Earlier this morning, Micron let it slip that NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3090 Ampere graphics cards will ship with 12GB of GDDR6X memory. According to Micron's documentation, the GeForce RTX 3090 will be capable of achieving 1TB/sec of memory bandwidth. However, that's not all that Micron had in store via its... Read more...
It looks as though AMD might be readying a new Radeon Instinct accelerator, one that would finally feature an Arcturus GPU. The latest leak is essentially a continuation of a rumor we have been hearing about since 2018, that being the impending launch of the Radeon Instinct MI100 accelerator with an Arcturus GPU...

Samsung today said it has developed the industry's first 12-layer 3D-TSV (Through Silicon Via) chip packaging technology, calling it "one of the most challenging packaging technologies for mass production of high performance chips." And that is precisely what it will be used for—it will enable Samsung to mass produce... Read more...
Not only has Samsung ramped up production of its sought-after 8GB HBM2 chip, today the company has announced Aquabolt, its significantly faster 2nd generation HBM2. Aquabolt boasts the fastest data transmissions speeds, delivering 2.4Gbps data transfer per pin at 1.2V. Today’s announcement marks a leap forward in... Read more...
Samsung is currently the only memory chip maker that is producing 8-gigabyte (GB) HBM2 (second generation high bandwidth memory) chips. In order to keep up with demand from a growing field of customers and applications, Samsung is ramping up production of its 8GB HBM2 chips, which will find their way into systems... Read more...
AMD’s Vega graphics architecture is fast approaching a retail release, but unfortunately for gamers, the first available cards will be the professional workstation-targeted Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. If you’re in the market for such a card, preorders are now open from at least two retailers — one based in the U.S... Read more...
Earlier this morning, we learned that AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics cards will be announced May 31st at Computex, with general availability occurring on June 5th. It was also revealed that the will be three SKUs at launch: Core, Eclipse and Nova. According to the latest leaked information, at least one member of the... Read more...
AMD is on the cusp of releasing its hotly anticipated Radeon RX Vega graphics card lineup, which will be debut sometime this quarter. If all goes well for AMD, its Vega release will once again make it competitive with NVIDIA in the high-end GPU segment just as Ryzen made the company competitive with Intel in the... Read more...
It's taken a few years, but Intel has finally started sampling to customers its Stratix 10, the industry's first 14-nanometer field programmable array (FPGA). This is something chip designer Altera tapped Intel to do back in 2013, though it hit delays along the way. Nevertheless, when Intel acquired Altera last year... Read more...
We saw first generation High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) enter the enthusiast arena with the arrival of AMD’s Radeon R9 Fury lineup of graphics cards. HBM promised incredible performance with equally impressive low power consumption, and largely delivered on those claims. NVIDIA introduced us to HBM2 with its Tesla P100... Read more...
NVIDIA just pulled the wraps off its fastest GPU and compute engine yet: the Tesla P100. This new GPU powerhouse is based on NVIDIA’s next generation Pascal architecture, which means that it’s built on a 16nm FinFET process. But even with thoroughly modern FinFET process tech, the Tesla P100’s die size measures 600mm2... Read more...
The big news yesterday from the AMD camp was with the official announcement of the Radeon Pro Duo, which was previously known as the Radeon R9 Fury X2. The water-cooled graphics card features two R9 Fury GPU cores clocked at 1GHz all operating within a 350W power envelope. But of course, we’re always looking to see... Read more...
Most of us were introduced to High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) DRAM courtesy of AMD’s Fury family of graphics cards, each of which sports 4GB of HBM. HBM allows Fury GPUs to tout an impressive 512GB/sec of memory bandwidth, but perhaps that just isn’t enough to fuel the next generation of graphics cards in the... Read more...
Although NVIDIA revealed some high level information on its next generation Pascal GPU architecture earlier this year, the company revealed some more interesting details this week at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference in Japan. NVIDIA announced that Pascal will have close to a 2x performance-per-watt improvement over... Read more...
