Samsung Officially Lists Two GDDR7 Based Memory Modules On Their Website

Samsung has officially showcased two memory modules utilizing GDDR7 technology on their website. As hinted during last week’s GTC 2024, the initial phase of GDDR7 implementation will prioritize speeds of 28 Gbps and 32 Gbps, which notably surpass those of commercially available GDDR6 and GDDR6X series.


At present, Samsung intends to introduce a 16 Gb (2 GB) density, without any indication of a 24 Gb (3 GB) series. Although the initial recipient of Samsung’s GDDR7 memory remains uncertain, the fact that the company is already distributing samples and showcasing them at GTC 2024 strongly implies NVIDIA’s involvement. The absence of a 3 GB memory option may indicate a preference for standard capacities.


Earlier reports indicated that NVIDIA is considering 28 Gbps modules for its upcoming RTX 50 series, code-named “Blackwell.” While either module could meet this target, opting for 32 Gbps chips offers NVIDIA greater flexibility in adjusting clock speeds. Samsung has previously produced 24 Gbps chips using GDDR6 technology, yet neither AMD nor NVIDIA utilized chips at this speed for their products.

Other companies, such as Micron and SK Hynix, have not yet disclosed their plans for GDDR7 technology or confirmed the specific speeds they are aiming for.
