The graphic memories that should become the new basic choice in the next generation of video cards can be made fast, it turns out - to particularly impressive rhythms
Good news for all those eagerly awaiting the next generation of graphics processing cores: US Micron has officially joined its major competitor duo from Korea and has started mass and commercial production of GDDR6 technology - the next generation to replace GDDR5 and GDDR5X Who need a large volume of dedicated dynamic memory. GDDR6 chips are expected to become the basis for the middle-market and some high-end video cards in the current generation of NVIDIA, And probably also in AMD, As a complementary factor to the S-HBM2 Which will be used for high end products.
Micron will initially offer relatively modest chipset capabilities, with basic 1.35 volts working voltage and effective 12 gigabits per second and 14 gigabits per second for the graphics processing world, along with 8 gigabytes - Bit (or 1 gigabytes per value) per chassis - while at the same time the industrial and automotive systems market will receive 12 gigabits per second and more modest 1.25 volts.
Chips GDDR6 These "basics" will be able to deliver a significant leap in capabilities in a few months, with effective 672 GB bandwidth per second when working with the 384 Bit interface - and even touching 900 GB per second at the 512 Bit interface. Not bad at all in the category where we have become accustomed to seeing numeric data of 300 GB per second or 400 GB per second so far.
However, the promise of the near future is much bigger and even more impressive - we already know that Micron and I do סמסונג GDDR6 chips with a dual volume of 16 gigabytes per gigabyte (approximately 2 GB), which can give us graphics cards with up to 32 GB of dedicated memory, and even increased the performance of the micron and presented results The fast Of new generation chips to a record 20 gigabits per second.
It may take some time, but after the first real proof it can be assumed that these high speeds to the chipsGDDR6 Can become a commercial reality down the road - and this will already give us effective 960 gigabytes per second to the 384 bit interface, and 1.28 terabytes per second (!) To the 512 bit interface. Bottleneck - Not at our school.
