Samsung to begin mass production


Samsung Electronics
has announced that it will begin mass production of a new type of graphics memory that uses less power and is significantly faster. Graphics Double Data Rate 5 chips can transfer data at speeds up to 6G bps. Current GDDR 4 chips can only manage 3.2G bps.

In a press release, Samsung said that the faster transfer speeds mean GDDR5 is able to move more data, up to 24G bytes per second. It will mean more realistic and detailed graphics images in games and other applications.

The chips will only use 1.5 volts, making them about 20 percent more efficient than GDDR 3 chips.Mass production is expected in the first half of next year.
