Samsung Launches Industry’s First LPDDR5X DRAM

In a quest to make performance and productivity faster and streamlined, Samsung has finally launched the very first LPDDR5X DRAM in the industry for the ultimate user experience.


Samsung Co. Ltd has finally announced a new feather to their hat of achievements. The tech brand, which specializes in advanced memory technology, has finally announced the launch of the industry-first 14 nanometer (nm) based 16-gigabit LPDDR5X (Low Power Double Data Rate 5X) DRAM for enhanced productivity, efficiency and responsiveness.

The launch of this new memory frame is expected to drive superior growth and support the functioning of the high-speed data service applications with the integration of 5G compliance, AI and metaverse.


SangJoon Hwang, senior vice president and head of the DRAM Design Team at Samsung Electronics emphasized the changing facet of technology and innovation, highlighting the prospects of AI, machine learning and augmented reality. Hwang further suggested that these new technologies need a faster and large scale data processing that these LPDDR5X RAMs will facilitate.

The integration of these new LPDDR5X RAMs will not just limit to smartphones and laptops but its implementation will scale across other industries that leverage AI and the latest innovative technologies, including the automobile sector.

Samsung’s newest 14nm LPDDR5X DRAM is designed to boost the overall speed, capacity and the power savings of the devices they are running in. This will work in tandem with the latest and upcoming 5G applications.

It was just three years ago in 2018 that Samsung released the profoundly used first 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM and now they have further extended their list of innovations with the launch of the very first 16Gb LPDDR5X DRAM.

The reports and analytics suggest that the new LPDDR5X DRAM is expected to offer faster data processing speeds at 8.5 gigabits per second. This is 1.3x faster than its predecessor.


The new RAMs are designed and developed based on the functionalities of the advanced 14nm DRAM process technology. It is also designed to consume 20% less power, compared to the previous LPDDR5 memory.

The new 16Gb LPDDR5X chip will also facilitate up to 64 GB per memory package, enabling faster bootup and working efficiency of the different applications supported by the 5G technology.

Besides the launch, reports suggest that Samsung is all set to collaborate with other leading global chipset manufacturers in the near future for better expansion and a global approach to creating a stable and more viable framework for the memory chipset.

The company is also expected to consistently contribute to their ever increasing DRAM lineup with new innovations, technologies and improvements, reinforcing their placement in the market as the leader.
