Samsung Announces New DRAM Chips for Smartphones

Samsung has announced that it has created a 4GB LPDDR3 dynamic RAM chip to be used on mobile devices. The company claimed that this chip is 1.5 times faster than their current chips and that it works on 20 per cent less power.

The latest DDR3 chip to be launched by Samsung is expected to be next generation DRAM low power consuming chips. This latest chip uses 30 nanometre process technology and is capable of transferring data at the speed of up to 1,600 Mbps (megabits per second). Interestingly, the data transferring speed on the previous LPDDR2 chip was 1,066 Mbps.

The chip will be supporting high resolution displays, faster processors, 3D visuals and so on and so forth, reported The Verge.

The tech giant also revealed that hopefully leading smartphones as well as tablet computer makers will start receiving these 4GB LPDDR3 chips by second quarter of this year and when the next generation smartphone devices start entering the market in early 2013 it will witness huge usage of these chips.

In fact, the company will be producing the chip in huge numbers this year for encouraging its adoption by the device makers.
