DRAM

Samsung has successfully validated its new LPDDR5X-10700 memory with MediaTek's upcoming Dimensity platform. At present, 10.7 GT/s is the highest performing speed grade of LPDDR5X DRAM slated to be released this year, so the upcoming Dimensity 9400 system-on-chip will get the highest memory bandwidth available for a mobile application processor. The verification process involved Samsung's 16 GB LPDDR5X package and MediaTek's soon-to-be-announced Dimensity 9400 SoC for high-end 5G smartphones. Usage of LPDDR5X-10700 provides a memory bandwidth of 85.6 GB/second over a 64-bit interface, which will be available for bandwidth-hungry applications like graphics and generative AI. "Working together with Samsung Electronics has made it possible for MediaTek's next-generation Dimensity chipset to become the world's first to be validated at LPDDR5X operating speeds up to 10.7Gbps, enabling upcoming...
