  1. Samsung has started mass production of what they claim is the first 2GB LPDDR3 DRAM chip for mobile applications just 10 months after mass production started on DDR2 memory. The milestone marks the first time a 2GB LPDDR3 density chip...

  2. I see no need for 2GB of RAM for phones right now or the immediate future . I mean my mum's computer is running with 2GB of DDR2 and a Phenom II X2 545 on Vista x64 perfectly fine and fast.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has 2GB of RAM already. I wonder, if that's the new 1-chip memory or the old 2-chip setup...

    2GB RAM, 128GB SSD and a fast CPU... all on a single tiny System on a Chip. Amazing.

    Can someone explain this to me? Surel'y memory isn't the limiting factor for HD playback? Isn't there a smart phone out there at the moment that supports streaming of HD video?

    We already had 2gig chips. They were the older DDR2 modules though, the new RAM talked about int this article is DDR3 at 1600

    I gather as much. But I wondered if the new memory is what ends up Galaxy Note 2...
