Samsung announces its first 8GB DDR5 RAM for mobile devices

Samsung has just announced that it is the first to hit 10nm-class 8Gb LPDDR5 production, after announcing it developed 16Gb DDR5 for the desktop PC back in February.

The new 8Gb LPDDR5 DRAM is the latest addition to the company's premium DRAM lineup, which includes 10nm-class 16Gb GDDR6 DRAM and 16Gb DDR5 DRAM. Interestingly, as far as we know, this is the first product that's using the LPDDR5 memory standard.

Basra protests spread to capital
Protesters complain that jobs are not given to people in the province. "And our streets are bad", a protester in Basra told Rudaw. The government has also severely restricted Internet access in an attempt to disrupt the coordination of further demonstrations.


Samsung will release the 10nm LPDDR5 DRAM chips in two variants-a 6,400 Mb/s chip operating at 1.1V and a slightly slower 5,500 Mb/s chip that runs at 1.05V. The low-power features allow the LPDDR5 RAM to deliver power consumption reductions of up to 30 percent, which will have a positive impact on maximizing performance and extending smartphone battery life.

Being 1.5x times faster than LPDDR4X RAM, which maxes out at 4,266MB/s, LPDDR5 memory chips will be able to send 51.2GB of data per second, and that is equivalent to 14 full HD video files mounting to a size of 3.7GB each. By doubling the number of memory "banks" - subdivisions within a DRAM cell - from eight to 16, the new memory can attain a much higher speed while reducing power consumption.

Netflix Earnings: Stock Tanks on Weak Subscriber Adds
Before the earnings report , Netflix shares had gained 109 percent, making it the second-strongest performer on the S&P 500 index. Morgan is expecting Netflix's gross profit to be $6.4 billion in 2018, up from $4 billion a year ago .


Samsung expects the high bandwidth of these chips to be leveraged for AI-powered applications and 5G-enabled phones. "We will continue to expand our next-generation 10nm-class DRAM lineup as we accelerate the move toward greater use of premium memory across the global landscape". LPDDR memory chips are used in mobile devices such as handhelds and ultrabooks, which usually come with 64-bit buses, so the bandwidth can be increased to 50 GB/s.

If the Samsung Galaxy S10 does get this chip it would be a big upgrade, as the standard Samsung Galaxy S9 only has 4GB of RAM - though the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus has 6GB.

An ESPN Insider Has A Major Update On Manny Machado Trade
The Blue Jays are going nowhere this season in the AL East, but Happ knows he might be going somewhere else. He's now hitting.315 with 24 home runs, 65 RBI and what would be a career-best.962 OPS.
