Samsung starts mass prolongation of ‘industry’s first’ 16Gb GDDR6 memory

CHIP COBBLER SAMSUNG has, as promised, kicked off mass prolongation of what it’s claiming to be a “industry’s first” 16-gigabit (Gb) Graphics Double Data Rate 6 (GDDR6) memory.

Aimed during providing gaming devices, graphics cards and automotive, network and synthetic comprehension systems (that’s everything, then) with modernized graphics processing, a new graphics chip is built on Samsung’s 10nm category routine tech.

The uninformed GDDR6 memory also comes in a 16Gb density, that doubles that of a company’s prior 20nm 8Gb GDDR5 memory, Samsung said, behaving during an 18Gbps pin speed with information transfers of 72GBps, a some-more than two-fold boost over a 8Gb GDDR5 chip which touted a 8Gbps pin speed.

“Beginning with this early prolongation of a industry’s initial 16Gb GDDR6, we will offer a extensive graphics DRAM line-up, with a top opening and densities, in a really timely manner,” declared Samsung Electronics’ comparison VP of Memory Product Planning and Application Engineering, Jinman Han.

“By introducing next-generation GDDR6 products, we will strengthen a participation in a gaming and graphics label markets and accommodate a flourishing need for modernized graphics memory in automotive and network systems.”

The new GDDR6 chip uses a low-power circuit design, definition it can work during 1.35V to reduce appetite expenditure approximately 35 per cent over a widely used GDDR5 during 1.55V. And since of a 10nm-class design, a 16Gb GDDR6 is also pronounced to move a 30 per cent benefit in prolongation capability over a 20nm 8Gb GDDR5 offering. 

Samsung pronounced starting evident prolongation of a GDDR6 will play “a vicious role” in early launches of next-generation graphics cards and systems.

“With all of a improvements in density, opening and appetite efficiency, a 16Gb GDDR6 will be widely used in fast flourishing fields such as 8K Ultra HD video processing, practical reality, protracted existence and synthetic intelligence,” a organisation added.

The tech hulk didn’t exhibit any transparent dates of when we are expected to see a cards in action, though it did contend it expects to accelerate expansion of a reward memory marketplace “over a subsequent several years. µ
