Micron announces that their GDDR6 memory will soon be available in Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards

Micron has announced that AMD is now shipping RX 6000 series graphics cards that contain their 16Gb/16Gbps GDDR6 memory modules. In other words, AMD has just gained a new DRAM supplier for its RX 6000 series graphics cards. 

Graphics cards starting with AMD's RX 6600 and RX 6700 series models will soon be available with Micron GDDR6 memory modules, a change that could result in increased availability for AMD's RX 6000 series graphics cards in Q4 2021. 

By having Micron as a new supplier, AMD has gained access to more GDDR6 DRAM. This should help AMD to create and ship more RX 6000 series graphics cards this quarter. AMD's Scott Herkelman has stated that they are working closely with Micron and that these efforts will be "giving our board partners more choice and flexibility to produce additional (GPU) designs for gamers."

Below is Micron's Press Release regarding AMD's use of their GDDR6 DRAM on future Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards.
