HBM3 memory and DDR5 memory speeds have been revealed and it seems that both HBM2 memory and DDR5 will feature double the speed as compared to the current generation HBM2 and DDR4 memory. These are the initial specs and could change over time so keep that in mind. Th final product could have different speeds but that does not mean we don’t keep hopes up.
These HBM3 memory and DDR5 memory speeds specs are great in theory but we will have to wait and see what we get in the end and keep in mind that these new standards aren’t going to be coming out before 2019. Seeing how 2017 is almost at an end, that does not seem too far away. AMD has just started using HBM2 and Nvidia is not likely to switch to the new standard any time soon.
Same goes for DDR4, the standard is relatively new and people are not going to be jumping to the new standard any time soon. Keeping in mind the prices of RAM DDR5 could be very expensive indeed and that might discourage people from buying DDR5. You can check out the specs of both below.
It will be interesting to see how well this new tech will perform as compared to current standards and how they affect gaming. Both memories are based on the 7nm process. Seeing how AMD Vega uses HBM2 memory it is possible that after the AMD Vega refresh Navi could be based on HBM3 memory but that is a long shot and we do not know that for sure. That would be interesting indeed.
