Samsung's LPDDR5 RAM Are Compatible with Snapdragon Processors
Samsung has announced that its LPDDR5X DRAM has been validated to be used with Qualcomm’s high-end mobile platforms.
According to Samsung, the new DRAM chips can offer up to 8.5Gbps data transfer speeds, 1.2x faster than typical 6.4Gbps LPDDR5 DRAM chips used in mobile devices. The chips are expected to boost the performance of video recording as well as AI features, such as voice recognition, image recognition, and natural language processing in next-generation smartphones. Power consumption is also reduced by approximately 20%.
"The successful validation of our LPDDR5X solution for Qualcomm Technologies' Snapdragon mobile platforms is a testament to our leadership in DRAM technology. We expect applications for this high-performance, low-power memory to extend beyond smartphones into data center, PC and automotive, enabling more devices and systems to run with greater efficiency," said Jinman Han, Corporate Executive Vice President and Head of Memory Global Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics.
