From Data Center to End Device: AI/ML Inferencing with GDDR6

Created to support 3D gaming on consoles and PCs, GDDR packs performance that makes it an ideal solution for AI/ML inferencing. As inferencing migrates from the heart of the data center to the network edge, and ultimately to a broad range of AI-powered IoT devices, GDDR memory’s combination of high bandwidth, low latency, power efficiency and suitability for high-volume applications will be increasingly important. The latest iteration of the standard, GDDR6 memory, pushes data rates to 18 gigabits per second and device bandwidths to 72 gigabytes per second.
