How Micron GDDR7 Improves Gaming

Micron's fast-paced world requires graphics memory performance to meet the needs of growing applications such generative AI, HPC, gaming, and visualisation

With GDDR6 clock speeds at maximum speed and moving to 100s of picoseconds one million times faster than a human blink, further advances were not technologically or financially viable

Based on Micron’s dominant 1β (1-beta) node, Micron GDDR7 is the next generation of GDDR memory designed to improve graphics and gaming performance for users

Its initial memory performance enables data rates of 32 Gb/s and up to 1.5 TB/s of system bandwidth

Micron’s groundbreaking work in integrating PAM4 on GDDR6X laid the groundwork for the DRAM industry

PAM3 uses three different voltage levels -1, 0 and +1 to encode 1.5 times more information per signal cycle than non-return-to-zero (NRZ) technology on GDDR6

Micron GDDR7 is not just used in gaming but also in a wider range of applications including edge AI inference and HPC

Micron is actively developing a broad portfolio of GDDR7 devices with expanded capacity, improved performance, and reduced power consumption
