SK Hynix, the South Korean memory-chip maker, has recently begun shipping its latest mobile chips to Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo. This development is a positive indication of the recovery in the global demand for memory chips.
The advanced 16-gigabyte low-power-double-data-rate 5 turbo chips produced by SK Hynix will be integrated into Vivo’s newest smartphone models, namely the X100 and X100 Pro.
Notably, SK Hynix’s LPDDR5T product, introduced in January, stands out as the fastest memory chip available for processing data in smartphones and tablets.
With its ultra-low electric power consumption, the new 16-gigabyte package efficiently handles data, allowing for the processing of as much as 15 full high-definition movies within just one second.
In the previous quarter (July-September), SK Hynix’s dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chip business experienced a turnaround after two quarters of decline. This positive outcome can be attributed to strong sales of premium products like high-bandwidth-memory3 and double data rate5 chips, specifically designed for artificial intelligence applications and high-end mobile devices.
SK Hynix remains optimistic about the future performance of its DRAM business. They anticipate further improvements in the coming quarters.
