Good news folks, the era of DDR5 memory is upon us, let's all celebrate! Well, sort of—you may want to buy the cheap champagne instead of the good stuff. Micron announced it is mass producing the world's first low power DDR5 DRAM (LPDDR5), which will find its way into high-end smartphones starting with Xiaomi's Mi 10. Apologies if we got you excited about DDR5 infiltrating the PC landscape—that will have to wait for another day (though it's coming). For now, LPDDR5 is bound for the mobile segment, and with comes "superior power efficiency" and faster speeds to keep pace with gains in artificial intelligence and 5G connectivity technologies. "Micron’s leadership in delivering... Read more...
A next generation Intel "Tiger Lake-U" processor submission for the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) suggests the upcoming CPU series will support both LPDDR4X and LPDDR5 memory when it arrives next year. Overall details are rather light, but according to the listing, the unidentified processor is a quad-core chip. Tiger Lake-U is the eventual successor to Intel's recently introduced Ice Lake family for thin and light laptops. it will be the second mass-produced processor line from Intel to utilize a 10-nanometer manufacturing process, so it will be an iterative bump with presumably faster clocks and improved power efficiency, and apparently LPDDR5 support.

Rambus has stepped up and revealed some preliminary specifications for the DDR5 and HBM3 memory standards. HBM3 is the successor to HBM2 memory with DDR5 being the successor to DDR4, as if the names didn’t give that fact away. These specs are still in their early stages and could change ahead of the official launch of memory using those specifications. Even though the specifications are being given out right now, it may a while before products using the specs will land. AMD will continue with HBM2 for GPUs and NVIDIA has no immediate plans to make any shifts. On to the specs, HBM3 will offer twice the performance that is coming from current HBM2 specification. The move to DDR5 will get... Read more...
