Samsung Claims the Fastest DDR3 at 2Gz
Samsung Electronics announced that it has developed the industry's fastest 2.0 Gbps 90 nm 512Mb graphics double data rate 3 (GDDR3) dynamic random access memory (DRAM).
Samsung's new 2.0Gbps high-speed graphics solution runs at up to 8.0GigaBytes per second (GBps), which is 70 percent faster than the conventional 1.2Gbps device.
The korean comany also initiated mass production of its 1.6Gbps 512Mb GDDR3, which was developed in December 2004. Generating 6.4GBps transmission rates, the 1.6Gbps GDDR3 is available in graphic cards with a maximum density of 1GB by combining sixteen monolithic 512Mb GDDR3s together. The new GDDR3 incorporates a JEDEC standard 136-ball package.
512Mb GDDR3 is expected to support the faster data transmission rate for higher resolution images in next generation game consoles.
Samsung's 1.6Gbps 90nm 512Mb GDDR3 DRAMs are available now in volume production worldwide.
Samsung said the global graphics DRAM market will grow 43 per cent this year to US$1.5 billion and exceed $2 billion next year, citing research company Mercury Research.

Am I to assume that this will make 512MB graphics cards cheaper (eventually). and 1GB cards will be with as soon?
So what? Can the graphics chips (even the 7800GTX) take advantage of all that memory? Would there be a noticable/significant gain in performance by having 1GB video RAM?
