Micron kicks off mass production of GDDR5X memory

Micron just confirmed its GDDR5X memory entered mass production several months early than anticipated. The memory was previously scheduled for volume production by summer but Micron is already shipping it in volume for NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 1080 video card:
Particularly exciting is the GTX1080, the most advanced gaming card ever created and the first card in the world to use Micron’s GDDR5X memory. This card pumps out 9 TFLOPS with 2560 cores offering an unprecedented level of graphics performance and efficiency. Using a 256-bit memory bus, the 1080 packs 8GB of quad data rate GDDR5X at 10Gb/s cranking out 320GB/s of memory bandwidth. Jen-Hsun Huang, the CEO of NVIDIA, raved about the benefits of GDDR5X during the launch event on Friday night:

“This memory is so fast. It is so fast … G5X, the fastest GDDR memory in the world.”

Designed by our specialized team of Graphics memory engineers in Munich, GDDR5X provides NVIDIA with an unprecedented level of memory bandwidth for their new GeForce GTX1080. The bandwidth delivered by Micron’s GDDR5X memory is the result of thousands of hours of teamwork by some of the most brilliant minds in our two companies.

I first talked about Micron’s GDDR5X in September 2015 and in February of this year, provided an update that the technology was on track for mass production by summer. Today, I am happy to announce that GDDR5X, the fastest discrete memory component in the world, has already entered mass production. With gaming and virtual reality driving continuous increases in performance requirements for GPUs, it’s a critical time to deliver higher memory bandwidth and efficiency, and GDDR5X is well positioned to help drive these new efficiencies.
