The emergence GDDR6 dictated by the rapid development of virtual reality helmets that were quite demanding on the resources of computers, especially for graphics systems. GDDR6 will replace GDDR5 and GDDR5X, which are common in modern graphics cards, including the high-end solutions. Nevertheless GDDR6 has a higher throughput - 14 Gbit/s to 10 Gbit/s. In the case of VR-devices may be critical.
It is also important that the passageway GDDR6 is 512 Gbit/s using a 256-bit bus and 768 Gb/s with a 384-bit interface. Another major achievement was the GDDR6 increased by 20% through the use of energy efficiency technologies LP4X regulating the supply voltage depending on the frequency.
