Samsung is keeping itself busy! On its latest endeavor, the company has started the mass production of its first 8 GB double data rate 4 DRAM modules which have been made especially for smartphones. The company is using its new 20 nanometer process technology for the manufacturing of these chips. This implies that Samsung is now making memory modules that are two times as dense as the current memory chips in the market. This makes them more faster with the usage of less power.
The new technology offers twice the performance and density compared to the 4GB LPDDR3 which is being used widely in manufacturing. What Samsung is working on now will be crucial for the next batch of smartphones which need the rate of up to 3,200 megabits per second (Mbps) to runs UHD recording and 20 megapixels cameras.
As the chipset uses less power, it makes it more battery friendly. It operates on a lower voltage and saves up to 40% of power compared to current chip sets. This new memory chips are welcomed dearly as we will need this for better smartphones!
Samsung is already making 2GB LPDDR4 and 3GB LPDDR4 DRAM memory chips using 8Gb and 6Gb LPDDR4. It will start manufacturing 4GB LPDDR4 packages in early 2015.
