The graphic memories that are supposed to become the new basic choice in the next generation of graphics cards can be speeded up, it turns out, to very impressive rhythms
Good news for anyone waiting impatiently for the next generation of graphics processing cores: The US Micron has announced the formal accession of its two largest competitors from Korea, and has begun mass production of next-generation GDDR6 chipsets to replace GDDR5 and GDDR5X in applications Requiring a large volume of dedicated dynamic memory. GDDR6 chips are expected to become the base for graphics cards from the mid-market and part of the high-end market already in the current generation NVIDIA, And probably also in I HAVE D, As a complementary factor to the S-HBM2 Which will be used for high end products.
Micron will initially offer chips with relatively restrained capabilities, with basic 1.35 Volt working voltage and effective 12 Gbps and 14 Gbps speeds for the graphics processing world, together with the volume of 8 Gigabit, Bit (or approximately 1 gigabytes) per package - while the industrial market and the automotive systems market will receive 12-Gbps chips at a more modest 1.25 volt.
Chips GDDR6 These "basic" features can provide significant leapfrogging in a few months, with an effective 672 Gigabit per second bandwidth with 384 bit interface and even 900 Gigabits per second on the 512 bit interface. Not bad at all, as a category, where we've gotten used to seeing 300 gigabytes per second or 400 gigabytes per second so far.
However, the promise for the near future is far greater and more impressive - we already know that Micron as well 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 Will be able to become a commercial reality down the road - and this will give us effective 960 Gigabit bandwidths per second to the 384 bit interface, and 1.28 terabytes per second (!) To the 512 bit interface. Bottleneck - not in our school.
