Official Specifications For HBM2 Released By JEDEC

High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) debuted with AMD's Fury series graphics cards and was quite the success, although it had some limitations. The two biggest were that it was limited to 4GB and only had a maximum bandwidth of 512 GB/s. This is going to change with HMB2 which will introduce capacities up to 32 GB and speeds of 1 TB/s. This will be more than powerful enough for next-generation graphics cards coming from both NVIDIA and AMD.

AMD Could Have Exclusive Rights to First Wave of HMB2

AMD was the first graphics card company to make use of HBM (high bandwidth memory) with their release of the Fury X and Fury graphics cards. NVIDIA has stated that they are waiting for the second iteration of HBM (HBM2) before they move over to the standard. According to a recent report AMD could be leveraging their deal with SK Hynix to get priority access to HBM2 for their next graphics card series (Arctic Islands).

High Bandwidth Memory Detailed by AMD

Since we first started getting leaks about AMD's new graphics cards the big thing we were hearing about was High Bandwidth Memory (HBM). 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.

Hynix High-Bandwidth Memory Presentation Leaked

While we are all waiting for smaller fabrication nodes for GPUs, there is another revolution that will effect the graphics cards industry. High-Bandwidth Memory (HBM) is a form of stacked DRAM designed to sit on the same package as a processor. Hynix has been working on this technology with AMD and their entire HDM presentation was recently leaked giving us more insight on the technology.
