    Are you sure that's the right link ? That one just talked about new *silicon*, which I think is still the case.

      Indeed, that was the wrong link, thanks for pointing it out. The correct one is http://techreport.com/news/26919/fre...ling-next-year

        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 ?
        I checked HBM out on Wikipedia, and you seem correct. HBM was developed by AMD and Hynix. It seems to be built by JEDEC however. That is neat, an extra income source for AMD to better compete with NVidia.

          Ahh, OK -- that article used the term "hardware" which internally means "silicon" (and I'm sure that's what Richard was thinking) but externally is kind of ambiguous. Bleah.

            In the 3xx dGPU lineup that means R9 380 and the Fury variants would use amdgpu IIRC.
            Another new word gfxip8..... I kinda like it. EDIT: now just consolidate all conventions to this one.

              He, he, one single oldest gen card in whole current card and APU series does not support freesync... that is probably the biggest let-down for sure, one black sheep in the family

              That will probably just be biggest deal for price to go down

                Well, I don't know where the dies will be fabricated, probably in dresden germany by the global foundry guys. But the wafers get diffused and packaged somewhere in singapore... That's where the HBM magic is really happening... I'm still confused on how AMD is dealing with the different heights caused by the HBM stack. The heatspeaders will require some extreme precision machining.

                  I thought Kaveri supported Freesync -- where are you getting your info ?

                      Which info? Who said Kaveri does not support it?

                      I think you should turn on sarcasm detector and read again
