Samsung announced earlier today it has began mass producing its latest 6Gb LPDDR3 mobile DRAM chips. They’re made using the 20nm manufacturing process and are designed with high performance smartphones and tablets in mind by achieving data transfer rates of up to 2,133Mbps.
A 3GB LPDDR3 package can now be made using four 6Gb LPDDR3 chips is 20% smaller and consumes 10% less energy than existing 3GB packages such as the one found in the Galaxy Note 4. The 20nm process also results in 30% productivity gain compared to the 30nm process.
Back in March, the company applied the 20nm process on its 4Gb DDR3 RAM chips for the PC market. This is the first time the company is embracing the manufacturing process for mobile DRAM. Samsung also expressed its future plans to introduce a variety of mobile DRAM chips built on the 20nm process.
