LPDDR6 RAM to Reportedly Debut on Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC Later This Year

Mar14,2024


LPDDR6 RAM (Low Power Double Data Rate 6 Random Access Memory) – The next version of RAM may come out later this year. It is expected to be announced in the third quarter of this year and may be used on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset. The LPDDR6 memory that will replace the existing LPDDR5 memory is expected to offer better data transfer speeds and increased bandwidth compared to its predecessor. Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S25 series is said to come with LPDDR6 memory and Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC with increased data bandwidth to perform AI tasks. This could give the flagship series an advantage over the next iPhone 16 series.

According to a report by Korean publication AjuNews, Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix are ramping up mass production of LPDDR6 DRAM to become leaders in the AI-powered industry. The LPDDR6 memory that will replace the existing LPDDR5 reportedly offers better data bandwidth for faster processing of AI tasks on the device.

The Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) is reportedly going to announce the specifications of LPDDR6 DRAM in September. Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix are also expected to unveil their own LPDDR6 DRAM chips around that time.

The current generation LPDDR5 DRAM standard was announced in February 2019. Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix have introduced LPDDR5X and LPDDR5T variants respectively.

The performance of LPDDR6 is still a secret. The maximum bandwidth of LPDDR5 is 6.4Gbps while the bandwidth of LPDDR5X is 8.5Gbps. The handset powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC is expected to use LPDDR6 memory to achieve increased data bandwidth to perform AI tasks. The Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+ models are expected to run on this next-generation Qualcomm chipset in select countries, while the Galaxy S25 Ultra may use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC worldwide.

Meanwhile, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC with Qualcomm's custom Orion CPU cores is expected to arrive in October this year. These CPU cores and the new LPDDR6 are predicted to perform faster than the CPU cores in Apple's upcoming A18 Pro.
