    Samsung Electronics today claimed that it has developed the world's fastest graphics memory – a GDDR4 graphics DRAM chip with much faster processing than an earlier version that Samsung prototyped only four months ago. According to Samsung, the new GDDR4 memory is designed with 80-nanometer process technology and can process data at 12.8GB/sec, about 30 percent faster than the existing prototypes. The 512Mbit GDDR4 graphics DRAM comes with 32 input/output pins, each of which transfers data at 3.2Gbit/sec. This allows it to transfer the equivalent of up to six DVD-quality movies every second. The memory chips will be used in next generation video cards. The company said it plans mass production of the new product next month.

    Good to see that GDDR4 is on its way in full force. I hope that ATi and nVidia would do the right thing and make their next-gen cards DX10 ready and it would be perfect.

    No joke, a $600 dollar video costs as much as a good processor, motherboard, RAM, and maybe even some hard drives combined.
