Samsung’s LPDDR5X RAM are compatible with high-end Snapdragon processors


Last updated: March 3rd, 2022 at 09:59 UTC+02:00

Samsung is the world’s biggest memory chip manufacturer, and it is often the first to introduce new memory technologies. Earlier today, the company announced that its LPDDR5X DRAM has been validated to be used with Qualcomm’s high-end mobile platforms.

According to Samsung’s press release, Qualcomm has validated the South Korean firm’s 14nm 16Gb LPDDR5X RAM chips can be used with high-end Snapdragon processors. These new DRAM chips offer up to 7.5Gbps data transfer speeds, which is 1.2x faster than typical 6.4Gbps LPDDR5 DRAM chips used in various mobile devices. These chips are used in the Galaxy S22 series, which was unveiled last month.

Thanks to improved circuit designs and dynamic voltage and frequency scaling, Samsung’s new LPDDR5X DRAM chips offer up to 20% lower energy consumption. These chips could offer better performance in AI tasks like image recognition, NLP (Natural Language Processing), and voice recognition in next-generation smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

Jinman Han, Corporate Executive Vice President and Head of Memory Global Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics, said, “The successful validation of our LPDDR5X solution for Qualcomm Technologies’ Snapdragon mobile platforms is a testament to our leadership in DRAM technology. We expect applications for this high-performance, low-power memory to extend beyond smartphones into the data center, PC and automotive, enabling more devices and systems to run with greater efficiency.
