Samsung presents the world's fastest LPDDR5X DRAM chip! With data transfer speeds of up to 10.7Gbps, it is ideal for AI devices.

Samsung, the world's largest manufacturer of memory chips, has unveiled its fastest LPDDR5X DRAM chip. The new chip can achieve data transfer rates of up to 10.7Gbps, which is higher than the 6.4Gbps LPDDR5X chip launched in 2021 and the 8.5Gbps LPDDR5X DRAM chip unveiled in 2022.

This new LPDDR5X DRAM chip from Samsung will be available in late 2024. The South Korean company's new LPDDR5X DRAM chip can be used in laptops, smartphones and tablets. It is manufactured using advanced 12nm-class process technology, which is quite advanced in the memory segment. Samsung also claims that its new chip is the most compact in the LPDDR segment, paving the way for more compact and thinner devices.

The new chip offers 25% faster performance and 30% higher capacity. Furthermore, it is claimed that the new chip is optimized for better AI inference. With the rise of on-device AI processing in computers, smartphones, and tablets, such devices need high-speed, low-power memory. The single package capacity of the new chip has been increased to 32GB, making it an optimal solution for on-device AI.

These chips will be verified in the second half of this year, and they may be ready for flagship chips by the end of this year. YongCheol Bae, Executive VP of Memory Product Planning of the Memory Business at Samsung Electronics, said: “As the demand for low-current, high-performance memory increases, LPDDR DRAM is expected to expand its application range from primarily mobile to other areas that traditionally require higher performance and reliability such as PCs, accelerators, servers and cars. Samsung will continue to innovate and deliver optimized products for the coming on-device AI age through close collaboration with customers."

Considering the verification times for Samsung's new LPDDR5X DRAM chips with 10.7Gbps, it suggests that they will likely be used with flagship smartphone chips, including Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, MediaTek Dimensity 9400 and Samsung's Exynos 2500.

So most high-end smartphones launching later this year or early next year (including the Galaxy S25) can use these new memory chips. These chips are also likely to be used in laptops with Intel's 14th Gen CPUs and AMD's Ryzen 8000 series CPUs.
