    GDDR6 Going to AI and Machine Learning

    Just when we were all hoping to get excited about GPU prices coming down on future generations, we find there may more impediments to that. Given that there are huge inventories in the market, and generally no competition at the ultra-high end, now we get to find out that GDDR6 is going to be...
