Samsung to produce faster graphics memory next year

Samsung Electronics next year plans to begin mass production of a new type of graphics memory that both consumes less power and is significantly faster than existing chips.

Called GDDR (Graphics Double Data Rate) 5, the new chips can transfer data at speeds up to 6Gbps, compared to transfer speeds of 3.2Gbps offered by GDDR 4 chips, currently the fastest graphics memory available. The difference is even greater when compared to GDDR 3, which is the most commonly used graphics memory and offers transfer speeds of 1.6Gbps.
