World’s first 8GB LPDDR3 DRAM chip for mobiles


Smartphones and mobile devices will soon be even faster.

SK Hynix has developed a stacked 20nm 8 gigabyte memory chip that can provide 4GB of RAM in a single package. And because the chip is built on high-density LPDDR3, it will offer greater bandwidth, improved efficiency, and higher data transfer rates that can exceed 2000Mbps.

High end mobile devices incorporating the new chip will be available in the second half of the year, according to SK.
