Samsung's 8Gb LPDDR4 Mobile DRAM Will Lead to Faster, 4K Ultra HD Phones | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) |

Samsung is closing out the year by introducing what it claims is the industry's first 8-gigabit (Gb), low power double data rate 4 (LPDDR4), mobile DRAM built a on 20nm-class manufacturing process technology.

Using the new chips, DRAM players can cram 1 gigabyte (GB) on a single die, which is the largest density available for DRAM components today, Samsung says.

The chips are also fast and power efficient.

What this means for end users is that device makers can start building premium mobile products such as large screen UHD 4K smartphones, tablets, and ultra-slim notebooks.
