SK Hynix highlights the huge size advantage of HBM over GDDR5 memory

Posted on 11/16 12:48 in Shows | 0

As die shrinks have become more difficult, companies have turned to 3D die stacking and technologies like HBM (High Bandwidth Memory) to improve performance.SK Hynix helpfully had some HBM memory on display at GTC this year, and Tweaktown caught photographic evidence of 8Gb of GDDR5 compared with a 1 GB HBM stack and a 4GB HBM2 stack.

Nvidia's Pascal flagship looks to be using GDDR5X memory

Posted on 02/07 11:40 in More | 0

Computex is on the horizon, and with it comes the reveal (and supposed launch) of two brand new graphics cards in Nvidia’s line-up.Instead of GDDR5, Nvidia is looking at GDDR5X, a faster variant of the memory that is only now going into mass production.

This announcement might seem a bit anticlimactic now that Nvidia has already stated that the GeForce GTX 1080 will use GDDR5X RAM, but Micron has announced that GDDR5X is now in mainstream production, months ahead of its originally expected schedule.One interesting thing about the GTX 1080 is that the RAM it uses is at the lower-end of the memory Micron said it could ship.

SK Hynix Will Launch GDDR6 in 2018, But What About HBM2?

Posted on 04/25 19:18 in Shows | 0

” This is an interesting statement, given that HBM2, not GDDR5X/6 has been broadly positioned as the future of next-generation memory.Instead, we’ve had two extremely high-end products from Nvidia that both use HBM2, and nothing from AMD to date.

Micron Releases Update on GDDR5X, GDDR6 Roadmaps, Production

Posted on 06/05 15:47 in Shows | 0

The company recently published a blog post detailing how it has extended both GDDR5X and intends to push into GDDR6.The memory manufacturer believes there’s substantial headroom left in both standards, with GDDR5X/GDDR6 pushing up to 16Gbps of bandwidth per pin by 2019, or double GDDR5’s current maximum data rate.
