    Turing where are you? oh wait Nvidia has no pressure and plenty of stock...... Goodbye Turing see ya in fall

    Well, it would make sense to see Nvidia's next offering with GDDR6 now that it starts to come around. If they release anything, that is.

    Ya because you know when GDDR6 hits mass production Nvidia instantaneously spawns millions of GPU's in stock and it doesn't take months to create it, aka Fall release..

    Bandwidth itself is not important as metric. What matters is bandwidth/watt. As every watt not eaten by video memory is watt which can be eaten by GPU.
    Then 2nd metric which matters is capacity / space. 3rd is obvious bandwidth / space.

    I am quite sure, 3rd most important has been greatly improved over gddr5. 2nd one, I am not so sure about initial capacity per package.
    And 1st, this better be good improvement.

    But in the end, I am just happy to see they state that production is smooth.

    what a joke 1/4 faster than xgdr5 ? stupid industrie is just trying to milk us again and again ... ddr2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 noting new just selling the same old bs for ages now. how about a L1 cache solution in speed for the masses as system or gc mem? or at least something as fast? not this old nosense

    I think a distinction needs to be made between Gb (Giga-bit) and GB (Giga-Byte).
    I read this to be 8Gb chips ramping to volume production, so 1GB per chip.
