The utilization of 12 nm process technology in the new memory has enabled Samsung to create the smallest LPDDR module among current solutions. This advancement caters to the increasing need for low-power, high-performance memory chips. Although primarily targeted at the mobile market, Samsung’s EVP suggests it will also have applications in servers, automobiles, and accelerators, without specifying particular devices.

The new memory will be released with a speed of 10.7 Gbps and will offer a maximum capacity of 32GB per module. Devices demanding ample RAM, such as those utilized for generative AI, will find this capacity advantageous, facilitating the storage of AI models. This will be especially crucial for systems employing APU/NPUs for generative AI and lacking a discrete GPU, as larger memory capacities can accommodate more advanced models.
