At Micron, we clearly recognize the value GDDR technologies bring to high-performance designs. Our market-leading GDDR5X technology dominates the performance graphics segment while our pioneering GDDR5N technology is enabling a new breed of switching solutions in the data center.

With our latest GDDR6N technology, Micron continues this tradition of innovation and performance, designed to exceed the rigorous demands high bandwidth networking solutions place on the memory subsystem.

We’re actively engaged with partners and customers to enable our GDDR6 and GDDR6N technologies beyond the traditional graphics markets. Stay tuned – partner announcements to follow.

Contact us today for more details on how our latest GDDR6N technology can help your designs succeed. And check out our white paper, Extending the Benefits of GDDR Beyond Graphics.
