AMD Trying to promote the use of hybrid memory: both GDDR And they DDR On computer systems. Think it will do the job?
With the integration of a graphics core in addition to the processing core of the processor,APU

. Performance tests performed on these processors also prove it: if the graphics core of the CPU is the only one present (i.e., there is no video card system with dedicated graphics memory), greater memory speed will inevitably yield better performance. The maximum speed they were able to reach with Memories DDR3
She's meanwhile 3
GHz, compared with6.4
GHz: The frequency at which they can work Memories GDDR5
Combine the two.
According to John Gustafson, chief graphics architect atAMD
, They have long sought to expand the bandwidth between the processor and the memory in the system. "Everyone wants to use ultra-fast memory combined with cheap memory, just like we do at all memory levels. This is a new level of memory. Long ago in high-performance computing we always wanted to have static memory close to processors and volatile memory away from them and we return to this state." Said Mr. Gustafson to the news site Theinquerre.net

What Gustafson refers to is the migration of זיכרון SRAM
(Static - even when there is no electricity the memory will store the data) From the high-performance computing field to the home computer. זיכרון
It has always been preferred in these areas due to its performance but limited in volume by price. According to him, the demand from game consumers lowered the price to a reasonable level, to the extent that it is used in large volumes in mass consoles such as the -PS4

"They are still more expensive, but not insanely. For all apps that depend on memory and bandwidth, if you double the memory speed five times, they will run at least four times faster than now and there are a lot of people willing to pay for it," John Gustafson added. His reference to the subject.
He does not see Memories
Higher than our lives in the near future, what he does suggest is hierarchy. First it will be the CPU זיכרון
His treasure was second, then third, then זיכרון GDDR
And when all the others are finished, the processor will turn to memory DDR
Slower but larger volume. It's not such a far-fetched dream, considering that video cards from the highest gaming market can hold up to six gigabytes of video זיכרון
Graphics, not to mention general computing cards that can hold even eight.
