Samsung has just announced its next generation of DRAM memory chips. The company’s latest DRAM module is the industry’s first Graphics Double Data Rate 7 (GDDR7) memory, which offers notable upgrades over its predecessor, so here are all the details.
Samsung GDDR7 DRAM Specifications
The South Korean tech giant’s new announcement brings the latest memory technology. It offers improvements in data speeds, surpassing the 24Gbps that was showcased with last year’s DDR6 DRAM. Samsung’s new 16-gigabit GDDR7 DRAM will help the company grow in the graphics market, thanks to its advancements in integrated circuit design and stable performance at higher speeds. The brand’s GDDR7 DRAM module has set the record with a whopping 1.5TBps.
It also claims to offer a higher data speed per min of 32Gbps. As per official notes, the improvements were possible by the Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM3), which allows for 50 percent more data to be transmitted compared to the Non Return to Zero (NRZ) from previous generations within the same cycle. Despite bringing performance upgrades overall, the GDDR7 model is also 20 percent more energy efficient than the older GDDR6 module.
Yongcheol Bae, Samsung’s Executive VP of the Memory Product Team,stated that “Our GDDR7 DRAM will help elevate user experiences in areas that require outstanding graphics performance, such as workstations, PCs and game consoles, and is expected to expand into future applications such as AI, high-performance computing (HPC) and automotive vehicles. The next-generation graphics DRAM will be brought to market in line with industry demand and we plan on continuing our leadership in the space.”
