Samsung announced it will have 16Gb GDDR6 memory chips on display at CES 2018 in January. These new video card memory chips are clocked at 16GHz and operate at 1.35V. At the moment, the fastest GDDR5X memory chips on the market are clocked at 11.4GHz. With a 256-bit memory bus, this results in 512GB/s of memory bandwidth, while a 384-bit bus results in 768GB/s.
Samsung 16Gb GDDR6 Memory – The fastest and lowest-power DRAM for next generation, graphics-intensive applications. It processes images and video at 16Gbps with 64GB/s data I/O bandwidth, which is equivalent to transferring approximately 12 full-HD DVDs (5GB equivalent) per second. The new DRAM can operate at 1.35 volts, offering further advantages over today’s graphics memory that uses 1.5V at only 8Gbps.
