Samsung producing next-gen DRAM

Samsung Electronics has started mass production of a new type of memory chip for mobile devices, LPDDR3, that will dramatically increase performance in future smartphones and tablets.

The new memory, which meets a standard published in May, will allow future devices to play high-definition video in real time on larger mobile screens than is currently possible, Samsung said. The new RAM will allow data rates of 12.8GBps, much faster than the current generation of mobile RAM, which usually transfers at 8.5GBps.
