Average DRAM in tablets to rise in 2011-report

The amount of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) in media tablets will jump 147 percent in 2011 to an average of 676 megabytes (MB), according to a new research.
 
The IHS iSuppli research said with tablets handling more data-intensive applications such as video, the average DRAM content in these platforms during 2011 will be about two-and-a-half times more than last year’s 274MB.
 
Tablet DRAM density will expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 68% from 2010 to 2015, as shown in the attached figure.
 
Despite the substantial increase this year of DRAM content in tablets, growth could have been even greater if Apple’s recently released iPad 2 turned out to have the full 1GB of DRAM—similar to the iPad’s competitors, which prior assumptions seemed to indicate—instead of just 512MB. In comparison, the Xoom by Motorola, the TouchPad by Hewlett-Packard and the BlackBerry Playbook by Research In Motion—tablet devices competing with the iPad—each has 1GB of DRAM.
