The origins of GDDR
The origins of modern graphics double data rate (GDDR) memory can be traced back to GDDR3 SDRAM. Designed by ATI Technologies, GDDR3 made its first appearance in nVidia’s GeForce FX 5700 Ultra card which debuted in 2004. Offering reduced latency and high bandwidth for GPUs, GDDR3 was followed by GDDR4, GDDR5, GDDR5X and GDDR6, with the latter slated to power a wide range of products in 2018. Supported by Micron Technology, SK Hynix and Samsung, GDDR6 SGRAM will feature a maximum data transfer rate of 16 Gbps, along with an operating voltage of 1.35V.
