Double data rate

 


DDR5x

 

GDDR5X targets a transfer rate of 10 to 14 Gbit/s per pin, twice that of GDDR5.

Essentially, it provides the memory controller the option to use either a double data rate mode that has a prefetch of 8n,

or a quad data rate mode that has a prefetch of 16n.

GDDR5 only has a double data rate mode that has an 8n prefetch. GDDR5X also uses 190 pins per chip.

By comparison, standard GDDR5 has 170 pins per chip.
