There are a few key specifications that heavily influence the performance of a graphics card. GPU fillrate—the rate that it can "fill" polygons with color—is a major one. GPU compute throughput is another, and arguably more important in the modern era. However, one of the oldest specs remains one of the most... Read more...
Samsung just annoucned its next-generation HBM3E "Shinebolt" and GDDR7 memory. While Samsung may have lagged behind rival memory manufacturers SK Hynix and Micron in launching HBM3E, Shinebolt is poised to be the fastest HBM3E for the high performance computing (or HPC) industry. Meanwhile, Samsung is leading the pack... Read more...
It still feels like we're getting our feet wet with the latest-generation graphics cards from AMD and NVIDIA, the former of which just expanded its lineup with the Radeon RX 7800 XT and Radeon RX 7700 XT at Gamescom. Be that as it may, work has already begun on next-gen GPU solutions. To that end, it's said that... Read more...
Micron just put out a press release crowing about its latest achievement: 8-high HBM3 Gen2 memory stacks with up to 24GB of capacity and a 50% improvement in per-pin transfer rate over extant HBM3. That raises the data rate to 9.2 Gbps, which sounds low until you realize that we're talking about massively-parallel... Read more...
Samsung is claiming a key victory against rival Micron in the race to bring next-generation graphics memory to market. While not exactly stated in so many words, what Samsung did say is that it has wrapped up development of what it is touting as the industry's first GDDR7 DRAM, with a huge performance uplift compared...

Every major graphics product out right now uses either GDDR6, GDDR6X, or HBM3 memory, and the latter option only really exists for super-computing chips like NVIDIA's Hopper H100, AMD's Instinct MI250X, and Intel's Data Center GPU Max. GDDR6 and GDDR6X are the standards of our day, and they're really the same... Read more...
A report emanating from a Chinese tech news source asserts that the next generation of NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards are “expected” to come packing GDDR7 memory. It is also claimed that the next-gen NVIDIA lineup, unsurprisingly referenced as the RTX 50 series by the source, will be the first graphics cards featuring... Read more...
We have only now entered into the era of DDR5 memory with the introduction of Intel's Alder Lake platform pushing us through the door, and it will take some time for the latest memory standard to gain significant traction. That's to say, DDR4 isn't going to disappear from the market in the near future. Nevertheless... Read more...
