We are not sure if Nvidia will have support for DDR5 in its next generation, but ATI might be the first to market.
GDDR5 obviously offers better memory bandwidth and traditionally new memory is faster and cooler than the previous generation.
Sample production of GDDR5 has already started and the graphics memory chip manufacturers are playing with it and Qimonda is being one of the loudest about it.
