Hynix has some new graphics memory prototype, 2Gb GDDR5 memory chip based on the 40nm manufacturing process.
The new memory chip from Hynix operates on 1.35V and can reach 7Gbps when used with a 32 bit I/O. This translates into an impressive memory clock of 7000 MHZ. Not only that but the actual power consumption of the chip is 20 percent lower than that of similar chips based on the 50nm manufacturing process.
The DRAM module is a prototype right now and mass production is not set to start before the second half of 2010.
