The new GDDR5 memory chips are around 3 times faster than the GDDR3 memories present in game consoles today.
There is vast improvement in GDDR5 in terms of power consumption and speed , the new GDDR5( Graphics double data rate) memory operates at 1.5 volts, representing an approximate 20% improvement when compared to GDDR3.
“We’re pushing image enhancement to a limit never before realized, enabling the smoothest, clearest animation that gamers have yet to experience,” said Mueez Deen, Marketing Director, Graphics Memory, Samsung Semiconductor. “Samsung’s 512 Mb GDDR5 will enable the kind of graphics hardware performance that will spur software developers to deliver a new level of eye-popping games.”
