Samsung starts producing next-gen HBM2 dubbed Aquabolt

The new High Bandwidth Memory is the industry's first to deliver 2.4 gigabits-per-second (Gbps) data transfer speed per pin, and is aimed at the supercomputing and the graphics card market. 'We will continue to reinforce our command of the DRAM market by assuring a stable supply of HBM2 worldwide, in accordance with the timing of anticipated next-generation system launches by our customers.

The successor to the groundbreaking first generation "Flarebolt", the Samsung Aquabolt HBM2 will deliver a whopping 2.4 gigabits per second (Gbps) of memory per pin, making it the industry's fastest DRAM performance and paving the way for even faster calculations on the latest supercomputers, AI solutions and enabling even more powerful graphics cards to come out on the market.

Clearly viewing HBM as the logical future of high-performance RAM, Samsung has announced it has ramped up mass production on a HBM2 variant, codenamed Aquabolt, which now sits as the market's fastest 8GB HBM2 implementation at 2.4Gb/s per pin for a total of 307GB/s per package - almost double its first-generation HBM2 implementation, Flarebolt. Samsung's figures for the Aquabolt are nothing but impressive: 307 GBps data bandwidth for a single package and 1.2 TBps in a system that uses four 2nd-generation HBM2 packages. For the greater speeds achieved Samsung had to tweak the TSV design while minimising inter-layer skew. A single 8 GB HBM2 package is made using eight vertically interconnected 8 Gb HBM2 dies. Furthermore, the firm's engineers implemented a design with an increased number of thermal bumps between the dies - providing greater thermal control. Also, the new HBM2 includes an additional protective layer at the bottom, which increases the package's overall physical strength.
