LPDDR5X DRAM officially unveiled by Samsung as fastest ever chip

As a logical development of LPDDR5, Samsung indicated it was working on LPDDR5X, and the firm revealed today that the DRAM chips had passed validation.

The newest memory can operate at 8.5 Gbps rates, which is the fastest DRAM speed available in the market. It easily outperformed the 7.5 Gbps top speed that was attained back in March.

Although LPDDR5X technology is not new to the market and has previously been used by a number of devices, the new memory will enable even faster speeds to be obtained with little internal change.

According to Samsung, LPDDR5X is appropriate for uses outside of smartphones, including PCs, servers, and vehicles, because of its low power consumption and excellent performance levels.

Samsung was able to speed up the market availability by more than a year by collaborating with Qualcomm on the development of the 8.5 Gbps LPDDR5X DRAM, according to Daniel Lee, EVP of the Memory Product Planning Team at Samsung.

The San Diego-based business, according to Ziad Asghar, VP of Product Management at Qualcomm, is the first in the mobile sector to enable the newest, fastest memory on its chipsets.
