In a new blog post, Micron reveals it's NVIDIA's launch partner for the GeForce RTX series. The firm supplies 8GB GDDR6 memory chips for NVIDIA's new Turing GPUs:
The GDDR6 execution and timeline of perfectly orchestrated development, beginning with the GDDR6 announcement in October 2017; ecosystem enablement in January 2018, to the mass production readiness in June 2018, came to glorious light this past week with the launch of the new generation of graphics—the GeForce RTX™ 20-series, the world’s first consumer GPUs to feature real world ray tracing along with high speed GDDR6 memory.

"It has been a great journey to work with Micron across several generations of graphics solutions," stated Justin Walker, director of GeForce desktop at NVIDIA. "Early efforts with GDDR5 and GDDR5X helped to strengthen the relationship and build a highly collaborative effort between NVIDIA and Micron to deliver GDDR6 in lock step."

"From the Micron perspective, we see markets and applications adopting the capability and value which NVIDIA and Micron have created leading to the adoption and deployment beyond graphics," replied Ralf Ebert, Director of Graphics segment for Micron compute and networking business unit. "The capability of our joint effort to bring to market the next generation gaming solutions has created a demand. When gamers see what the new GeForce RTX™ GPUs will do for gaming, there will be many astounded users!"
