Samsung's new chips usher in smartphones with 16GB of DRAM

  Samsung's new chips usher in smartphones with 16GB of DRAM You could soon see more and faster DRAM in next-generation flagship smartphones than in many PCs. Samsung has just unveiled the first 16GB LPDDR5 mobile DRAM chips built on its second-generation 10-nanometer process tech, the company has announced. We've already seen this chip in Samsung's Galaxy S20 Ultra, and it'll likely appear in more flagship phones in the very near future. On top of boosting the memory of upcoming smartphones, it'll makeOn top of boosting the memory of upcoming smartphones, it'll make them faster as well, thanks to the LPDDR5's 5,500 Mbps (687.5 MB/s) speeds, about 30 percent quicker than 4,266 Mbps 8GB LPDDR4X chips.

Samsung announced its first million 10nm class D1X DDR4 RAM modules based on the EUV ( Extreme Ultraviolet ) lithography process have been shipped as the company is planning to move its entire production on the EUV lines next year.

Samsung just reached an important milestone in memory for PCs and mobile devices. The tech firm has shipped the first million 10nm-grade DDR4 DRAM modules based on an extreme ultraviolet process. The next-gen lithography technique should help Samsung get past barriers in DRAM scaling, allowing for better performance, shorter development time and better yields (that is, fewer bad chips). Don't be surprised if your next computer or phone has fewer memory bottlenecks.

You shouldn't expect to see EUV-based memory everywhere for a while. Samsung won't have another factory for this until the second half of 2020, and it doesn't expect to start mass production of speedier DDR5 memory until sometime in 2021. This is more of a peek at the future of RAM than an immediately appreciable upgrade.

Samsung pulls Galaxy S20 Ultra update following glitches .
Samsung’s ongoing efforts to fix bugs in the Galaxy S20 Ultra aren’t quite going according to plan. SamMobilereports that Samsung has pulled its latest update days after reports of glitches. While the company hasn’t outlined just what prompted the decision, users have reported green screen tinting when the display is set to use its signature high refresh rate, not to mention slower high-speed charging. We’ve asked Samsung if it can comment on the move.There are reportedly already plans to fix the tinting issue, but that and other flaws (most notably slow camera autofocus) have marred the Ultra’s debut.
