Samsung has confirmed that they will be supplying Nvidia with their latest 16Gb GDDR6 memory to power the company's upcoming Quadro RTX series of graphics cards, which are set to release this October. 

Nvidia's RT series of graphics cards can offer insane frame buffer sizes of up to 48GB, making Samsung an ideal partner for the company. Samsung was the first company to market with 16Gb GDDR6 memory modules, allowing Nvidia to create such a large bank of VRAM on their $10,000 Quadro RTX 8000. 

Samsung's 16Gb GDDR6 memory modules are said to offer speeds of 14 Gbps per pin, a 75% performance gain over standard 8Gbps 8Gb GDDR5 memory modules. Samsung's latest GDDR6 chips also provide power consumption levels 35% lower than what is required for GDDR5, with Samsung's GDDR6 memory requiring operating voltages 1.35V while 8Gb GDDR5 modules need 1.55V.

Below is a comment from Samsung's Senior Vice President of Samsung Semiconductor, Jim Elliot. 


It’s a tremendous privilege to have been selected by NVIDIA to launch Samsung’s 16Gb GDDR6, and
to have enjoyed the full confidence of their design team in making our key contribution to the
NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPUs.

Nvidia's use of large frame buffers will allow end users to create larger models, scenes and data sets than ever before, allowing creators to better utilise the graphical horsepower of Nvidia's latest GPU offerings.

i don't know of any game that even at 4k uses more than 12gb of gddr5 memory. in fact, most games at 4k using 10gb are not running at 60fps and if it is, it's a 1080ti.

So, this is rather useless hype.Quote

You forget that this is about Quadro graphics cards, which do need insane amounts of VRAM. There is a reason why enterprise servers have over 100GB of DRAM and consumer PCs only need around 8-16GB. Everything is workload dependent.

On the consumer side, I'd imagine that a Quadro RTX 5000 equivalent would have 8GB of VRAM while a Quadro RTX equivalent would have 12GB of VRAM. Gamers don't need the extra VRAM, Pros do.Quote

Quadro RTX not Geforce GTX, these things are used for productivity not gaming. not to mention the price difference between consumer level GPUs compared to Enterprise cards is huge.

Quadro RTX 5000 16GB $2,300
Quadro RTX 6000 24GB $6,300
Quadro RTX 8000 48GB $10,000Quote

sorry guys, but i think the news were about samsung producing those chips, not that those chips are in the RTX Quadro.Quote
