Micron Technology, a chip-maker also responsible for the brand Crucial, has announced that its latest form of RAM is now shipping at full volume. This new mobile-device component can be thought of as the LPDDR4X version of the latest, cutting-edge 1α DRAM made by the company.
Accordingly, Micron is pitching this product at OEMs looking to make the mid- and even bottom-tier smartphones of the immediate future. It is based on Micron's latest, fourth-gen 10nm node for DRAM, and as such, the manufacturer touts it as having a memory density increased by 40% compared to its third-gen 1z counterpart.
Nevertheless, the new LPDDR4X chips are also rated for up to 20% savings in terms of power use compared to their predecessors. Micron is releasing them in sizes of 2GB to 8GB, and claims that Lenovo for one has already taken it up for its next-gen affordable smartphones. Therefore, this supposedly enhanced RAM might be seen in handsets from this brand sometime soon, not to mention those from its subsidiary Motorola.
