Apr 30, 2013, 6:59 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Samsung today announced that it has begun production of a new, faster memory module for smartphones and tablets. Samsung's 4Gb low power double data rate 3 (LPDDR3) mobile DRAM chip uses the company's 20nm processes, and can transmit data up to 2.1GB per second per pin. To put that in perspective, Samsung claims it can transmit three HD movies, totaling 17GB, in less than one second with the new memory chip. Beyond the raw speed improvements, the chip delivers 30% better performance and 20% greater power efficiency when compared to Samsung's previous-generation 30nm chip. Though production of the new memory module is under way, Samsung doesn't expect to reach volume production until later this year.
