Probably won't see these on Nvidias Volta cards, or not on the mid/low end cards. I'd bet the higher end cards will see them. I don't think HBM2 will get used in consumer cards for Nvidia just yet

You can already get an Nvidia card with HBM2, it's not cheap but anybody can buy it, unless you're referring to gaming cards.

Gaming/consumer cards yes

I'd still class a £7K card a consumer card.

I really hope you're being sarcastic...

7K is NOT a consumer-grade graphics card price. Both the companies themselves and consumers accept this.

Why is it not? It's not for gaming, it's aimed at different market. Anybody involved in HPC could buy one for themselves. It's still affordable for a consumer who is in that market. Compare it to the cost of running supercomputers.

There are middle grounds between supercomputers and non-consumer grade computers. It's not just 'consumer grade' - 'non-consumer grade' - 'supercomputers'. There are middle grounds, but anything after £2000 for a GPU is not consumer grade in my opinion. Firstly because it's so prohibitively expensive, but more importantly because we already know that high-end performance for consumers can be found for significantly less. So what does the £2000-£7000 market introduce? Very specific features that are not designed for general consumers.

edit: Also, consumer grade signifies consumption rather than production. Nobody buys a £7000 GPU just to 'consume'. Companies buy them en mass because they can afford them as they allow them to make money themselves, or 'produce'.

You're thinking in the wrong market. This card is pennies compared to what you can get in the high performance computing market.
