Samsung has already started mass-producing 12Gbit chips from lpddr5 and will be doing the 12GB modules later this month, the company announced. With a throughput of 5.5 Gbit / s, the lpddr5 chips are 1.3 times as fast as the current lpddr4x working memory with its 4.2 Gbit / s.

As part of a 12GB module, the lpddr5 can handle 44GB per second via a 64-bit full bus, where 12GB-lpddr4x gets stuck at 34.1GB / s. Moreover, according to Samsung, lpddr5 is thirty percent more efficient thanks to the use of new techniques for clocking and low-power modes. The production of 16Gbit chips of lpddr5 should start next year.
