Between Financial Analyst Day 2015, their briefing on High Bandwidth Memory, and now a carefully seeded hardware sample to DICE developer and uber guru Johan Andersson, AMD is making sure that no one is left unaware that they will be introducing a new video card this quarter.

With both Computex and the AMD-sponsored PC Gaming Show taking place next month, June should be a busy time in the PC hardware industry.

    I think I read that they are only going to have 3 Display Ports and a single HDMI, though you can get adapters pretty cheap. Reply

    Yup. HDMI can send a DVI signal through, so passive adapters shouldn't cost much. Reply

    Well, I don't really know about this but I tried passive hdmi-dvi adapter for my gigabyte brix and it didn't work.
    Maybe you guys can try it first but if it doesn't work, then probably it is time for monitor upgrade?

    I've run my DVI monitors on a cheap ($7, IIRC) HDMI to DVI adapter for a LONG time.

    The HDMI video signal is effectively just the DVI signal using a different physical connector.

    Plenty of people around with 2560x1600 30" screens that are DL-DVI only.

    That requires expensive active adaptors that run to $100+ and introduce latency.

    I haven't found any cheap HDMI or DP to dual link DVI adapter.
    Which is the only input on, relatively popular, cheap korean IPS/PLS 27" 2560x1440 +90Hz monitors.

    Because DL-DVI requires active signal conversion since the number of lanes is different. Reply

    1GB of GDDR5 takes 672mm sq
    1GB of HBM takes 35mm sq

    And that's not even considering that the 35mm2 of the HMB is split into four vertical stacks. HMB is awesome! I love that high end cards are going to be smaller now, and hope it trickles into mid range cards really fast.

    *I mean, it would be to scale to 4GB, whereas the GDDR5 would have to spread out more. Reply

    To cool off 35mm2 with 4 times the height will be a lot more complicated than cooling 672mm2. Reply
