NVIDIA Showcased Pascal HBM Graphics Card in Japan

NVIDIA’s upcoming Pascal launch is hotly anticipated as the company transfers from GDDR5 to High Bandwidth Memory on a 16nm manufacturing process. The performance increase from Maxwell is predicted to be quite substantial compared to previous generation graphic card launches and it will be interesting to see NVIDIA’s first HBM-powered GPU.

Unlike AMD’s Fiji line-up, the 2nd generation HBM chips allow for increased memory capacity. Apparently, NVIDIA’s top-tier gaming chip will feature 16GB HBM2 while the compute card utilizes 32GB. This is a staggering increase from the 6GB on the GTX 980Ti or 12GB on the Titan X. The graphics card opts for a 4096-bit memory interface, DirectX 12 functionality and contains around 17 billion transistors.

The GPU’s core has been teased at GTC 2015 in Japan and looks pretty similar to earlier announcements. Clearly, with the new manufacturing process and move to HBM2, Pascal is the most important release for over a decade. HBM revision 1 has been somewhat plagued by supply chain issues but this should be resolved by the time for Pascal’s release in 2016. HBM2 is a major step up, but consumers should expect a very hefty price tag for NVIDIA’s truly next-generation chip.

    Nvidia and “hefty price tag” always go together, and always will until AMD can start to match them in terms of driver reliability, temperature,power consumption etc. And before anyone chirps up mentioning the odd card here and there I am talking about the larger picture, the entire range of cards past and present.

    Nvidia have been known to release more driver builds in three months than AMD does in an entire year, I can’t understand why Nvidia gets code for new games to optimise drivers but AMD does not (quite so much). AMD need to get it together a bit more so that they can compete with Nvidia and force prices down so that we the consumers benefit. According to the latest steam survey, 53.29% of users have an Nvidia card, 27.05% have AMD and 19.27% of people use Intel GPUs. CPUs are the same story with a massive 75.54% of users using Intel CPUs and only 24.46% using AMD.

    In both GPU and CPU people prefer to go with the most expensive choice so there must be a huge chasm of difference for people to bite the bullet and pay extra.

    http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/ …….. just incase anyone wants to check the figures I posted.

    I own two systems,
    1: i5 3570K, GTX Titan (won, not paid for) 32GB DDR3
    2: FX 8350, GTX 750 Ti, 12GB DDR3.
    Just listed those so that people can see I do own an AMD product, and the truth is I wish I owned more but I am not willing to take the chance just yet.
