Samsung Announces Industry First LPDDR5X DRAM Module, Could Debut in Galaxy S22 Smartphones


Samsung has announced that it has developed the industry’s first LPDDR5X DRAM that offers high performance, low power consumption and the ability to process AI-powered applications “beyond smartphones”. The South Korean company says the new module is a 14nm-based 16Gb chip that can be stacked on up to 64GB configurations to easily handle tasks that require high-speed, large-scale computing to do. It could be that Samsung will debut this module along with the Exynos 2200 SoC with a superior AMD Radeon graphics chip in the Galaxy S22 flagship smartphones early next year.

According to Samsung’s announcement, the next-generation LPDDR5X mobile DRAM will “significantly increase speed, capacity and energy savings for future 5G applications”. It is also said that the DRAM will offer data processing speeds of up to 8.5 Gbps, which is more than 1.3 times faster than the 6.4 Gbps of LPDDR5, which was introduced in 2018. In addition, the DRAM should also be more energy efficient and should consume around 20 percent less power than LPDDR5 memory.

Samsung plans to work with global chipset manufacturers this year. In addition, it is possible that the South Korean company will introduce this technology in the Galaxy S22 smartphones. Reports suggest that the Exynos 2200 SoC will be a powerful mobile platform, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 SoC due to a superior AMD Radeon graphics chip. This DRAM could supposedly help Samsung deliver powerful yet energy efficient performance in these flagships.
