Samsung announces GDDR6 memory with 16 Gbps speeds

Samsung has revealed their new GDDR6 memory modules with the release of a new document that states that the company has managed to gain 36 CES 2018 Design and Innovation Awards. 

The company states that this new memory is the “fastest and lowest power DRAM”, stating that it can offer speeds of 16Gbps and operate at 1.35V. Today’s GDDR5 memory typically runs at up to 1.5V with speeds that typically max out at 8Gbps. 

Samsung lists this memory as 16Gb, which means that this memory should offer 2GB of capacity per module, which is great news for any GPU makers who want a lot of VRAM capacity with a relatively small number of VRAM modules. 

  Samsung 16Gb GDDR6 Memory – The fastest and lowest-power DRAM for next generation, graphics-intensive applications. It processes images and video at 16Gbps with 64GB/s data I/O bandwidth, which is equivalent to transferring approximately 12 full-HD DVDs (5GB equivalent) per second. The new DRAM can operate at 1.35 volts, offering further advantages over today’s graphics memory that uses 1.5V at only 8Gbps.

It is likely that we will see more of this memory at CES 2018, with the potential to see this new memory type in a new product later in 2018. At this time it is unknown whether or not we will see GDDR6 memory in next-generation GPUs.
