Samsung starts producing 4GB DRAM for smartphones and tablets
Samsung has announced that it’s now manufacturing ultra-high-speed 4GB low power double data rate 3 (LPDDR3) mobile DRAM modules.
Produced using 20 nanometer technology, the new 4GB DRAM will be perfect for next-generation high-end smartphones and tablets.
Compared to 30nm-class LPDDR3 DRAM modules, the 20nm 4GB DRAM offers 30% improved performance, while consuming 20% less power.
“By providing the most efficient next-generation mobile memory with a very large data capacity, we are now enabling OEMs to introduce even more innovative designs in the marketplace. Our 20nm-class four gigabit mobile DRAM provides another example of our ability to deliver well-differentiated, high-performance, high-density memory to customers in a timely manner,” declared Young-Hyun Jun, executive vice president, memory sales & marketing, Samsung Electronics.
Since Samsung will introduce the new Galaxy Note III later this year (probably in September), maybe this is going to be the first device to use the new 20nm 4GB DRAM. And that rumored Nexus 11 could benefit from it, too. We’ll see.
