Samsung unveils world’s first LPDDR5 DRAM memory which comes at a whopping 8Gigs and is the setting stone for the next 5G revolution which promises ultra-fast data speeds. This new class 10nm LPDDR5 DRAM is highly capable of data speeds up to 6,400 megabits per second which is about 1.5 times faster than current generation premium memory chips. Which means transferring a file of size 51GB within a second, which is absolutely insane.
Apart from that, this new memory chip will be made available in two configuration one with 1.1 Volts with 6,000 Mbps speeds and another one with 1.05 Volts at speeds up to 5,500 Mbps.

It is highly configured to avoid any overwrites with cells which contain 0 value.
