Radeon RX 6700 and 6600, also Micron among the GDDR6 memory suppliers
Micron ready to supply chips graphics memory (VRAM) GDDR6 gives 16 Gbit e 16 Gbps to video cards AMD Radeon RX of the 6000 series based on RDNA 2 architecture, in particular the series solutions6700 e 6600.
The chips, made with the 1z production process, guarantee a bandwidth of up to 512 GB / s, although the role of the Infinity Cache should not be forgotten, a large cache integrated in RDNA 2 GPUs which, despite the bus limited to a maximum of 256 bits, acts as a “bandwidth amplifier”.
“Micron has a long history of developing advanced memory and we have worked closely with their engineering team to optimize GDDR6 for RDNA 2 architecture based video cards. offering our partners more choice and flexibility to produce projects for players “, commented Scott Herkelman, corporate and general vice president of AMD’s Graphics Business Unit.
The latest generation Radeon cards with graphics memory manufactured by Micron will be available starting from the next few weeks (we speak generically of Q4 2021). Certainly not a definitive solution to the shortage problems that are continuing to affect the GPU sector, but an extra memory option for AMD’s partners (who so far could turn to Samsung and SK Hynix) could have a positive effect on the situation. , albeit minimal.
