Samsung unveiled compact LPCAMM memory modules that will "change the market"
Samsung Electronics has introduced new LPCAMM RAM modules. According to a press release, the new memory will "change the market". The RAM utilizes LPDDR5x chips and can achieve data transfer rates of up to 7.5 Gbps with low power consumption and a compact form factor.
Samsung explained that there are usually two types of memory modules used in computers: LPDDR DRAM and SO-DIMM. Both have their disadvantages. In the case of LPDDR DRAM is soldered to the motherboard and cannot be quickly replaced. SO-DIMM modules can be quickly removed and installed, but they have performance limitations and more. LPCAMM solves these problems.
LPCAMM, as a removable module, provides increased flexibility for computer manufacturers. Compared to SO-DIMMs, LPCAMM offers 60 percent smaller size, 50 percent more performance and 70 percent better power efficiency.
Samsung expects to use the new memory in both mainstream PCs and notebooks, as well as in data centers. The new LPCAMM memory modules will be tested by major customers before the end of the year. Commercial distribution is expected next year.
