Will be the first video cards to feature GDDR6.

Seems like we've been using GDDR5 for like 8+ years so it's a good time as any for a change.

Well I guess it's not "guaranteed" to feature GDDR6 but there's a good chance.

sad that AMD has such a lockdown on HBM2.

Yeah, a memory manufacturer let slip (or not?) a month or two ago that a new high-end video card would be released in early 2018 featuring GDDR6 memory.

I wouldn't be surprised if NVIDIA stretches it out a little bit.

HBM 2 is in low stock to anybody not named AMD and so far it doesn't really seem to be doing much for gaming, so yeah not shocking Nvidia is just jumping to GDDR6 instead of f***ing around with HBM

HBM2 has shown fairly consistently that its the superior memory, especially for higher resolution gaming. its a shame nvidia isn't using it and i really hope its because AMD is hoarding it not because nvidia wants to spite anything AMD was involved in developing.

why are Nvidia cards cranking out the same performance in high resolutions if its such a superior memory? it's one thing if AMD just isn't using it to its full potential, but so far GDDR5 is keeping up against what is supposed to be the thing that makes GDDR5 obsolete.

you answered your own question. look at comparisons between the fury x and the 980Ti, or hell even the 1080Ti. fury x outperforms the 980Ti at 4k and comes much closer to the 1080Ti.

AMD isn't making cards that can render as quickly as nvidia, but HBM2 lets the rendered images load and unload much faster then GDDR5/5x/6. rendering 4k comes much closer to GDDR5/5x/6 saturation point then it does to HBM2.

Which means it's way ahead of its time. GDDR is still obviously able to game very well at 4K and it'll be another generation or two before people can reasonably expect to push things further than 4K/60 FPS.

AMD jumped on HBM way too early. It's painfully obvious after observing Vega. If AMD could have secured primary rights to the technology and developed it while still utilizing GDDR, I feel that Vega would have looked much different and/or would have released much sooner. But I'm guessing that AMD didn't have the resources to do that or their engineers were shortsighted about HBM.
