NVIDIA GeForce RTX 5090 Update: Samsung Sampling Next-Gen GDDR7 Memory Already

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 5090 Update: Samsung Sampling Next-Gen GDDR7 Memory Already
Aug 29, 2023

We've been hearing more and more about next-gen GDDR7 memory, with the likes of Samsung, Micron, and SK Hynix all fighting for GDDR7 supremacy. But now, we're hearing that Samsung is gearing up to be the biggest supplier to NVIDIA and its next-gen GeForce RTX 50 series GPUs that will eventually be inside of your next-gen Gaming PC.

NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce RTX 5090, GeForce RTX 5080, GeForce RTX 5070 and other RTX 50 series GPUs will adopt new GDDR7 memory, with Business Korea reporting that NVIDIA is "expected to primarily consider Samsung's products for its next-generation lineup over Micron's" upcoming GDDR7 memory.

NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce RTX 50 series will use the "Blackwell" GPU architecture, succeeding the GeForce RTX 40 series and its "Ada Lovelace" GPU architecture. GDDR7 memory was first unleashed by Samsung earlier this month, clocking in at 32Gbps -- up from the 24Gbps speeds of GDDR6X memory used on the GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs -- offering a 1.4x performance boost, with 20% better power efficiency over GDDR6X memory.

GDDR6X memory used on NVIDIA's flagship GeForce RTX 4090 pumps out around 1.1TB/sec of memory bandwidth, GDDR7 memory at 32Gbps will usher in up to 1.5TB/sec of memory bandwidth, ensuring high-end 4K gaming at new levels of performance on the GeForce RTX 5090, RTX 5080 and other high-end RTX 50 series GPUs in 2025, and we'll be ready to rock and roll with RTX 50 series GPUs inside of our next-gen Ready to Ship Gaming PCs by then.
