The new mobile memory achieves memory bandwidth of 12.8 GB/sec or 1600 MB/sec per pin, which makes it about 50 per cent faster than the current LPDDR2 memory.

“Samsung is helping to accelerate growth of the mobile memory market,” said Samsung Executive VP of Memory Sales & Marketing Wanhoon Hong. “With this rapid introduction of 2 GB LPDDR3, we are moving very assertively to expand our global leadership on the premium side of our extensive memory portfolio.”
