SangJoon Hwang, Senior Vice President and Head of Samsung’s DRAM Design Team, stated that “In recent years, hyper connected market segments such as AI, augmented reality (AR) and the metaverse, which rely on extremely fast large-scale data processing, have been rapidly expanding.”

He further added that; “Our LPDDR5X will broaden the use of high-performance, low power memory beyond smartphones and bring new capabilities to AI-based edge applications like servers and even automobiles.”


Notably, the company’s LPDDR5X will offer over 1.3x faster processing speed while consuming nearly 20 percent lower power than the previous LPDDR5 solution, which should benefit the upcoming smartphone generations.
