NVIDIA and SK Hynix Vision: Redefining GPU-VRAM Interaction

SK Hynix’s primary goal is a radical redesign of the constant interaction between GPU and VRAM to significantly boost graphic subsystem performance. To achieve this, the company is enlisting CPU and GPU design experts, collaborating closely with NVIDIA engineers to find the optimal solution for memory-GPU communication.

The strategy devised by SK Hynix engineers resembles AMD’s 3D V-Cache technology, allowing chiplets to be stacked on top of each other rather than side by side. This stacking significantly increases level 3 cache capacity while reducing latency within the subsystem.

Nvidia and SK Hynix Redesigning GPU VRAM

SK Hynix and NVIDIA’s joint strategy involves directly stacking HBM4 memory onto the GPU to optimize their communication. However, this intricate design requires a deep overhaul not only of the interface facilitating their communication but also the manufacturing process for both memory and GPU.

Collaboration and Future Implications

Eliminating the traditional intermediary interface involves GPU manufacturers like TSMC or Samsung. It’s likely that in this project, SK Hynix and NVIDIA are working closely with one of these companies responsible for manufacturing NVIDIA’s next-generation GPUs.

This breakthrough has the potential to benefit AI application chips and gaming GPUs. The HBM4 memory will utilize a 2,048-bit interface directly connected to the GPU. However, concerns about overall packaging cooling have been raised, indicating potential challenges despite the promising advancements. Eventually, distinctions between memory and chips might fade in the coming years.

The collaboration between SK Hynix and NVIDIA represents a groundbreaking effort to redefine the core interaction between GPU and VRAM, potentially reshaping the landscape of graphics processing.
