The Last 48 Hours
It has been a busy 48 hours for the next-gen graphics card VRAM sector, with both Samsung and SK Hynix both teasing their new GDDR6 technology... but all I can think about is who would use this new tech, and when.
NVIDIA will be the first to use GDDR6, with Samsung and SK Hynix given enough time between now and GTC 2018 which NVIDIA kicks off March 26-29, two months from now. NVIDIA's own GPU Technology Conference (GTC) is a professional-focused event, so we won't see another GeForce graphics card unveiled at the event but a new TITAN X isn't out of the question.
Given that NVIDIA can now throw GDDR6 onto their cards, for real now, and skip over HBM2 which is made for the professional market, we could see a next-gen TITAN X graphics card unveiled now that the tech is there to drive it to the next level.
The current-gen TITAN Xp graphics card is powered by NVIDIA's now older Pascal GPU architecture, while the recently-unveiled and monstrous Ethereum miner in the TITAN V is based on their new Volta GPU architecture, but uses HBM2.
