Hynix Semiconductor has announced the industry’s first 2Gb GDDR5 chip that can operate at unprecedented 7GHz effective clock-speed. The memory maker claims that the new chip with never-before-seen performance will be in demand already in the second half of 2010.

The newly developed GDDR5 is the fastest and highest density graphics memory available in the market. It operates at 7GHz effective clock-speed and processes up to 28GB/s with a 32-bit I/O. In addition to its fastest speed and highest density, it is also designed to minimize power consumption with 1.35V operation voltage. Thanks to 40nm process technology, the device reduces energy consumption by 20% over the preceding memory solutions using 50nm class technology.

2Gb GDDR5 memory chips will enable graphics cards with 2GB or more of onboard memory with 224GB/s or higher peak bandwidth. It can be assumed that Hynix’s new memory chips will be used on the next-generation graphics cards from ATI, graphics business unit of Advanced Micro Devices, and Nvidia Corp., which are also due in the second half of next year.

Hynix plans to start mass production of 2Gb GDDR5 in the second half of next year to meet the increasing demand for high performance graphics DRAM.
