Samsung today announces production of its 256-megabit (Mb) Graphics Double Data Rate2 (GDDR2) SDRAM. The 256Mb capacity will enable ultra high-density graphics memory cards of 512MBytes, supporting the expanding market of 3D graphics software. “The new device, which has already been supplied to leading graphics card manufacturers, adopts a JEDEC standard 144-ball Fine-pitch Ball Grid Array (FBGA) package. This enables graphic card manufacturers to easily build memory density from 128Mb GDDR2 SDRAM without redesigning the graphic card.”
