Anandtech has posted an excellent article on the design considerations and benefits that AMD will reap with the introduction of High Bandwidth Memory for their GPUs. The approach taken by AMD to improve performance while reducing the power budget for high-performance/high-speed memory commonly found in modern graphical solutions is a step in the right direction, and will help with power consumption when it’s applied to mobile solution implementations. It will be interesting to see how other players in this space address the balance of speed and power consumption.
