Micron Delivers High-Performance GDDR6 Memory for AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards

Col­la­bo­ra­ti­on lever­a­ges inno­va­ti­on in Ultra-Band­width Solu­ti­ons to enab­le high frame rates and enhan­ced 4K reso­lu­ti­on gaming

BOISE, Ida­ho, Nov. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Micron Tech­no­lo­gy, Inc. (Nasdaq: MU), today announ­ced that its high-per­for­mance 16Gb/16Gbps GDDR6 memo­ry solu­ti­on is now avail­ab­le with AMD Rade­on™ RX 6000 Seri­es gra­phics cards built on the AMD RDNA™ 2 gaming archi­tec­tu­re. Using Micron’s advan­ced 1z pro­cess tech­no­lo­gy, this latest ver­si­on of GDDR6 enab­les up to 512GB/s sys­tem per­for­mance for deman­ding app­li­ca­ti­ons like gaming and gra­phics. Today’s announ­ce­ment con­ti­nues Micron’s rich histo­ry of inno­va­ti­on and col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with indus­try lea­ders to deli­ver bre­akthrough per­for­mance that enab­les the most advan­ced gaming solutions.

As gra­phics and gaming app­li­ca­ti­ons beco­me more deman­ding, so do the requi­re­ments for high band­width memo­ry and sys­tem per­for­mance. Modern gamers expect high-reso­lu­ti­on, immer­si­ve expe­ri­en­ces, and GDDR6 deli­vers with its sup­port of fast frame rates. The result is excel­lent per­for­mance and speed that mini­mi­ze lag time and pro­vi­de gamers with life­li­ke effects.

Micron is pas­sio­na­te about dri­ving pro­duct inno­va­ti­on in lea­ding-edge gra­phics for our cus­to­mers,” said Mark Mon­tierth vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger of High-Per­for­mance Memo­ry and Net­wor­king at Micron. “Our GDDR6 Ultra-Band­width Solu­ti­on, in col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with AMD GPU capa­bi­li­ty, will pro­vi­de an enhan­ced user expe­ri­ence and advan­ced per­for­mance in gaming.”

AMD RDNA 2 gaming archi­tec­tu­re is opti­mi­zed to deli­ver high per­for­mance and power effi­ci­en­cy. Harn­essing the bene­fits of AMD RDNA 2 gaming archi­tec­tu­re, AMD Rade­on RX 6000 Seri­es gra­phics cards address the ever-incre­a­sing deman­ds of modern games, deli­vering high frame rates, incredi­ble visu­al fide­li­ty and high­ly respon­si­ve gaming experiences.

Rade­on RX 6000 Seri­es gra­phics cards were built to deli­ver high-per­for­mance, no-com­pro­mi­ses gaming expe­ri­en­ces, and the addi­ti­on of Micron memo­ry to the pro­duct line will help us meet that objec­ti­ve,” said Scott Her­kel­man, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger of the Gra­phics Busi­ness Unit at AMD. “Micron has a strong histo­ry of deve­lo­ping advan­ced memo­ry pro­ducts, and we worked clo­se­ly with their engi­nee­ring team to opti­mi­ze GDDR6 for RDNA 2 archi­tec­tu­re-based gra­phics cards, giving our board part­ners more choice and fle­xi­bi­li­ty to pro­du­ce addi­tio­nal designs for gamers.”

Select AMD Rade­on RX 6000 Seri­es gra­phics cards equip­ped with Micron GDDR6 memo­ry, begin­ning with AMD Rade­on RX 6600 Seri­es and Rade­on RX 6700 Seri­es gra­phics cards, are expec­ted to be avail­ab­le star­ting in Q4 2021.
