SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics unveiled a next-generation mobile DRAM that can significantly boost speed, capacity and power savings for future 5G applications. The new product called "PDDR5X" leveraged the industry’s most advanced 14-nanometer DRAM process technology. Its operating speed is the fastest among existing mobile DRAMs.

The LPDDR5X chip will enable up to 64 gigabytes per memory package, accommodating increasing demand for higher-capacity mobile DRAM worldwide, Samsung said, adding the company would work with global chipset manufacturers to establish a more viable framework for the expanding world of digital reality.

"In recent years, hyperconnected market segments such as AI, augmented reality and the metaverse, which rely on extremely fast large-scale data processing, have been rapidly expanding," Samsung's DRAM design team head Hwang Sang-joon said in a statement on November 9. "Our LPDDR5X will broaden the use of high-performance, low-power memory beyond smartphones and bring new capabilities to AI-based edge applications like servers and even automobiles."
