Next graphics memory is GDDR6 and will be launch in 2018. Transfer rates will be between 12GB/s and 16GB/s per channel. Once again the Micron’s graphics team had a record-breaking with their memory like GDDR5 and 12GB/s, the highest-performance mass production GDDR memory until now.
Mobile World Congress America focused discussions in automotive applications. At Linley Processor conference, GDDR6 was looked at for networking applications. AMD technical engineers also working on the GDDR6 memory controller, but AMD will still be sticking with HBM technology in high-end graphics cards.
AMD Working On GDDR6 Memory Technology
Samsung, Micron, and SK Hynix all have roadmaps that show their GPU SKUs rolling out in early 2018. Compared to current generation GDDR5 DRAM, now are looking at both, increased bandwidth and transfer speeds (8Gbps vs 16 Gbps) at lower power consumption (1.5V vs 1.35V).We know that GDDR5 can reach up to 9 Gbps as NVIDIA launched their GTX 1060 in faster memory variants. That’s the practical limit of where the memory architecture can go, for now.
Anyone remember first good ram DDR2, launched in 2003 that allows higher bus speed and requires lower power by running the internal clock at half the speed of the data bus. The highest speed is 533.33 MHz operating voltage 1.8V and data rate 1066.6 MT/s. Look now this GDDR6 memory we just can say WOW.
Every year companies like Samsung, Micron and SK Hynix breaks the limit, what do you think what we can expect for next 15 years? Maybe GDDR18 that have transfer rate 500GB/s and speed about 20GHz per memory chip. Does anyone try to launch Grand Theft Auto 5 on DDR2? It is impossible because old architecture and new games can’t work together. So with all these new architectures, we can also expect new and better games.
When we say games, anyone tries the latest tool named “Game Key Generator”? With this tool, you can play a lot of paid games without paying. Generate your free game code and test your GDDR graphics memory. More info here: http://www.pcbunker.com/game-key-generator-free-paid-games/
