    [News] AI and ML applications to eat into GDDR6 supply, says report

    http://hexus.net/tech/news/graphics/...y-says-report/

    Now, a new report published by the EE Times suggests that there is going to be competition for GDDR6 memory from outside of the PC graphics card market. The journal asserts that "applications such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), which need ultra-fast memories, have shorted gamers of their GDDR supply".

    Tallying up competitive segments that are now looking at buying up GDDR RAM, rather than the slower DDR3 and DDR4 memory types, the EE Times name-checks the following:

    Automotive
    AR and VR hardware
    4K and 8K video processing
    Data centre and networking applications
    Crypto currency applications
    And the aforementioned AI and ML tech

    Automotive?

    I don't think that writer knows what they're talking about. It's extremely difficult to get hardware automotive qualified, even if you wanted it for autonomous purposes there's no way you could put these chips on a vehicle today.

    Probably, I just don't see how automotive could be the top driver of anything when it takes years to gain the hardware certification.

    With redondancy you can do anything reliable,

    Most problems from electronics in cars came from mechanical stress and thermal stress. Remove this from equation (There is solutions for this, the problem is just cost especially in automotive) you remove 99.9% of problems.

    A period of automotiv electronics, they tried to do cheaper than the cheapest without taking acount of thoses stresses. Bad things happens, and now the automotive certification is a way for part manufacturers to sell to a higher price. That doesn't mean all stuff that aren't automotive aren't reliable ...

    Actually that's not true, automotive qualification does require both ASIL qualification and validation of passing thermal stress tests. It's not just rebranded hardware.

    In either case, it doesn't matter. If you part isn't automotive qualified it won't go into any vehicle made by a large OEM. I can't speak for Tesla (who doesn't seem to even know what a FMEA is), but the liability of not using automotive qualified parts is too high. Whenever there's a standard established, not adhering to it drives up the cost of lawsuits significantly.
