Samsung GDDR5 DRAM combines eight of the new 8Gb chips to achieve the same density as the 8 gigabytes (GB) required in the latest game consoles.

The memory operates with an I/O data rate of 8 GB per second (Gbps), which is four times faster than the DDR3 DRAM.

2 GB of graphics memory can be created with two of the new chips, which together can process up to 64GB of graphical images per second. That equates to processing approximately 12 full-HD DVDs (5GB equivalent) in a second.

Samsung has completed its line-up of 8GB DRAM solutions based on its 20nm process technology with its 20nm 8GB GDDR5.

Samsung will keep offering its 20nm DRAM products at a variety of densities including 4Gb, 6Gb, 8Gb.
