Qimonda skips GDDR4, moves on to GDDR5

Posted on Tuesday, March 27 2007 @ 03:10:45 CEST by

Our friends at VR Zone learned memory maker Qimonda will skip the GDDR4 memory technology to bring GDDR5 memory quicker to the market:
While GDDR3 presently holds a share of about 90 percent of the high end PC graphics market, in 2011 the mainstream memory technology in this segment will be GDDR5 - not GDDR4. Most customers will move from GDDR3 directly to GDDR5. For 2011, Mercury research expects GDDR5 to capture 90 percent of the high-end graphics DRAM market, which then will feature a volume of $1.49 billion for PC applications alone. GDDR5 now is intended to offer the missing low-power capability, along with tripling the performance of today's 800 MHz GDDR3 chips. In addition, it will offer features that enable more robust system designs. Besides being used in desktop and notebook systems, GDDR5 will be suited especially well for game consoles.
Qimonda will ship the first GDDR5 samples by the end of this year and volume production is slated for Q1 2008.
