Samsung 10nm 32GB DDR4 SoDIMM
Samsung Electronics has started mass producing 32GB DDR4 memory for gaming laptops in the widely used format of small outline dual in-line memory modules (SoDIMMs). The new SoDIMMs are based on 10nm-class process technology that will allow users to enjoy enriched PC-grade computer games on the go. Using the new memory solution, PC manufacturers can build faster top-of-the-line gaming-oriented laptops with longer battery life at capacities exceeding conventional mobile workstations, while maintaining existing PC configurations, according to Samsung. Compared to Samsung's 16GB SoDIMM based on 20nm-class 8Gb DDR4, which was introduced in 2014, the new 32GB module doubles the capacity while being 11% faster and approximately 39% more energy efficient, said the vendor. With a total of 16 of Samsung's newest 16Gb DDR4 DRAM chips (eight chips each mounted on the front and back), the 32GB SoDIMM allows gaming laptops to reach speeds up to 2,666Mbps. A 64GB laptop configured with two 32GB DDR4 modules consumes less than 4.6W in active mode and less than 1.4W when idle, said Samsung. This reduces power usage by approximately 39% and over 25%, respectively, compared to today's leading gaming-oriented laptops, which are equipped with 16GB modules.

Samsung Electronics has begun mass producing NVM Express (NVMe) PCIe solid state drive (SSD) in a single ball grid array (BGA) package for next-generation PCs and ultra-slim notebook PCs. The new BGA NVMe SSD, named PM971-NVMe, features a compact package that contains all essential SSD components including NAND flash memory, DRAM and controller. Configuring the PM971-NVMe SSD in a single BGA package was enabled by combining 16 of Samsung's 48-layer 256Gb V-NAND flash chips, one 20nm 4Gb LPDDR4 mobile DRAM chip and a high-performance Samsung controller. The new SSD is 20x16x1.5mm and weighs only about one gram. The single-package SSD's volume is approximately a 100th of a 2.5-inch SSD or HDD, and its surface area is about a fifth of an M.2 SSD. The PM971-NVMe SSD enables sequential read and write speeds of up to 1,500MB/s and 900MB/s respectively, when TurboWrite technology is used. The performance figures can be directly compared to transferring a 5GB-equivalent, Full-HD movie in about three seconds or downloading it in about six seconds. It also boasts random read and write IOPS of up to 190K and 150K respectively. The PM971-NVMe SSD line-up will be available in 512GB, 256GB and 128GB storage options. Samsung will start providing the new SSDs to its customers in June worldwide.

Samsung 12Gb LPDDR4 DRAM
Samsung Electronics has announced that it is mass producing 12Gb LPDDR4 (low power, double data rate 4) mobile DRAM chips based on its 20nm process technology. The new LPDDR4 is expected to significantly accelerate the adoption of high-capacity mobile DRAM worldwide, Samsung indicated. The 12Gb LPDDR4 brings the largest capacity and highest speed available for a DRAM chip, the company said. Compared to the preceding 20nm-based 8Gb LPDDR4, the 12Gb version is more than 30% faster at 4,266Mbps, and is twice as fast as DDR4 DRAM for PCs, while consuming 20% less energy, Samsung claimed. Manufacturing productivity of the 12Gb LPDDR4 has been raised more than 50% over that of 20nm-class 8Gb LPDDR4, the company said. The 12Gb LPDDR4 enables 3GB or 6GB of mobile DRAM in a single package using two chips and four chips respectively, while being the only solution that can provide a 6GB LPDDR4 package, Samsung said. Based on the new 12Gb LPDDR4, the 6GB package can fit into the same space used for 3GB LPDDR4 packages currently available, the company indicated.
