Nvidia will be intending to launch customer versions of the Volta GPU architecture in early 2018 which will sport the all new GDDR6 memory standard. It will replace GDDR5 standard as well as the GDDR5X, which will give better performance in demanding games.
NVIDIA Volta GPUs Will Feature High-Performance GDDR6 Memory
Leading vRAM memory producers, SK Hynix, has just announced its new GDDR6 memory standard. Well, the development of GDDR6 memory is made in collaboration with Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC).
The company claimed that GDDR6 will be twice as fast as GDDR5. GDDR5 standard is now used widely by GPUs today. GDDR6 will also consume 10% lesser operating voltage compared to current GDDR5 standard.
Well, Nvidia will be intending to launch customer versions of the Volta GPU architecture in early 2018 which will sport the all new GDDR6 memory standard. Here’s what the press release says:
“SK Hynix Inc. (or ‘the Company’, www.skhynix.com) today introduced the world’s fastest 2Znm 8Gb(Gigabit) GDDR6(Graphics DDR6) DRAM. The product operates with an I/O data rate of 16Gbps (Gigabits per second) per pin, which is the industry’s fastest.”
“With a forthcoming high-end graphics card of 384-bit I/Os, this DRAM processes up to 768GB(Gigabytes) of graphics data per second. SK Hynix has been planning to mass produce the product for a client to release high-end graphics card by early 2018 equipped with high-performance GDDR6 DRAMs.”
The new GDDR6 memory chips powering GPUs based on NVIDIA’s upcoming architecture will replace GDDR5 standard as well as the GDDR5X, which will give better performance in demanding games. So, it is going to be the good news for gamers who wants to play upcoming games in 4k graphics.
