Samsung announces the first 16Gb GDDR6 memory with 24Gbps processing speed

Samsung Electronics announced that Samsung's first 16Gb GDDR6 (double data rate storage for sixth-generation graphics) memory with a processing speed of 24Gbps has begun to ship.

Built on Samsung's third-generation 10-nanometer (1z) process and extreme ultraviolet (EUV) technology, the new memory is designed to dramatically improve next-generation graphics cards (video graphics arrays), laptops, game consoles, and artificial intelligence-based applications and applications. Graphics performance for high-performance computing (HPC) systems.

Daniel Lee, executive vice president of Samsung Electronics' memory product planning team, said that Samsung's first 24Gbps GDDR6 is currently being sampled, and it is expected that this product can be verified on the next-generation GPU platform and bring it to the market in time.

It is reported that Samsung's 24Gbps GDDR6 uses innovative circuit design and highly advanced insulating materials (high-K metal gate) that minimize current leakage, and the speed is 30% faster than the previous 18Gbps products. When integrated into a high-end graphics card, it can transfer up to 1.1TB of data in one second, the equivalent of approximately 275 Full HD movies.

Samsung pointed out that the Samsung GDDR6 graphics card is designed to meet the JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) specifications and is compatible with all GPU designs. Samsung's new GDDR6 lineup will also feature low-power options to help extend laptop battery life, and the products will be available in 20Gbps and 16Gbps versions. It is equipped with Dynamic Voltage Switching (DVS) technology, which can adjust the operating voltage according to performance requirements. Operating at 1.1V, the energy efficiency is about 20% higher than the 1.35V GDDR6 industry standard.

Currently, the demand for video memory is increasing in PCs, laptops, game consoles, and even more graphics-heavy scenarios such as high-performance computing (HPC), autonomous driving, and electric vehicles. For these emerging areas, Samsung GDDR6 enables 4K or 8K video playback while providing resource-hungry AI accelerators to support the load .

Samsung expects that in the next few years, the proportion of high-performance graphics in the overall video memory market will achieve double-digit growth every year . With the launch of customer verification and the release of the new GPU platform within the month, Samsung plans to simultaneously promote the commercialization of 24Gbps GDDR6 memory .
