16Gb LPDDR4 memory chips built using the latest 10nm process. The 8GB LPDDR4 runs at 4266 Mbps, which is double the speed of DDR4 technology found on desktops. And once the 8GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM module is employed inside high quality tablets, these slates will be able to offer some of the same features seen on premium PCs including smoother 4K video playback and the ability to support virtual machine operation. While the new package doubles the capacity of the Samsung 20nm 4GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM module, it uses the same amount of power.

In its release today, Samsung did not mention when the new DRAM package will be available to manufacturers.
