TSMC gets the deal

Nvidia is to launch the Pascal GPU next year as a successor of the Maxwell GPU and originally it had been suspected that it would be made in Samsung's fabs using its 14nm technology.

Focused on low power

Greenland is the successor of Fiji, and we don’t think it will be radically new core. The main goal for Greenland is to bring more performance per watt to AMD GPUs in 2016.

Significantly smaller than GDDR5

We had a chance to see the Hynix HBM memory of the future, and even see a next generation HBM2 wafer with many of these next-generation dies.

Interposer it is

Just as it was easy to figure out from Pascal renders, Nvidia’s new GPU architecture is using the 2.5D memory approach, the same one that is expected from AMD’s upcoming Fiji card.
