Samsung has started mass producing 2nd Generation 8GB HBM2

Higher performance at lower voltages!



Read more about Samsung's 2nd generation 8GB HBM2 memory.

What kind of latency are they seeing with these chips? Bandwidth is great but latency is important as well.

This is good news for amd, it means a small vega gpu with a single hbm2 stack that could replace polaris 10.

Latency is extremely low.

This is good news to hear. I wonder if any Vega chips will switch over. Though I expect Samsung to price them as a premium product.

Part of the reasoning behind HBM was to lower latency, bringing memory physically closer to the CPU with highspeed interconnects.

Not sure how this new HBM2 compares to Samsung's 1st generation 8GB HBM2, but it will be much better than an equivalent GDDR5/5X setup.
