It looks like 2014 will definitely be a very interesting one, especially for the mobile industry. Samsung recently announced the industry’s first 8 gigabit, low power double data rate 4 (LPDDR4) mobile DRAM, the largest density available for DRAM components today. The chip will be able to churn out about 50% higher performance than the fastest LPDDR3 or DDR3 chips out there while consuming approximately 40% less energy at 1.1 volts.
The 8Gb LPDDR4 chip is made using 20nm class process technology that offers 1GB on a single die. Four of the 8Gb chips combined could offer a single 4GB LPDDR4 package, this means that yes, you might be able to see 4GB of RAM in your future smartphone. According to Samsung, the chip is targeted for the premium mobile market including large screen UHD smartphones, tablets and ultra-slim notebooks that offer four times the resolution of full-HD imaging, and also on high-performance network systems.
