Samsung GDDR6 Graphics Memory Can Reach Up To 16Gbps Bandwidth – Launches 2018


Currently the fastest memory you can get would be HBM (1) and GDDR5X. While everyone is waiting for HMB2 memory for graphics card. Samsung is working on GDDR6. It’s expected to be released in 2018 and can do 14 to 16 Gbps.

To compare a little, your current GDDR5 memory on a Radeon RX 480 /  GeForce GTX 1070 goes is roughly 7 to 8 Gbps, and GDDR5X on a GTX 1080 can do 10 Gbps right ? Well, that is going to take massive steps forward. GDDR6 when released will start right where GDDR5X will end, at roughly 14 Gbps. The technology is expected to have been advanced to 16 Gbps by the year 2020th. This means more bandwidth (double over current bandwidth) and higher clock frequency memory. Volatges wise GDDR6 will be rated at 1.35v, which is exactly the same as GDDR5x.
