For years now GPU makers have been using GDDR5 memory as standard to work along with their respective graphics processors, but that might change this year. Samsung, which is a prominent memory maker in the world has commenced mass production of its GDDR6 memory chips. The new DRAM standard is based on the company’s 10nm technology and is available in 16GB which is double to that of the company’s 20-nanometer 8Gb GDDR5 memory. Samsung claims that with a 18Gbps pin speed, the new chips can hit a speed of 72GBps. What’s more, this new DRAM solution will run more efficiently as it requires just 1.35V. In contrast, GDDR5 currently provides pin speed of 9Gbps at 1.55V.
