SK hynix had started volume shipments of its LPDDR5T-9600 memory for high-end smartphones, the company announced this week. So far, the company's LPDDR6 'Turbo' memory with a 9600 MT/s data transfer speed has been certified to work with two range-topping mobile application processors from Qualcomm and MediaTek. SK hynix's LPDDR5T-9600 memory is available in 16 GB packages with a VDD voltage range of 1.01V to 1.12V and a VDDQ of 0.5v. Notably, this VDD range is just slightly over the LPDDR5X specfication (1.00V to 1.1V), which shouldn't be a serious problem, but likely warrants some extra compatibility testing with existing chips. Smartphone and SoC manufacturers have a great incentive to validate SK hynix's LPDDR5T-9600 and Micron's LPDDR5X-9600 memory as these modules offer a 76.8 GB/s peak...
