    For me the single biggest thing in the AMD presentation was HBM memory.
    HBM v1 is nice, but HBM v2 will probably be even nicer.

    If AMD developed and owns (the patents on) HBM memory, that could mean AMD is back in the game.
    Not only against NVidia but also against Intel.

    Will Nvidia or Intel be able to use HBM memory ?

      Anyone else think that if AMD's driver got it's act together out of the door the fury nano would be perfect for the steam boxes!

        Yes. Nvidia are releasing their first HBM cards in winter 2016 if I recall correctly.

          For me the most interesting card was the Fury Nano. Too bad that they will launch it last.

          The biggest let-down was the R7 370, basically three years old tech sold as the "new era of PC gaming". Plus it exposed previous promises by AMD that all new products would support FreeSync as false.

          And no, no Kepler and Fermi based cards, nor Tegra K1 will be supported.
          Actually they did even worse.
          There was an opentegra driver in development for their older Tegra chipsets, but then NVidia hired its developer. Following that the project was abandoned, no commits in almost a year.

            Well from specs HBM has about 33% more bandwidth over current Nvidia solutions but i highly doubt that the Fury X will be much faster than the 980 Ti as you often need special driver optimisations to fully use the potential.

              If enough hardware is exposed for OpenGL 3.x, I'd be very surprised if someone wasn't messing with, say, GalliumTen. I'd rather see that than something stuck on Catalyst.

                DX10 means OpenGL 4 hardware. If you have got this then you could think about it.

                  Anyway if anyone is missed presentation
                  Interesting video. If nothing else this technology will eventually move into all AMD products. Here I mean the HBM. I can see APU's coming very shortly where the addition of external memory isn't even possible.

                    Why does the AMD marketing keep saying "online gaming"? Do they fear the products would be perceived as "less cool" if they even implied they work with offline games as well?

                      Transition probably does not work that fast like most people think, otherwise we will already have Wayland since 2008. by default on Linux Desktops and people already working on Trashland since then

                      Not sure how much more, but HBM is more pricey and also comes with limited capacity... so there will be probably be more then couple generations until GDDR5 fully dissapear

                      Yeah for APUs should be good to have a little HBM in there to unleash bandwidth problems, but that should also cost more
