Samsung starts producing 5G and AI-ready 12Gb LPDDR5 DRAM chips

Samsung on Thursday announced it is now mass producing what it calls the industry’s first 12Gb LPDDR5 mobile DRAM.

The new mobile memory, which comes just five months after Samsung started mass production of its 12GB LPDDR4X, is built on Samsung’s second-generation 10-nanometer process and is said to be optimized for AI and 5G applications. With a data rate of 5,500 megabits per second (Mb/s), it is approximately 1.3 times faster than LPDDR4X which tops out at 4,266 Mb/s.

The mass production of the all-new 12Gb LPDDR5 is likely to set the stage for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 that is launching on August 7.
