Hynix ramps GDDR 5 clock speed to 7GHz
Increase of 36 per cent
Hynix has introduced GDDR 5 memory capable of running at a whopping 7GHz, though you're going to have to wait until next year to get hold of it.
The memory company yesterday unveiled the high-speed video Ram in the form of a 54nm 1Gb chip. At 7GHz, the new part is 35.7 per cent faster than current top-of-the-line GDDR 5, which runs at 4.5GHz.
It's also more power efficient too. The Hynix chip is driven by a 1.35V power line - today's fast GDDR 5 chips run at 1.5V.
And the wait? Until sometime during the first six months of 2009, Hynix said.
That's the buzzer telling you you're wrong. If it is 2.5GHz faster at 7GHz above 4.5GHz, then the equation to me should be 2.5 divided by 4.5 giving a fraction of 0.55 which is 55.5% faster, not your 37.5% faster.
