Apple can also brush its teeth at Samsung’s new memory chip, the world’s first LPDDR5X DRAM, much faster and more energy-efficient than its predecessor.
Samsung has announced the world’s first LPDDR5X DRAM for mobile devices. The memory chip is made with the industry’s most advanced 14nm DRAM process technology. The chip is 16 GB, and the maximum capacity of each memory packet is 64 GB, which meets the needs for higher-capacity mobile DRAMs.
The data transfer rate is 8.5 Gbps, 1.3 times that of LPDDR5. On the other hand, power consumption can be 20 percent lower, meaning the device can be faster and longer on a single charge.
Samsung promises to start working with global chipset manufacturers later this year, which means the module will be available in smartphones, notebooks, tablets as early as next year, and even in the Galaxy S22, which will be unveiled in early February will be the same.
It’s worth noting that since both the Apple M1 Pro and M1 Max use an LPDDR5 chip, Apple may be switching to LPDDR5X next year. In addition to these devices, the memory chip can be included in servers and cars and contribute to developing artificial intelligence-based components.
