Frame rates are also affected by how powerful your GPU is and what kind of memory is on board. For gaming, high resolution and high frame rates are sought after for smoother gameplay and finer detail but without enough memory the result can be motion glitches, screen tiering, or just choppy action with high frame rate games. Samsung 16Gb GDDR6 to the rescue again! When your action scenes are flawlessly smooth and lifelike, especially when tracking other, less ‘memory-endowed’ players, in first-person battle games, your advantage will be on full display. Pun intended.
Overclocking is a hardware hacking technique used by gamers to push their GPU performance and Samsung GDDR6 is known to respond exceptionally well beyond the factory settings. “Gamers are choosing high-end GPUs with Samsung GDDR6 onboard specifically because they know how well it responds to overclocking,” says Donovan Hwang, Marketing Director, MAGIC team at Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. “GDDR6’s exceptionally high memory bandwidth and low power consumption help keep the memory cool (around 70 degrees celsius is ideal) while reaching impressive benchmarks. It’s a fun way to squeeze your GPU to do things like run more frames per second (fps) and it’s easy to do with a tool like GPUZ or MSI Afterburner.” While Samsung and other manufacturers don’t endorse overclocking, it’s definitely not going away. Visit any gaming convention and you’ll find no shortage of liquid nitrogen and blowtorches.
What’s really cool about Samsung GDDR6 is that it’s not only top of the food chain for gaming, it’s widely used in 8K video processing, artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), high-performance computing (HPC) and graphics applications, and even in Bitcoin mining. And if you didn’t know, Samsung is the largest semiconductor company in the world and an industry leader in memory technology and innovation. Plus, Samsung is one of the few semiconductor companies in the world that actually manufactures its own memory and processors. It’s kind of humbling to think that all of that R&D is going into your gaming machine just so you can blow stuff up in dazzling 4K detail.
