Future video cards are bound to get faster memory as Samsung has cooked up new GDDR6 memory chips capable of hitting a bandwidth of up to 24Gbps. VideoCardz reports Samsung has the 20Gbps (K4ZAF325BC-SC20) and 24Gbps (K4ZAF325BC-SC24), both are memory chips with a capacity of 2GB per chip.
The 20Gbps and 24Gbps modules could be used by next-gen GPUs, such as AMD RDNA3-based, but also mid-range/mobile NVIDIA Lovelace processors. The 24Gbps memory uses the same “180FGBA” package as K4ZAF325BM-HC16 modules featured on, for instance, the RX 6900 XT.
Most of AMD's current RDNA2 video cards use Samsung GDDR6 with a bandwidth of 16Gbps, the Radeon RX 6900 XT LC being an exception as that version uses 18.5Gbps GDDR6. Some of NVIDIA's RTX 30 series cards use 19.5Gbps GDDR6 and it's believed the firm will introduce the first video card with 20Gbps+ memory in January 2022.
