The next generation

ATI's new flagship performance and high end chips will have the
ability to use GDDR5 memory. This is the next big thing that ATI plans
to embrace.

It looks that GDDR4 didn't really hit off well, as it doesn't brings a
lot of advantages over GDDR3, but GDDR5 promises some crazy
frequencies all the way up to 2.5GHz / 5GHz effectively, which is more
than two times faster with what you can achieve today with GDDR4.

This mean that the new memory will have more bandwidth and this is
something that graphic card always enjoys.

At this time, we are not aware that GT200 has GDDR5 support.

Hmm, not bad but I like to see Nvidia and ATI start to reduce the power
these cards actually need as well now. Those reins have been let loose a
bit. I mean, CPU's have pulled back a bit on power requirements, think its
time for GPU's as well now.
