This will be the type of memory that will be used on AMD’s Flagship graphics card in the Radeon 300 series and NVIDIA’s Pascal GPUs in 2016. The whole idea behind HBM is to stack the memory modules to save space and also integrate them into the GPU package itself. This way the communication distance between the each of the modules and the GPU is reduced, which it turn increases bandwidth and power draw.
