The Nvidia GPU Know-how Convention may need come and gone with none point out of subsequent technology graphics playing cards, however one reminiscence provider has confirmed it’s going to make the most of GDDR6 video reminiscence.
SK Hynix confirmed with Avid gamers Nexus that its GDDR6 reminiscence will probably be prepared for mass manufacturing in three months to be used in a number of upcoming Nvidia merchandise. If true, this is able to put the rumored GeForce 11 sequence launch proper round July – however extra probably later in 2018.
We’re taking the purported launch window with nice skepticism as the unique report goes by a hypothesis. SK Hynix being prepared to produce ample VRAM chips doesn’t essentially dictate when Nvidia’s subsequent graphics playing cards will launch. If something, we would have the ability to say they gained’t launch anytime prior to July with this info.
The prices and advantages of GDDR6
This information does probably give us a clearer concept of the capabilities of the upcoming Nvidia GTX 1180 and 1170. Primarily based on early specs GDDR6 reminiscence ought to ship double the pace of GDDR5 utilized in current-gen graphics playing cards just like the Nvidia GTX 1080, nevertheless, at the price of requiring 1.35v to function and being 20% dearer to provide.
What’s extra, GDDR6 chips may are available in denser 2GB capacities, so we may properly see graphics playing cards with as much as 16GB of video RAM this yr. Beforehand, the best quantity of video reminiscence we noticed on a single card was 12GB with the Nvidia Titan Xp.
The considerably official information from the reminiscence maker additionally may finish the controversy of whether or not the forthcoming Nvidia Turing GPUs will come geared up with H2MB reminiscence as we’ve seen on a number of Nvidia Volta playing cards.
