    if you could, you'd need a cooler about the size of the pyramid of Cheops.

    146Bn transistors!

    I remember when transistors first appeared. The first computer I used was a home-built analog thingy. Essentially, a patch panel, a series of wires a bit like an old WW2-era telephone exchange and the 'output' was a waveform on an oscilloscope. And, of course, taking an old TV apart to harvest the vacuum tubes (and yes, I am and was aware of the wallop the circuitry could impart to the unwary.

    From that, to 146Bn transistors, within my lifetime. When the old chinese curse about "living in interesting times" was thought up, well, we sure have. And if all that is in the last 50-60 years, it makes me wonder what things will be like 50 - 60 years from now .... assuming we haven't blown ourselves off the face of the planet, or all drowned in the floodwaters from melting polar ice. Or found a version of something Covid-like that's far more deadly. And on that cheery note, goodnite all.

    lol, yep.

    But I saw that image of the APU surrounded by HBM die and was hit with deja-vue. Bit of Googling and there is was, so many years ago AMD said they were looking at a big APU with lots of HBM.

    Not like this though. This thing is quite a monster. 8 HBM3 stacks, that's a total 8192 bit wide memory giving about 8TB/s of total bandwidth to memory. That should drive the threadripper sized 24 core cluster nicely. I suspect it can run Crysis just fine.

    Wonder if they will ever trickle down anything to us mortals more like this original post, though Nvidia have been shipping HBM3 for a year now in their datacenter parts and no sign of it re-appearing in consumer devices (and at Nvidia's prices they can't really claim they can't afford it).

    Things like this will almost certainly 'trickle down' to consumers (or at least prosumers) at some point - but by that time it'll be old hat, with some other technology superceding it

    lol, well there is that.

    I suppose the 3D cache on CPUs and similarly the memory controller chiplets with lots of cache on-board for GPUs take enough sting out of memory accesses that HBM loses most of its advantage. But then those are both fairly advanced chip packaging setups, like HBM.

    ... but then for most consumers, what we already have is overkill for Wordle.
