Qimonda confirms plan to skip GDDR4

Posted on Tuesday, June 12 2007 @ 01:45:23 CEST by

Last week at Computex memory maker Qimonda reiterated its plan to jump directly to GDDR5 memory.
Taking a relatively different stance on its graphics DDR (GDDR) deployment, Qimonda reiterated that it would skip developing GDDR4 and instead directly move to GDDR5 with volume production expected in the first half of 2008, according to Robert Feurle, vice president of the graphics business unit at Qimonda.

With Qimonda leading its rivals in the introduction of GDDR5, instead of GDDR4, Feurle stressed that GDDR5 should be the next standard in the graphics memory market while GDDR4 should be a standard in niche markets only. He reiterated that Qimonda will stick to its roadmap to skip developing GDDR4.

Currently, Qimonda fabricates GDDR5 at its 12-inch fabs in the US and Germany on 75nm. Feurle noted that the present sufficiency in capacity suggested that no outsourcing is required. Regarding the progress that Qimonda has on GDDR5, he indicated that sampling has started with validation with customers to start in the first quarter of 2008. Volume production should be around the first half of 2008.
