Coming much closer to video cards? Samsung expands its mass production to HBM2

Memories with interface Particularly wide ones that are built on the graphic core graphics card chassis may become much more popular in the near future

With all due respect to the " The good old ones in their place lie, which Micron is trying to keep alive for at least the end of the decade - it's hard to argue that modern HBM (high bandwidth memory) memories are something we want to see more and more in future hardware products, with the potential for limited power consumption And a significantly higher working speed in compact dimensions, thanks to the integration of a dense silicone interposer substrate alongside the processing core with which they operate.

It will probably take some time until we see any actual results, but an official announcement from the company A significant expansion of the latest generation of HBM2 chips gives us hope that this standard will soon be more widely available and accessible than ever before, And from the GDDR5X.

The new creation of , Soon many more models in the market?

Samsung, which together with SK Hynix is ​​spearheading the integration of HBM technologies in the market (alongside continued production) (GDDR5), announced the expansion of commercial and mass production of HBM2 chips in a 8-layer structure, with a total volume of 8 GB for each such structure and up to 2,048 Gb / s for each interface point for bandwidth Effective of not less than 256 gigabytes per second per array, as past experience shows us that graphically you can enjoy up to four such arrays, for volume Of 32 gigabytes of terabyte per second (!).

The various arrays available in HBM2 technology, from marketing material from SK Hynix - the spoken memories of Belong to the most complex and advanced type

We already know with almost absolute certainty that the Radeon Vega cards intended for gaming will contain up-to-date HBM2 memories, probably those from Samsung, similar to what is also the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition cards - which may well be the annex to make it the least common device for most cards. The screen in the middle market and the high market, assuming that They will indeed decide to favor it in their next home generation over the GDDR5X currently there. Will be interesting, and most importantly - will be fast.

  1. For those who do not understand the potential of this thing that will think about GTX660 or GTX960, and now imagine what these 2 cards can achieve with HBM2 _ (and compatible bandwidth)

  2. Why are they talking only about video cards and not Ram?
    Why is there a difference in memories between Ram on computers and video cards?
    I would love if anyone explained the difference to me

    1. Because graphical processing needs a particularly serious bandwidth at the same time to ensure a fast primer rate, the graphics processor that sits on the video card works directly in front of the graphic memory that is around it…

    I did not quite understand.

    If this is better technology why not use it for Ram?

    A matter of price? Or is it less suitable for the sun as a ram?

    1. It's not exactly the same technology (albeit similar, but different goals) and actually not appropriate ...
      Besides, there is also the processor bandwidth itself to Ram memory, so it cannot take advantage of graphic memory bandwidth.
