    "Self driving cards", an era where your graphics card writes its own driver software.

    According to that graph, we should be seeing GDDR5X around 13GT/s now. Instead, we just saw the launch of 11GT/s Nvidia cards - a far smaller increase in speed than proposed a year ago. I haven't seen those OC'd to much more than 12 either. Makes me wonder if GDDR5X development hasn't gone as well as initially thought.

    Wait, isn't this for anything other than new graphics cards? I thought both AMD and Nvidia were going to start using HBM (or a version of)?

    They will. But it's expensive and not well suited for all cards.

    an expensive and stupid hard process to make it.
    also, HBM is most likely the amd's only trump card and I really hope they dont just give it out like pretty much anything else

    HBM is already present in some nVidia cards, it's not an AMD exclusive.
