Samsung Announces LPDDR5X-8500 Memory
Samsung Introduces Fastest LPDDR5X 8.5Gbps DRAM Memory
Samsung electronics is the leading manufacturer of advanced technology globally. Recently, Samsung announced their latest LPDDR5X DRAM chip comprises the industry’s fastest speed that can be used on Snapdragon mobile platforms.
LPDDR RAMs are quickly becoming popular with modern computing systems beyond smartphones, PCs, servers, automobiles, and high-performance computing (HPC). The LPDDR5X Memory is one example of how Samsung DRAM Technology has encouraged the usage of smartphones among users, allowing the users to optimize a high-speed signal environment between application, processors and memory. Samsung’s LPDDR5X promises to deliver exceptionally fast performance with a speed of 8.5GB/s, surpassing the maximum speed of 7.5GB/s previously achieved in March. This speed improvement is sufficient to reaffirm Samsung’s leadership in the memory market. These fastest DDR5 memory modules are designed specifically for applications like Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, or multimedia editing software requiring higher bandwidth to perform tasks efficiently.
Difference Between Dual Rank and Single Rank RAM
Moreover, with Samsung validating its LPDDR5X-8500 memory with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon mobile platforms, both Samsung and Qualcomm are all in for validating the top-notch Snapdragon system on-chips for smartphones that connect the laptops with the fastest memory chips available. This DRAM Memory is likely to be used by smartphones and handsets and beyond, with PCs always connected featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoCs.
The LPDDR memory was designed for smartphones, but now it is being widely used in Apple’s desktops, notebooks, and laptops that are powered by system-on-chips by AMD, Intel, and Qualcomm. At the same time, Apple tends to use LPDDR4X/LPDDR5 memory chips with comprehensive interfaces that ensure that memory bandwidth is maximized without requiring expensive high-bandwidth memory (HBM). It is one of the reasons why many companies use high-speed LPDDR5/LPDDR5X memory with a ‘standard’ 128-bit interface that maximizes memory bandwidth compared to DDR4 and DDR5 RAMs.
However, Intel has yet to validate its processors with the fastest DDR5 RAM, i.e., LPDDR5X memory, as the 12th Gen Alder Lake processors can support memory modules up to LPDDR5-5200 and do not possess the capability of supporting LPDDR5X DRAM nor the transfer speed of 8500GB/s. Whereas 13th Gen Raptor Lake processors can support both LPDDR5X memory modules and high data transfer rates.

Daniel Lee, Executive Vice President of the Memory Product Planning Team at Samsung Electronics, claimed, “The joint validation of 8.5 GB/s LPDDR5X DRAM has enabled us to accelerate market-wide availability of this high-speed memory interface by more than a year, which is a tremendous accomplishment made possible through our long-standing collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies.” He further elaborated, “As LPDDR memory continues to broaden its usage beyond smartphones into AI and data center applications, strong collaboration between memory and SoC vendors is becoming all the more important. Samsung will continue to actively engage with innovators like Qualcomm Technologies to enhance ecosystem readiness for future LPDDR standards.
