Samsung has beaten its rivals, SK Hynix and Micron, to become the first company to begin mass producing GDDR6 memory chips - the extremely fast graphics memory that will power the next generation of graphics cards.
Samsung is right where it thought it would be when it announced in 2016 that it was aiming to deliver GDDR6 memory in 2018. Apart from gaming, this kind of memory can serve in fields such as automotive, artificial intelligence systems, and networks.
"By introducing next-generation GDDR6 products, we will strengthen our presence in the gaming and graphics card markets and accommodate the growing need for advanced graphics memory in automotive and network systems", Samsung Electronics' senior vice president of Memory Product Planning and Application Engineering, Jinman Han, said. Further, the brand claims the 16GB GDDR6 can be easily used in the 8K Ultra HD video processing, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence.
The new graphics memory is built on a 10nm-class manufacturing process, emphasis on "class". These chips will have a blistering fast 18Gbps pin speed (up from an initial 16Gbps) and will reach transfer rates of 72Gbps (up from an initial 64Gbps), at a density of 16Gb.
KitGuru Says: It looks like we may see the first GDDR6 graphics cards at some point this year.
These chips, which are aimed at supercomputers and advanced graphics systems, feature a 2.4 Gbps pin speed at 1.2V, nearly double the speed of the first generation HBM2.
What is likely to help accelerate future AI-driven devices is that the fresh GDDR6 memory also comes in a 16GB density, which doubles the power of Samsung's previous 20nm 8GB GDDR5 memory. More importantly to gamers, GDDR5 delivers a more than two-fold increase in speed over 8Gb GDDR5 RAM, with speeds hitting up to 72 gigabytes per second (GB/s). And because of its 10nm-class design, the 16Gb GDDR6 is also said to bring a 30 per cent gain in manufacturing productivity over the 20nm 8Gb GDDR5 offering.
