Samsung, SK Hynix are to Supply Nvidia with HBM

 

According to sources from Business Korea, Nvidia will be getting a supply of Second Generation High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) from both Samsung and SK Hynix in order to build Nvidia's next generation Pascal GPUs. These chips are planned to be mass produced starting in Q1 2016, after reliability tests at the end of this year. 

First generation HBM is already in use in AMD's R9 Fury and Nano series GPUs, though these GPUs are made using SK Hynix chips exclusively.

HBM memory already shows immense power savings over traditional DRAM memory and can also operate at 4-8 times the speed, making HBM an attractive technology for more than just GPUs. 

Second generation HBM is said to double the speeds of the already impressively fast HBM 1.0 memory and will allow capacities which are 4x larger, meaning that a single chip of HBM 2.0 could have up to 4GB of capacity. This will allow future HBM based GPUs to have more and faster memory than that seen in AMD's 4GB R9 Fury X GPU. 

Future HBM powered GPU could have up to 16GB of memory if AMD and Nvidia were to continue using 4 chips of HBM on their GPUs, which will be more than enough for any of your Gaming needs.

AMD: we spent years of developement with Hynix to create HBM

----becomes JEDEC standard----

nVidia: yeah we're going to use it with no R&D costs lolQuote

err I thought Nvidia dropped Samsung and have gone with TSMC for Pascal?

Previously, Samsung Electronics competed with TSMC to win a contract to produce the Pascal GPU. According to industry sources on Sept. 15, Nvidia decided to let TSMC mass produce the Pascal GPU, which is scheduled to be released next year, using the production process of 16-nm FinFETs. Some in the industry predicted that both Samsung and TSMC would mass produce the Pascal GPU, but the U.S. firm chose only the Taiwanese firm in the end. Since the two foundries have different manufacturing process of 16-nm FinFETs, the U.S. tech company selected the world's largest foundry for product consistency

Just because they are not making the GPU doesn't mean that they cannot make the HBM. They are separate chips.Quote

AMD/ATI have actually pioneered quite a few things that Nvidia then used afterwards so they didn't need to lay out funds for the initial R&D Quote
