Micron has started producing faster GDDR6X memory modules with speeds up to 24 Gbit/s. The American manufacturer confirms this on its website. The units are for future video cards, presumably from Nvidia.
micron has Its web page is GDDR6X It was recently updated with new information about the new 24Gb/s GDDR6X modules. who – which Well-known Twitter user harukaze5919. The site now states that these memory sticks are in production. Each GDDR6X module will have a capacity of 16 GB, which is equivalent to 2 GB per chip. Several of these chips can then be integrated onto a video card. For example, the current GeForce RTX 3090 Ti has 12 memory sticks, with a total memory capacity of 24 GB.
Micron previously announced that it is working on GDDR6X memory chips up to 24 Gbit/s It is intended for future video cards. Currently, the company offers GDDR6X modules with speeds up to 21 Gbit / s. Micron said in April that the new, faster chips are intended for “data-hungry applications of the future.”
The 24 Gbit/s modules are expected to be used in upcoming Nvidia video cards. Micron worked closely with Nvidia to develop GDDR6X. Until now, this type of memory was used exclusively for Nvidia GPUs. When it was released in 2020, Micron came with GDDR6X modules that reached speeds of up to 19.5 Gbit/s, which were used in the GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080, among others. / s memory chips.
The first GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards are expected to be released in a few months. Nvidia will come later this year with the RTX 4090. The RTX 4080 and other lower rated cards are expected later. These video cards are expected to use existing GDDR6X memory chips at lower speeds. top model, Possible RTX 4090 Ti or Titanwill use 24 Gbit/s modules, Also writes VideoCardz.
