Micron announced today that its high-performance 16 Gb/16 Gbps GDDR6 memory is now available for AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards. Leveraging the company’s advanced 1z process technology, Micron’s GDDR6 memory offers up to 512 B/s bandwidth speeds in select RDNA 2 products such as the Radeon RX 6900 XT and Radeon RX 6800 XT.

From Micron:

As graphics and gaming applications become more demanding, so do the requirements for high bandwidth memory and system performance. Modern gamers expect high-resolution, immersive experiences, and GDDR6 delivers with its support of fast frame rates. The result is excellent performance and speed that minimize lag time and provide gamers with lifelike effects.

“Micron is passionate about driving product innovation in leading-edge graphics for our customers,” said Mark Montierth vice president and general manager of High-Performance Memory and Networking at Micron. “Our GDDR6 Ultra-Bandwidth Solution, in collaboration with AMD GPU capability, will provide an enhanced user experience and advanced performance in gaming.”

“Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards were built to deliver high-performance, no-compromises gaming experiences, and the addition of Micron memory to the product line will help us meet that objective,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager of the Graphics Business Unit at AMD. “Micron has a strong history of developing advanced memory products, and we worked closely with their engineering team to optimize GDDR6 for RDNA 2 architecture-based graphics cards, giving our board partners more choice and flexibility to produce additional designs for gamers.”

The first AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards that will be blessed with Micron’s GDDR6 memory will be the Radeon RX 6600 and Radeon RX 6700. These are expected to be available starting in Q4 2021.

  1. LOL wut?

    These cards are already “released”. IIRC, the 6800/XT and 6900XT already have GDDR6 @ 16 Gb/sec, the lower models step down starting with the 6700XT @ 14 GB/sec.

    Are the 6700XT and 6600/XT getting a refresh already?

  2. Yea I don’t understand this statement at all. The memory is ready for cards that are already out with GDDR6 memory? Or is this a FASTER memory for cards that had GDDR6?
