Asus ROG Phone 5 gets 18 GB LPDDR5

The DDR5 memory standard will be launched towards the end of 2021 for desktops, with Intel being the first to launch the Alder Lake processor family. Already at the beginning of the year, the mobile equivalent LPDDR5 was launched sharply in the Samsung Galaxy S21 series, among other things, of which the top model S21 Pro is available for purchase with no less than 16 GB. Now South Korean SK Hynix raises the bar.


A press release states that SK Hynix has begun large-scale production of an LPDDR5 memory capsule with a sky-high capacity of 18 GB (144 Gb). At the same time, the speed rises to an efficient clock frequency of 6,400 MHz (6,400 Mbps), just over 16 percent over existing 5,500 MHz solutions. The new memory from SK Hynix provides a theoretical bandwidth of 51.2 GB / s over a 64-bit memory bus.

The first to use the new memory capsule will be Asus with its game-oriented phone ROG Phone 5, which combines this with the system circuit Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. Asus ROG Phone 5 will be launched on Wednesday on March 10 at 12:00 Swedish time.
