The Inquirer offered some sad news for anyone hoping to see GDDR6 next year as Samsung is now aiming to deliver in 2018. The specifications remain the same, internal bandwidth topping out at 16Gbps, compared to GDDR5X at 12Gbps. That will translate to a maximum of 512GBps on a 256-bit memory bus, 786GBps on a 384-bit bus. Mobile devices will also appreciate the new standard as it should use around 20% less power, good news for those who buy gaming laptops.
"SAMSUNG HAS ANNOUNCED that GDDR6 memory interface technology will be introduced in 2018, not 2017 as was previously expected."
