Samsung, here are 20 and 24 Gbps GDDR6 memories for next-gen video cards

Samsung started the phase of sampling (sampling) of GDDR6 memory modules with a density of 16 Gbit (2 GB) and above all a bandwidth Of 20 Gbps (K4ZAF325BC-SC20) and 24 Gbps (K4ZAF325BC-SC24). The company has not made an official announcement, but has included these chips in its product catalog on your website.

At the moment, no video card uses similar GDDR6 modules: thanks to Infinity Cache, the Radeon RX 6000s are combined with memory up to 16 Gbps (except the Radeon RX 6900 XT LC which uses 18 Gbps chips), while NVIDIA adopts GDDR6X solutions up to 19.5 Gbit/s.

Samsung’s new 20 and 24 Gbps chips could then find space on future products, such as AMD’s RDNA 3 GPUs or the new generation of GeForce “Ada Lovelace” planned for the second semester. We must not rule out their use in the second generation of Intel Arc “Battlemage” GPUs expected in 2023. Indeed, the new chips will allow future GPUs to reach new levels of memory bandwidth, a fundamental parameter to put all the power of graphics chips.

Until we find out where we’ll see these chips, it looks like we won’t have to wait that long to see graphics memory tuned to over 20 Gbps on a video card: the rumored RTX 3090 Ti, whose announcement is expected at CES 2022 in Las Vegas on January 4 in preparation for the actual debut on January 27, it is expected to boast 21 Gbps GDDR6X (Micron) memory.
