Micron Now Has SKUs For GDDR6 RAM

Posted by at 1:16 pm on June 26, 2018

Micron has announced it has commenced mass production of its 8Gb GDDR6 memory chips. The networking, automotive, and graphics card industries are on the path to adopt the new GDDR6 memory standard in their next-generation products, and Micron is keen to provide the necessary ingredients to fuel the transition.

Although there is an increasing demand for GDDR6 in general, the graphics card industry is where the gold really lies. Micron has been working hand-in-hand with its ecosystem partners to help accelerate the delivery of GDDR6 products to its customers.

Designed entirely at the company’s Munich-based development center, Micron’s GDDR6 memory solutions promise a substantial performance improvement over even the fastest current GDDR5 offerings. Initially, Micron aims to release its 8Gb GDDR6 memory chips in 12Gbps and 14Gbps flavors for the graphics card sector with plans to introduce faster 16Gbps GDDR6 memory chips in the not-so-distant future. With low power consumption being one of GDDR6’s most noteworthy attributes, Micron’s upcoming 8Gb 12Gbps and 14Gbps GDDR6 memory chips both operate at 1.35V as opposed to GDDR5’s 1.5V.

In terms of density, the GDDR6 specification states a maximum capacity of 32Gb – so there is a fair amount of room to grow. Micron has already set aside the part numbers for its 16Gb memory chips. Micron has been experimenting with the data rate too.

Micron isn’t just focus its vast GDDR6 portfolio on graphics card manufacturers. The company also offers its specially-tailored 8Gb GDDR6 memory chips at 10Gbps and 12Gbps speeds to its networking and automotive customers. These GDDR6 chips sacrifice speed in favor of a lower operating voltage of 1.25V.
