    Doubt it... look at the bandwidth it is insane. I guess Vega for example would need to be tweaked to use it

    So basically its a waste of time for the mass market then,since it will mean HBM2 will still be a niche technology and GDDR5/GDDR6 will be still be more widely used then!!

    What's the point of a second generation of HBM2? Why can't they make life easy and call it HBM3, or HBM2.5, or HBMaybeyougetsomeofthisone2?

    I don't think it's a waste of time. Just a tad early for mass market

    The issue of HBM is not manufacturing technology but an issue of demand and Nvidia sabotaged global HBM production by not going into it early like AMD but thanks to intel things are about to change.

    It's a good way to use up resources to deny you are purposely limiting current, slower ram stock and pushing up prices.

    Same reason you don't call faster DDR4 sticks DDR4.1, HBM is a spec so if these adhere to the HBM2 spec then that is what they are.

    Wonder if the HBM2 spec defines die height? Adding extra layers to that could cause issues (and the corollary to that, extra rigidity might give the manufacturers a bit more leeway for rough handling and so improve package yields - everything for a reason)
