Samsung Develops First 8Gb LPDDR4 Mobile RAM, Ready for 4GB RAM in Phones?

Just when you thought the 3GB of RAM in the Galaxy Note 3 was something to brag to your Windows Vista friends about, Samsung shows up with a pre-CES announcement about new 8Gb LPDD4 RAM that could potentially put 4GB of RAM in your phone in the near future. We are talking 1GB on a single die, 50 percent higher performance over the fastest LPDDR3 RAM, and 40 percent less power consumption. 

As you would imagine, this new DRAM is geared for the high-end mobile market, meaning this could be used in tablets, phones, and ultra-slim notebooks. What I found interesting about the announcement, was Samsung’s mention that with this new chip, that high-end market will include devices with UHD (ultra HD) displays. That may or may not be a hint as to what we’ll see from the company in the very near future, but I’m also a firm believer in companies not saying something that specific unless it has meaning.

Samsung’s new 8Gb LPDDR4 DRAM will be available in 2014.
