The well-known manufacturer Micron has published an article in its official blog. In which they confirm that they will bet strongly on GDDR6 memory. That is a new standard that is destined to become one of the star components of the new generation high-performance graphics cards.
The GDDR6 memory is the successor of the current GDDR5 (the GDDR5X was an improved version of the first but not a genuine generational renewal). Also, it is true that its main destination will be the GeForce GTX 2000 series graphics cards. And (probably) the new ones Radeon RX Navi of AMD the certain thing is that they will not be limited to this sector.
It is expected that the next generation of Sony and Microsoft consoles. That is provisionally known as PS5 and Xbox Two, use unified GDDR6 memory in an amount that should be at least 16 GB.
Micron will face 2018 with a strong commitment to GDDR6 memory
The in news memory would work like RAM and like VRAM. That is true by after the same approach that we have seen in the current consoles. But when increasing the speed of work and the capacity an improvement of important yield would be obtained.
Also, returning to the graphics market Micron has shown that it will maintain a high demand for high-performance graphics cards. And that GDDR6 memory will play a key role in this sector. Although we must bear in mind that both NVIDIA and AMD will continue using GDDR5 memories. And GDDR5X in its low, medium and medium-high ranges, so it will share prominence with those.
At the level of performance, this new memory promises to raise the working frequency up to 16 GHz. And as we see in the attached table will also allow a higher density thanks to the 16 Gb and 32 Gb chips. So, maintaining the voltages of GDDR5X memories.
