Hynix has memory at 8 GHz

Hynix has memory at 8 GHz

Few things in life are truly insatiable and here are some of them – human greed and the need for video card memory bandwidth. When it comes to the former there’s hardly any progress in remedying the situation but this is not the case with the latter – after all one day we may see memory that is fast enough to satisfy any GPUs need for data. Hynix has made one more step in this direction – the company now has GDDR5 memory that runs at 8 GHz. Until now the fastest such memory worked at 7 GHz.

The information is by no means official but it was revealed in company documents so there’s every reason to believe it is true. The new 8 GHz video memory has the SK Hynix H5GQ4H24AJR-R4C product name and its organization is 128M x 32. The chips are made using FBGA technology and they have 170 pins, while working at 1.55V. What’s even better is that the memory is available now so expect new high-end cards with this memory any time soon.

Unfortunately it is not clear when we will see this memory in action but since Christmas is near we might as well see a video card with 8 GHz memory in the next few weeks.
