Micron confirms GDDR5X is sampling to clients

Micron confirmed to HotHardware that it started sampling GDDR5X memory chips to clients. This is one of the last steps to making the technology available and later this year we'll see the first video cards sporting this new type of memory.

GDDR5X will not be as fast as HBM2 but promises to offer a much better price/performance ratio, making it better suited for applications where price is a concern. Transitioning to GDDR5X promises to be a simple process and this new standard promises a significant bandwidth increase versus today's GDDR5 memory.
Why does any of this matter? GDDR5X memory pushes data rates to 10-14Gb/s. That's up to double the memory bandwidth of today's GDDR5 devices, and the best part for manufacturers is that it's not a completely new design—the memory architecture is largely the same, which will make transitioning to GDDR5X an easy and cost-effective affair.
