NVIDIA to use Micron GDDR6 on RTX 20 series

At least at launch

Micron has revealed that it’s going to be the initial supplier of 8Gb memory for the GeForce RTX 20 Series. This partnership is exclusive for the launch yet NVIDIA’s AIB partners might team up with other memory vendors.

Micron has been NVIDIA’s preferred supplier for GDDR5X memory already regarding the green factions GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti cards. Micron has already stopped its production of GDDR5X memory allocating their resources to mass manufacturing 14Gbps 8Gb GDDR6 modules. GDDR6 is a big step up from its predecessor offering a significant drop in power consumption and a solid jump in performance.

By the time of the hard launch the vendors should be ready to meet market demands, since SK Hynix and Samsung also have their offerings ready. At the end of the day all chips from the different vendors are based on the same design yet the manufacturing process differs, which usually has ends up in different overclocking potential.
