[The Chosun Ilbo, December 3 2007] Samsung Builds Fastest Graphics Memory Chip

Samsung Electronics said Sunday that it has developed the world's fastest graphics DRAM chip. The new 6 Gbps 512 Mb GDDR5 can process graphics data twice as fast as existing chips.

DRAM chips are divided into general-purpose chips for personal computers, graphics chips for game consoles and mobile chips for handsets, with graphics DRAM the fastest and most expensive.

With 32 input and output channels, the new chip can process 24 gigabytes of data per second, which is equivalent of 16 DVD-quality movies.
