Samsung Electronics launches the industry's fastest 8.5Gbps LPDDR5X DRAM

Samsung Electronics announced today that its latest LPDDR5X DRAM has passed the verification at the industry's fastest speed of 8.5Gbps and can be used on the Snapdragon mobile platform, which also surpassed Samsung's previous performance in March. Achieved a top speed of 7.5Gbps.

Thanks to its low power consumption and high performance, LPDDR DRAM is rapidly becoming a common product in modern computing systems and expanding into personal computers, high-performance computing (HPC), servers, and automobiles. In the past few years, it has achieved strong growth in these areas.

Recently, LPDDR DRAM has been particularly in demand in the PC market, helping PC makers create smaller, lighter, and more powerful notebooks.

LPDDR memory is also an increasingly important part of modern vehicles. As autonomous driving functions generate more and more data, high-bandwidth memory like LPDDR DRAM is required to process large amounts of vehicle data at faster speeds.

For data center and edge servers, the low-power characteristics of LPDDR DRAM can help reduce power consumption levels, thereby increasing the total cost of ownership (TCO) for data center managers, while reducing heat and carbon emissions, ultimately reducing their impact on climate change.

LPDDR DRAM is also expected to expand its reach in emerging markets such as artificial intelligence (AI) and the metaverse as demand for faster, smaller, and more power-efficient memory increases in various fields.

"Joint validation of the 8.5Gbps LPDDR5X DRAM allows us to accelerate the time-to-market of this high-speed memory interface by over a year, the result of our long-term partnership with Qualcomm Technologies," said Daniel Lee, executive vice president of Samsung Electronics' memory product planning team. Huge achievement. As the use of LPDDR memory continues to expand beyond smartphones to artificial intelligence and data center applications, close cooperation between memory and SoC suppliers becomes even more important. Samsung will continue to be active with innovations like Qualcomm Technologies partners to improve the readiness of the ecosystem for future LPDDR standards.”

"At Qualcomm Technologies, we strive to be at the forefront of implementing and adopting the latest memory specifications on our Snapdragon mobile platform," said Ziad Asghar, vice president of product management at Qualcomm Technologies. Companies that enable the latest LPDDR5X at 8.5Gbps on the platform, which will enhance the user experience by providing new features and improved performance for mobile, gaming, camera, and AI applications.”

Unsurprisingly, the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is expected to support 8.5Gbps LPDDR5X DRAM for the first time.
