AMD to rely on Samsung to fill GDDR5 supply gap

Posted on Wednesday, April 08 2009 @ 16:54:14 CEST by

DigiTimes writes AMD is going to use GDDR5 memory from Samsung to fill the supply gap caused by the insolvency of German memory maker Qimonda:
AMD is planning to adopt Samsung Electronics' GDDR5 memory to fill in the supply gap caused by Qimonda's bankruptcy in April, according to a Chinese-language HKEPC report citing the company.

Since most of AMD's high-end graphics card memory chips were sourced from Qimonda, the bankruptcy of Qimonda created concern to graphics card makers, added the report.
Yesterday X-bit Labs raised doubts about whether Samsung is capable of producing GDDR5 in noticeable quantities, but AMD claims its Radeon HD 4800 series cards with GDDR5 memory aren't in trouble.
