    Hynix Semiconductor today introduced the industry’s first 1 Gigabit GDDR5 Graphics DRAM. The industry’s first 1Gb GDDR5 from Hynix is also the fastest and highest density graphics memory available. It operates at 5Gbps bandwidth and processes up to 20 Gigabytes of data per second with a 32-bit I/O, ideal in applications with high definition video and cinematic and photo-realistic graphics content. A bandwidth of 20 Gigabytes per second offered by the Hynix 1Gb GDDR5 can process more than 20 hours of DVD quality video.

    The newly introduced GDDR5 is built on the company’s leading edge 66nanometer process technology and designed to minimize power consumption. In addition to its small form factor and power saving characteristics, Hynix’s GDDR5 features time delay adjustments, error correction and jitter control technology enabling more robust system designs.

    The fifth generation graphics memory GDDR5 improves data processing speed by more than two times than that of GDDR3, the current mainstream graphics DRAM device. With its improved speed and power characteristics, GDDR5 is projected to succeed GDDR3 and dominate the graphics DRAM market from the 2nd half of 2008.

    Hynix plans to start mass production of GDDR5 in the first half of next year to meet the increasing demand for high performance graphics DRAM.

    So.. According to Hynix gddr4 sucks, and from the lack of gddr4 I'm seeing in video cards they might be right.

    Yeah, notice no nVidia Gddr4? ATi is still using 3. I guess if you look at it the difference between 3 and 4 isn't all that great, plus 3 has been around longer. If 5 is double the speed of 3 it may be worth it for both companies to switch.

    Which they both were probably well aware of, and might be waiting to stick on their NEXT cards, whatever and whenever those emerge.

    And on that note Wile, I turned down the GT SLI idea. I think the Mrs. has a bigger plan in mind here. One Ultra now, two more later.
    I turned to her and said "I hope that's not your tactical procedure for having children."

    GDDR4 made similar promises (though not as high) and yet, now, its not really used by anyone but ATI. Kind of sad, as I was hoping that would be taking off.

    The timeframe Hynix is talking about is one single second - and one GDDR5 chip...
    :cool:

    agree with will here, but it depends on the gpu as well.

    but this would something interesting, lets see if gddr5 will really take off.
