Samsung announces GDDR5, the world's fastest memory chip with a density of 512MB.

The Samsung GDDR5 chips transfer data at 6 gigabits per second. That is four times faster than current high-end graphics chips.
The graphics memory is also capable of transmitting moving images and associated data at 24GB/s or processing up to 16 DVD quality videos while saving 20% in power consumption over today’s most popular graphics chip.

Hynix just recently announced the industry’s largest one gigabit GDDR5 graphics DRAM.
