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.
Cure diseases with GPU computing power
This year’s Graphics Technology Conference featured a lot of companies that want to solve many of the worlds’ problems using GPUs.
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.

We played with one
Intel has been working hard to become a significant player in the mobile market, with very limited success.
Thin, very reminiscent of iPad mini
Nokia created a lot of buzz when it announced its N1 tablet in late 2014. The tablet looked well designed and Nokia promised a price under $250.
4GB was a limitation, coming in early summer
AMD Fiji is definitely an exciting chip, and many AMD fans are on their toes, eager to see AMD’s first interposer 2.5D High Bandwidth Memory HBM chip.
Factory reset of the watch helps
Apple has finally launched the Apple Wath and all of a sudden the world will be crazy about smartwatches. This actually plays quite well for Google, as there is no doubt that the sales of Android Wear devices will spike as well.
