Going Beyond GPUs with GDDR6

Going Beyond GPUs with GDDR6

Supported by Micron Technology, SK Hynix and Samsung, GDDR6 SGRAM will feature a maximum data transfer rate of 16 Gbps, along with an operating voltage of 1.35V. GDDR6 offers higher densities compared to previous-generation graphics memory. In addition, GDDR6 doubles the speed (12–16 Gb/s) of GDDR5 and provides more than 5X the 3.2 Gb/s speed of DDR4. Although initially targeted at game consoles and PC graphics, the latest iteration of GDDR is expected to be deployed across multiple verticals, with Micron specifically highlighting the data center and automotive sector.
