Default Micron to make graphics memory

THE MEMORY BUSINESS is no game, but that hasn't stopped DRAM maker Micron from diving headfirst into the graphics market with plans to supply memory chips for Nvidia and AMD GPUs.

According to CNET, Micron, the number three DRAM maker in the world, will enter the graphics memory sector with Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) memory at first, with an aim to move on to 50nm process tech for GDDR3 and GDDR5 chips in the near future.

The offerings will be aimed at punters in the upper middle range of the graphics chip business, initially targeting memory with speeds of 1600MHz and competing directly with already established players like Samsung and Hynix.
