Samsung is one of the most successful tech giants of all time. The company has an impressive, colorful history, and its constant pursuit of innovation granted it a permanent place in the hall of fame.
Samsung has recently announced its plans to massively manufacturer 16GB LPDDR5 DRAM using its third-gen 10nm-class (1z) process in the latter half of the year.
Samsung claims that it has installed a production line at its Pyeongtaek facility to begin mass-producing the first industrial 1z-based 16GB LDDR5 mobile RAM.
The module will be mass-produced with the chaebol’s third-gen 10nm-class (1z) process node with EUV (extreme ultraviolet technology.
As for the company’s executive vice president of DRAM product and technology, Jung-bae Lee, the 16 GB LPDDR5 will overcome a significant roadblock in DRAM scaling and make room for many opportunities industry.
The new memory will return the highest speed and biggest capacity ever for mobile DRAM.
According to Samsung, the LPDDR5 can send data at 6,400 Mb/s, about 16% quicker than 12GB LPDDR5 memory available on flagships like the Galaxy Note 20.
The 16GB option is capable of transferring 51.2 GB worth of data in a single second.
That is the same as transferring ten 5GB-sized full-HD movies! In a second!
The commercialization of the 1z process also means that the package would be about a third thinner than its predecessor, which means that there will be more room for other components in smartphones without needing to enlarge them.
Though it’s certain that the Galaxy S21 (S30) and Samsung’s other future flagship smartphones would pack the 16GB LPDDR6, the company has confirmed that it won’t be limited to its own devices.
