Samsung Now Producing 16Gbit GDDR6 for Upcoming GPUs

Samsung today announced that it has started mass producing the industry’s first 16-gigabit Graphics Double Data Rate 6 (GDDR6) RAM which will be used for next-generation graphics cards as well as automotive, network, and artificial intelligence systems. It was only a matter of time before Samsung announced this as the company confirmed when it unveiled the 8-gigabit DDR4 RAM chips last month that its 16-gigabit GDDR6 chips will be launched soon. The chips are built on Samsung’s advanced 10-nanometer process and come in a 16Gb density which is double that of Samsung’s 20-nm 8Gb GDDR5 RAM. The new chip performs at 18-gigabits-per-second pin speed with data transfers of 72GBps, that’s a two-fold increase over its predecessor.The GDDR6 RAM is also power efficient courtesy of its low-power circuit design. It operates at 1.35V which lowers energy consumption approximately 35 percent over its predecessor. Samsung also touts a 30 percent manufacturing productivity gain compared to the 20-nm
