Samsung to release 8GB GPU memory

Post by gisabun »

"Samsung has begun mass producing 20-nanometre 8-gigabit (Gb) graphics double data rate 5 (GDDR5) dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) to meet the demand of high-quality graphics DRAM due to increasing usage of 3D games and ultra high-definition (UHD) content. The Suwon, Korea-based company said the world's first 20-nanometre 8Gb GDDR5 overcame the limitation of capacity and speed compared with its own 4Gb GDDR5 DRAM, which had a reading speed of 7Gb per second per pin.

The company's new DRAM maximum speed is 8Gb per second per pin, more than four times faster than the DDR3 DRAM widely used in current laptops in the market. Two chips on the company's new memory can process up to 64GB of graphical images per second, which is equal to processing 12 full high-definition DVDs in a mere second, Samsung stated."
