SK hynix has started supplying its customers with 16 gigabyte (GB) packages of Low Power Double Data Rate 5 Turbo (LPDDR5T).

The outfit claims LPDDR5T is the fastest mobile DRAM available and can transfer 9.6 gigabits per second (Gbps).

LPDDR5T is a newly developed version by SK hynix, and an upgraded product of the 7th generation (5X), before the development of the 8th generation LPDDR6.

Since the successful development of its LPDDR5T in January, SK hynix has been preparing to commercialise the product by conducting performance verification with global mobile application processor manufacturers.

SK hynix explained that LPDDR5T is the optimal memory to maximise the performance of smartphones, with the highest speed ever achieved. The company also emphasised that it would continue to expand the application range of this product and lead the generation shift in the mobile DRAM sector.

The LPDDR5T 16 GB package operates in the ultra-low voltage range of 1.01 to 1.12V, which was set by the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC). It can process 77 GB of data per second, equivalent to transferring 15 full high-definition (FHD) movies in one second.

The company recently started shipping its product to a global smartphone manufacturer, Vivo. It also announced that its latest smartphones, X100 and X100 Pro, will be equipped with SK hynix’s up-to-date memory packages.

These devices will be packed with MediaTek’s newest flagship mobile AP ‘Dimensity 9300’. In August, SK hynix confirmed that it has completed the performance verification for MediaTek’s next-generation mobile APs.

SK Hynix DRAM head Myoungsoo Park said smartphones were essential devices for implementing On-Device AI3 technology as the AI era started.

 “There is a growing demand for high-performing, high-capacity mobile DRAMs in the market. We will continue to lead the premium DRAM market based on our technological leadership in AI memories while staying in tune with market demands,” Park said.
