According to President and Chief Executive Officer Sanjay Mehrotra, Micron plans to release its GDDR7 memory in the first part half of 2024. This announcement comes as Samsung has already said that it too is planning the production of its GDDR7 memory. Samsung, however, has not updated on when its next-gen VRAM will become available but an announcement could be forthcoming. In the meantime, Micron is planning on using its 1ß node for the new memory which will be available for consumer and datacenter GPU solutions.

Micron did not share any specifications for its GDDR7 memory in its earning call but if Samsung's December announcement is anything to go by it could support bandwidth up to 36 Gbps. By comparison, GDDR6X which is used in various NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 and 40 series graphics cards, offers up to ~23 Gbps when overclocked. When used on a 256-bit bus Samsung also said its G7 memory could offer up to 1,152 GB/s and jumps up to 1,728 GB/s on a 384-bit bus.
