Samsung started the production of 16 GB LPDDR5 RAM

The Korean giant factory in Pyeongtaek has begun manufacturing of the 16GB LPDDR5 DRAM modules. Samsung announced on its website that the new package is built on the second-gen 10nm process and offers 5,500Mb/s data transfer speed.

The platform consists of eight 12-gigabit chips and four 8-gigabit chips, providing “twice the DRAM capacity found in many higher-end laptops and gaming PCs today” to quote Samsung’s press release. The reason for the ongoing development of technology and higher capacity is the increasing demand for power, performance, speed, enhanced 5G and AI features like smart photography.

The company also unveiled it’s plans to mass-produce 16GB LPDDR5 products built on its third-generation 10nm-class (1z) process technology later this year that would up the data transfer speed to 6,400 Mb/s. That way the Korean giant can “solidify its competitive edge in markets such as premium mobile devices, high-end PCs and automotive applications.”
