GDDR5 memories record speed from Hynix on the way to the market

Hynix began production of serial chips Particularly fast, which can be stacked on top of each other in a three-dimensional configuration

For several years now, memoirs have been used In various video cards, when handed down their frequency increased but apart from that much has not changed. One of the limitations in the current memory configuration is limited bandwidth, which affects its share of video card performance (especially high resolutions) in computer games and graphic editing software.

Now, stands at the entrance to the configuration This is a new HBM (High-Bandwidth Memory) configuration. Starting with the Hynix memory chip maker, there will be some , But will reach a frequency of 8 GHz and provide bandwidth that is several times higher than the bandwidth we see today, depending on the amount of layers.


a few weeks ago We saw a glimpse (As it were) to the partial technical specifications of the company's next-generation cards , And we realized that the bandwidth of the memory is 4096 bit. Such bandwidth can not be achieved by the existing memory configuration, which indicates the use of the HBM configuration already in these cards, which was seen in the first quarter of 2015.

Now the question is how much this configuration will add to future video card performance, and whether it will provide significant performance additions to Will emerge from the inferiority position (as opposed to Anuidia) where it is currently involved in video cards designed for the upper market segment. Tell us what you think about the reactions.
