    AMD VEGA with GDDR6 would be fun. I'm ready & raring to invest. Come on Monday...

    I think its time we move away from GDDR technology, HBM is more energy efficient, uses less space and is way faster. AMD, INTEL and NVIDIA should forget about GDDR in the next 2 years.

    HBM/HBM2 are too expensive. If you want the price of your cards to go up, ask for HBM2. If you want cheap cards ask for the next rev of GDDR (6 in this case) which is cheap and easier to produce so no hiccups on volume from the get go. HBM killed AMD's last vid cards (margins and profit). It is sad AMD did this again. There is a reason NV has 60% margins and can sell TONS of cards for lots of profit. Memory is NOT their problem and never holds up getting crap to shelf. HBM however, causes mass delays (see last gen and Vega delays), which in turn hurts INCOME or worse lets your enemy get their next cards out so you end up competing against completely different stuff (IE, vega should be competing with 1080, not 1080ti, but it's way late).

    No need to pay extra for bandwidth you don't need yet. GDDR6 should get to at least 16Gbps at some point and will likely get us through 10nm cards just fine.
