Micron Introduces LPCAMM2 Based On LPDDR5X Technology

Published by

Micron officially started distributing its new memory module, LPCAMM2, on May 7, 2024. This memory module utilizes advanced LPDDR5X technology and is specifically designed for Lenovo's mobile workstation, the ThinkPad P1 Gen 7. The LPCAMM2 represents a strategic advancement in memory technology, catering primarily to high-performance computing applications. The LPCAMM2 memory, first announced in January 2024, offers a compact solution that requires 64% less space than traditional DDR5 SO-DIMM modules. This smaller footprint is achieved without compromising the memory's upgradeability, as the module design allows for future enhancements. Additionally, the LPCAMM2 module significantly reduces power consumption—by up to 58% in active mode and up to 80% in standby mode. These improvements are crucial for extending the battery life of mobile devices.

Utilizing LPDDR5X, the LPCAMM2 supports memory speeds up to 7,500MT/s, providing substantial performance enhancements over previous generations. Each module boasts a 128-bit memory bandwidth, doubling that of standard SO-DIMM modules. This increase in bandwidth has shown to improve performance in digital content creation by approximately 7% and productivity tasks by up to 15%, according to PCMark 10 benchmark tests.

Currently available through the Crucial brand, the LPCAMM2 memory comes in two capacity options: 32GB and 64GB. This variety allows users to select a memory solution that best fits their specific performance and capacity needs.

The introduction of LPCAMM2 by Micron not only emphasizes the company's commitment to innovation in memory technology but also highlights its role in enhancing the computing capabilities of modern workstations and other high-demand systems. With significant reductions in space and power consumption coupled with performance improvements, LPCAMM2 is poised to meet the increasing demands of contemporary applications, particularly in AI and machine learning environments.
