Micron napoveduje svoj začetni status partnerja za uvedbo NVIDIA RTX 20-Series GDDR6

Memory subsystems are an important part of graphics workloads, and both AMD and NVIDIA have always been looking to cross the cutting-edge of tech in both GPU production and memory fabrication technologies. AMD has been hitching itself to the HBM bandwagon with much more fervor than NVIDIA, albeit with somewhat lukewarm results - at least from a consumer, gaming GPU perspective. NVIDIA has been more cautious: lock HBM's higher costs and lower availability to higher-margin products that can leverage the additional bandwidth, and leave GDDR to muscle its way through consumer products - a strategy that has likely helped in keeping BOM costs for its graphics cards relatively low.

Micron je bil edino podjetje z načrtom in obsegom proizvodnje partner NVIDIA pri lansiranju serije RTX 20, pri čemer so izdelki nad (vključno z) GTX 2070 vsi nosili nov visokozmogljiv spominski podsistem. Micron je spomin GDDR6 že napovedal kot izdelek v letu 2017, z vzorčenjem do začetka leta 2018 in množično proizvodnjo do junija - ravno toliko časa, da lahko v septembru izidete lepe zaloge za nove, sijoče grafične kartice. Seveda ta ramp-up in začetno Micronovo vodstvo ne pomeni, da bodo edini dobavitelji za NVIDIA - vsekakor pa lahko rečemo, da bodo vsaj najprimernejši vsaj še dober čas.
