SK Hynix to Showcase GDDR6-AiM Memory Next Month

SK Hynix announced that it would demonstrate working GDDR6-AiM memory with computing capabilities at CES next month. The GDDR6 accelerator-in-memory technology is designed to speed up artificial intelligence and big data processing by bringing basic computational functions to memory chips.  

SK Hynix’s GDDR6-AIM chips can process data in memory at 16 Gbps, which makes certain computations up to 16 times faster than other methods, according to the company. Such chips are designed for machine learning, high-performance computing, and big data computation and storage. Typically, these types of workloads may not always need truly serious compute performance, but transferring data from memory to a processor takes time and consumes loads of power, so it makes sense to process the data in memory.
