What is Graphics Memory?
Memory types used as system RAM can also be used for graphics cards in most cases. But high-end cards require memory faster than system RAM. GDDR2 was the first such special-purpose RAM used for graphics cards. The technology behind GDDR2 was different from that which powered DDR2, which was later introduced as system RAM.

The latest graphics cards using GDDR4 also have a presence in the market.
