Samsung has announced 16Gb GDDR6 memory and will collaborate with Nvidia for Quadro RTX graphics cards, says Jim Elliot, Corporate Senior Vice President at Samsung Semiconductor.
It’s a tremendous privilege to have been selected by NVIDIA to launch Samsung’s 16Gb GDDR6, and to have enjoyed the full confidence of their design team in making our key contribution to the NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPUs
The new Nvidia’s Quadro RTX graphics cards will be available from October, 2018. The collaboration between Samsung and Nvidia will take graphics solution to next level. Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), Computer aided design CAD and many other fields will advance rapidly.
Samsung‘s 16-gigabit GDDR6 will potentially offer double the capacity in terms of performance to its old 20-nanometer based architecture 8Gb GDDR5 memory.
Additionally, the new Samsung 16Gb GDDR6 will consume 35 percent less power than to its GDDR5 graphics solution.
Regardless of its lowered power consumption than 8Gb GDDR5, Samsung 16Gb GDDR6 will boost around 75 percent increase in performance. Comparatively, the new graphics solution will have data transfers of 56 gigabytes per second (GB/s) with 14-gigabits per second (Gbps) pin speed to 8Gbps pin speed of 8Gb GDDR5.
Bob Pette, Vice President, Professional Visualization at NVIDIA said:
Our new Quadro RTX professional GPUs are the industry’s first to integrate Samsung’s high-speed GDDR6 memory technology
Samsung and Nvidia collaboration will take the next generation of technology to new heights. We will surely see a significant steep advancement in Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Enhanced processing and many more.
