Samsung produces 16Gb GDDR6 graphic DRAM




Samsung Electronics has begun production of a 16 gigabit (Gb) GDDR6 (graphics double data rate 6) DRAM, the company announced.

The DRAM, built in a 10-nanometre process, has double the performance speed of a GDDR5 DRAM and consumes 35 percent less power.

It has 18Gbps pin speed with a data transfer rate of 72GBps.

The switch to 10-nanometre from 20-nanometre has also increased production gains by 30 percent.

Samsung said it was aimed at advanced graphics cards and systems.

The South Korean tech giant first made a 20-nanometer 8Gb GDDR5 DRAM with 8Gbps pin speed back in December 2014.

The company has now applied its touted 10-nanometre process to DRAMs for PCs, servers, mobiles, and graphics cards.

Last week, the firm began production of a 2.4Gbps per pin 8GB HBM2 DRAM.

The company, the world's largest memory chip vendor, last year overtook Intel as the largest semiconductor firm in revenue, backed by record profits.
