Qimonda sampling DDR 5 graphics chips

November 1, 2007 – Qimonda AG says it has begun sending customers of what it calls the industry’s first samples of 512Mb DDR5 graphics processors.

GDRR5, now in deliberation by JEDEC as a potential graphics DRAM standard, is expected to offer data rates of up to 20Gb/sec/component, more than double the bandwidth of GDDR3 memories, as well as offer power savings.

Initial products are expected in 2008, initially targeting high-performance desktops and then notebooks, followed later by game consoles and other graphics-intensive applications.
