The speed update for GDDR6X has been speculated for a long time, and now it should be 21 Gbps ready for use. The first area of ​​application will be the expected new flagship, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, which is expected to appear in January 2022.

Technical specifications are clear from the product code of the new Micron memory stick. Usually the last digit indicates the effective clock rate – 21 Gbps in this case. Micron has its own decoder for this, which explains each letter or number.

The previous GDDR6X memory is only 8GB (256*32) per chip, that is, 1GB, the new chips can be doubled to 16GB, that is, 2GB – like the 16GB (512*32) decoder that Dub GDDR6 classic. For a 24 GB graphics card, this means halving the chips needed from 24 to 12, so the back of the RTX 3090 Ti could remain unequipped – the alternative would then be a 48 GB variant of the future, but most likely for the Professional field. Officially, Micron’s website has a higher speed, But so far only as an 8 gigabit chip.

What is known about the RTX 3090 Ti / Super

Since the summer, there have been rumors of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, which will update the wallet as the new spearhead among graphics cards and lead a possible “update” to the Ampere-based GeForce RTX 3000 series. First of all, the fully developed GA102 is mentioned with 10,752 shaders, surrounded by faster graphics memory.

Full scaling and faster memory will drain power consumption even if the clock behavior of the GPU is currently unknown. This will most likely be 450 watts. The value is new for an official solution, but partner cards are already in use with the classic RTX 3090 with the same amount of watts.
