Micron’s next-generation high-performance GDDR6 memory is now under mass production. The Micron GDDR6 memory is said to be adopted in networking, automotive and graphics solutions. Micron also reports its 8Gb GDDR6 memory will deliver significant performance improvements over the current-generation GDDR5 memory.
GDDR6 can deliver up to 64GB/s in one package delivery significant performance and memory increase over GDDR5. GDDR6 will be bringing this single-chip performance using the industry-standard BGA packaging. With this, GDDR6 memory enables advanced performance with lower power consumption in a number of segments including AI, Graphics, Networking and Automotive.
Artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning are memory intensive applications that require more bandwidth from memory solutions. GDDR6 delivers the higher bandwidth required to accelerate AI in applications like computer vision, autonomous driving and the many other applications that require this higher bandwidth.
Enabling significant performance improvements for today's top GPUs, GDDR6 delivers enhanced graphics memory speeds to enable higher application bandwidth. Micron GDDR6 will be a core enabling technology of advanced GPU applications, including acceleration, 4K video and improved rendering, VR/AR and crypto mining applications.
Advanced networking technologies require access to high speed/high bandwidth memory. GDDR6-powered smart Network Interface Cards (NIC) enable significant improvements in network bandwidth. Additionally, high bandwidth RAID controllers featuring GDDR6 memory deliver dramatic enhancements to data access and protection.
As auto manufacturers push for autonomous vehicles, high-performance memory is required to process the vast amounts of real-time data required to make this technology a reality. Micron GDDR6 delivers 448 GB/s auto qualified memory solutions, that deliver more than double the bandwidth of LPDDR5 automotive memory solutions.
