The 8.5 gigabits per second (Gbps) newest LPDDR5X DRAM from Samsung Electronics, the industry leader in advanced memory technology, has been approved for usage on Snapdragon mobile platforms, the company said today. Samsung has increased the previous maximum speed of 7.5Gbps attained in March by improving a high-speed communication environment between the application processor and memory, reiterating its dominance in the memory industry.
Since it has been a market leader in mobile DRAM for more than a decade, Samsung has helped high-end smartphones become more widely used, allowing a larger number of users to enjoy strong processing capabilities on their mobile devices.

Samsung unveils the 8.5Gbps LPDDR5X DRAM
LPDDR DRAM is swiftly taking over modern computer systems because of its low-power and high-performance qualities. It is moving beyond smartphones and into PCs, high-performance computing (HPC), servers, and vehicles, where it has had strong development in recent years.
With its capacity to combine high performance and low power consumption in a tiny form factor, LPDDR5X DRAM has recently experienced particularly strong demand from the PC sector, where it is assisting PC manufacturers in creating laptops that are more compact, lighter, and more powerful.
Extremely important in contemporary automobiles is LPDDR memory. To analyse vast volumes of vehicle data at significantly quicker rates as autonomous driving capabilities create more and more data, high-bandwidth memory like LPDDR DRAM is required.
The low-power properties of LPDDR DRAM for data centres and edge servers can aid in lowering power consumption levels, and improving total cost of ownership (TCO) for data centre administrators while reducing heat and carbon emissions to eventually lessen their influence on climate change.
LPDDR DRAM is anticipated to expand its footprint in new sectors driven by artificial intelligence (AI) and the metaverse as the need for faster, smaller, and more power-efficient memory grows across several fields.
According to Daniel Lee, Executive Vice President of the Memory Product Planning Team at Samsung Electronics, “The joint validation of 8.5Gbps 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.”
Strong cooperation between memory and SoC suppliers is essential as LPDDR memory’s uses continue to expand beyond smartphones into AI and data centre applications. To improve ecosystem preparation for upcoming LPDDR standards, Samsung will continue to aggressively collaborate with innovators like Qualcomm Technologies.
When it comes to enabling and implementing the most recent memory requirements on our Snapdragon mobile platforms, Qualcomm Technologies aims to be at the forefront. According to Ziad Asghar, Vice President of Product Management at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., we are the first in the mobile industry to enable the most recent LPDDR5X DRAM at 8.5Gbps on Snapdragon mobile platforms, which will improve user experiences with new features and improved performance for mobile, gaming, camera, and AI applications.
