The semiconductor division of this manufacturing giant announced that it has started mass production of 512Mbit (64MB) GDDR-4 SGRAM chips boasting a massive 1.4GHz working clock in DDR mode.
The K4U52324QE-BC07 chips work at a 2.8GHz clock speed, which is astonishing and the amount of bandwidth both Nvidia and ATI can count on is mind-boggling.
If you pair a 384-bit wide G80 GPU with these chips, you will end up with around 134.4 GB/s, a third faster than the in the currently-available GeForce 8800GTX. However, even these chips won't be enough for the 8850/8900 to beat the R600 in terms of sheer memory bandwidth.
