Jason R. Wilson

Micron Technology, Inc., a company with a "rich history of innovation and collaboration with industry leaders to deliver breakthrough performance that enables the most advanced gaming solutions," launches new GDDR6 memory for the AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series GPUs. This new memory option by Micron utilizes 16Gb/16Gbps GDDR6 memory on its AMD RDNA 2 structure. Micron is tapping into their 1z advanced process technology, allowing for "up to 512GB/s system performance," capable for even the most high-performing applications—such as those used in graphics and gaming. The collaboration between Micron and AMD will allow for high-bandwidth technology for high processing frame rates and essential 4K resolutions while gaming.

“Micron is passionate about driving product innovation in leading-edge graphics for our customers. Our GDDR6 Ultra-Bandwidth Solution, in collaboration with AMD GPU capability, will provide an enhanced user experience and advanced performance in gaming.”

— Mark Montierth, Vice President and General Manager of High-Performance Memory and Networking, Micron Technology, Inc.
