    Hynix Semiconductor Inc., today announced the industry’s first 2 Gb (Gigabit) GDDR5 called H5GQ2H24MFR-R2C using its leading-edge 40nm class process technology.

    The newly developed GDDR5 is the fastest and highest density graphics memory available in the market. It operates at 7 Gbps (Gigabit per second) bandwidth and processes up to 28 GB/s (Gigabytes per second) with a 32-bit I/O. In addition to its fastest speed and highest density, it is also designed to minimize power consumption with 1.35V operation voltage. It is an ‘eco-friendly’ device which reduces energy consumption by 20% over the preceding memory solutions using 50nm class technology.

    GDDR, Graphics Double Data Rate, is an ultra high speed Graphics DRAM that processes graphic data in electronic devices such as personal computer and game consoles. This product is especially ideal in high end applications of desk PC and laptop. The demand of Graphics DRAM for servers and super computers is expected to increase.

    Hynix plans to start mass production of 2 Gb GDDR5 in the second half of next year to meet the increasing demand for high performance graphics DRAM.

    Maybe this is what Nvidia was waiting for to incorporate in the 300GTX

    Sort of sad when you think about it, the GT210 at stock speeds i've got in this rig gets less than 1/3 of the memory bandwidth as a single one of these chips....



    Moar speed please :)

    Bring this onto gfx cards asap! being 7Gbps chips I feel Nvidia or Ati would clock them around 5.5 to 6Gbps to be safe, and give the tweakers some headroom.
