On Friday, SK Hynix said it had started mass production of 24 GB LPDDR5X memory stacks that can be used for ultra-high-end smartphones and PCs. The company's LPDDR5X-8500 devices combine ultra-high-performance with high density, thus enabling fast systems with sufficient memory capacity. SK Hynix says such modules could be used well beyond smartphones, PCs, and even servers. SK Hynix's 24 GB LPDDR5X package features an 8500 MT/s data transfer rate and a wide 64-bit interface, thus offering a peak bandwidth of 68 GB/s in the ultra-low voltage range of 1.01 to 1.12V. From a typical PC perspective, this is comparable to bandwidth provided by a dual-channel DDR5-4800 memory subsystem (76.8 GB/s), but at considerably lower power and an orders of magnitude smaller footprint. An interesting wrinkle...
