With the Nvidia 1000 series of GPUs Nvidia did not move to HBM, High Bandwidth memory, instead utilizing enhanced memory compression techniques and GDDR5X memory in order to increase memory bandwidth while also keeping costs down by sticking to tried and proved hardware.  

We already know that Nvidia already has working GPUs with HBM in their Tesla P100/GP 100 silicon, GPUs which are designed for high-performance supercomputer use and will not be widely available until Q1 2017 to OEMs. This means that a consumer or gaming version of this GPU is not going to the market anytime soon.

Right now we would expect Nvidia to release a large GPU with HBM 2.0 memory are some point around Q2-Q3 2016, though at this time we cannot be certain if this will be with Improved Pascal of Vega Silicon.
