Compared with many people, desktop computers only have 8GB of memory. Today's smartphone memory is much more crazy. At the end of last year, the domestic flagship machine had 12GB of memory. In the first half of this year, the flagship was a high-end machine with 12GB of memory.
At present, the smartphone uses LPDDR4X memory. In February of this year, JEDEC (Solid State Storage Association) officially released JESD209-5, which is the new low-power memory standard of Low Power Double Data Rate 5 (LPDDR5). The IO speed is 3200MT/s from LPDDR4. Upgraded to 6400MT/s.
Samsung first introduced the industry's first LPDDR5-6400 memory chip last year before the release of the LPDDR5 standard. However, with a core capacity of 8Gb, Samsung announced the production of 12Gb LPDDR4X memory chips five months ago.
Today Samsung announced mass production of 12Gb LPPDR5 memory, still based on the second-generation 10nm process (should be 1ynm process), the rate is 5500MT/s, which is 30% faster than the current LPDDR4X-4266 memory, and can transmit 44GB in one second. Data, equivalent to 12 full HD movies.
In addition to the 12Gb LPDDR5 chip, Samsung will introduce a 12GB LPDDR5 memory package later this month, each containing eight 12Gb cores to meet the performance and capacity requirements of high-end smartphones.
Samsung plans to transfer production of 12Gb LPDDR5 memory to Pyeongtaek Park in South Korea starting next year, but this depends on the needs of customers around the world. In addition, next year Samsung will also develop 16Gb core LPDDR5 memory, which means that the phone is not far from 16GB of memory.
Finally, Samsung announced the mass production of the 12GB capacity LPDDR5 at this time. It seems that the Galaxy Note 10 will start this memory.
