Micron have officially announced that several GDDR6 lines are in full production, with several more still sampling. Currently the memory comes in 8Gb BGA packages but it is possible to increase the size of a single module to 32Gb which could offer a glimpse into the size of future GPUs onboard RAM. The memory will operate between 1.25-1.35V with transfer speeds currently topping out at 14 Gb/s offering roughly twice the transfer rate of GDDR5 as well as dropping the power required from 1.35-1.5V. Drop by Micron for a look at their brochure and product catalogue for a more detailed breakdown.
Correction – BOISE, Idaho, June 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In a release issued under the same headline earlier today by Micron Technology, Inc.(Nasdaq:MU), please note that in the first and second paragraph of the release the correct casing is Gb, not GB as previously stated.
"Micron Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:MU) today announced volume production on its 8GB GDDR6 memory. Built on experience and execution for several generations of GDDR memory, GDDR6 – Micron’s fastest and most powerful graphics memory designed in Micron’s Munich Development Center – is optimized for a variety of applications that require high performance memory, including artificial intelligence (AI), networking, automotive and graphics processing units (GPUs).
