Samsung unveils industry’s fastest LPDDR5X DRAM for next-gen PCs

Samsung announced that it has developed the industry’s first LPDDR5X DRAM (Dynamic Random-Access Memory), which has a supporting performance of up to 10.7 gigabits per second (Gbps). This type of memory will be used in AI PCs, automobiles, accelerators, and servers.

With the recent surge of AI applications and technologies, more devices, such as AI PCs, are expected to process calculations on devices instead of sending them to the cloud. Low-power and high-performance LPDDR memory will be crucial in the process, says Samsung.

“LPDDR DRAM is expected to expand its applications from mainly mobile to other areas that traditionally require higher performance and reliability such as PCs, accelerators, servers, and automobiles,” said YongCheol Bae, Executive Vice President of Memory Product Planning of the Memory Business at Samsung Electronics, in a press release.

According to the company, leveraging 12-nanometer class process technology, Samsung has achieved the smallest chip size among existing LPDDRs.

The 10.7Gbps LPDDR5X improves performance by 25% and capacity by more than 30% compared to its predecessors, says Samsung.

In particular, the LPDDR5X incorporates specialized power-saving technologies. These include an optimized power variation that adjusts power according to workload and expands low-power mode intervals, which extend energy-saving periods.

According to the company, these improvements enhance power efficiency by 25% over the previous generation, enabling mobile devices to provide longer battery life and allowing servers to minimize the total cost of ownership by lowering energy usage when processing data.

Mass production of the 10.7Gbps LPDDR5X is scheduled to begin by the second half of the year.
