The first LPDDR4 Device: Now there are three winners

Last week I blogged on how Samsung and SK Hynix had both issued LPDDR4 press releases on the same day.

I just read the transcript of tonight’s Micron earnings call (Jan 7th, 2014), and within it, Micron’s President Mark Adams is quoted as saying, “We are also the first supplier to sample low-power DDR4 to our customers and chipset partners.” (Source: http://seekingalpha.com/article/1933411-micron-technologys-ceo-discusses-f1q-2014-results-earnings-call-transcript?page=5 )

So now we have three claims:
Samsung: “…developed the industry’s first eight gigabit (Gb), low power double data rate 4 (LPDDR4), mobile DRAM…” (Source: Samsung Press Release )
SK Hynix: “…developed the world’s first 8Gb(Gigabit) LPDDR4(Low Power DDR4)…” (Source: SK Hynix Press release )
Micron: “We are also the first supplier to sample low-power DDR4 to our customers and chipset partners.” (Source: Micron Earnings Call Transcript )

Who was actually first? We may never know…
