HBM1 vs HBM2 vs HBM3 | Difference between HBM1 HBM2 HBM3
This page compares HBM1 vs HBM2 vs HBM3 and mentions difference between HBM1, HBM2 and HBM3.
The HBM stands for High Bandwidth Memory. It is manufactured by Samsung as well as Hynix. It is non-planar type with 3D shape in the form of cube/cuboid. The memory chips are stacked to form cube structure. It occupies less space and hence can be placed near GPU.
It offers many benefits over GDDR memory types such as less power comsumption, smaller size, higher bandwidth, better performance and so on.
HBM memory is called as stacked memory or compact memory. The operating speed is about 1 Gbps. Due to its wide bus size, it supports much higher bandwidth compare to GDDR5 memory.
The memory bandwidth can be up to 128 GB/s per stack. It supports 1GB capacity per stack and 4GB per package. Moreover it consumes less power compare to GDDR5 and GDDR5X.
It is the second generation of HBM memory which offers higher speed and bandwidth. It consists of 8 DRAM dies per stack with transfer rates up to 2 Gbps.
It supports bandwidth of 256 GB/s per stack due to 1024 bit interface which is double of HBM1. HBM2 offers more capacity than HBM1 which is about 8GB per stack.
Nvidia Tesla P100 card uses HBM2 memory. It is used by various GPU architectures such as Vega, Volta and Pascal.
It is successor to HBM2 memory type. It offers more features than HBM2 type. It is faster, consume low power and supports higher capacity compared to HBM2 memory.
It supports 64 GB of VRAM to be used in graphics cards and memory bandwidth of upto 512 GB/s per stack.
