Samsung – fastest Graphics chip

Samsung Electronics announced on Friday that it has increased the data transfer speed of the world’s fastest graphics memory (GDDR4 ) by two-thirds. This means that the semiconductor, telecommunication and  digital media company is again leading the way in manufacturing the fastest memory chips.

Using 80-nanometer production technology, the 4Gb/s (2.0GHz) is 66 percent faster than today’s fastest commercially available memory, a 2.4Gb/s GDDR4.

The chip, available in 512Mb density, has a 32-bit data bus and hopefully will be seen in the commercial arena by March 2008.
