    So 1st 'real world' results for the SMP technology within Pascal benchmarked at Computerbase.de.
    They see around 20% gain when using it with 3 screens playing iRacing, which sort of aligns with the developers of Obduction who has said the VR version gains are between 20-30% (interesting gains when compared to 3 screens of iRacing).
    Not bad considering how new the technology is.
    Here is the Computerbase.de article: https://www.computerbase.de/2016-09/pascal-smp-iracing-benchmark/

    Cheers

    Slightly offtopic, but obduction is absolutely stunning. I had no idea what I was getting into when I started that game, jaw-dropping.

    yes, but too double vram and certainly many things who are not " on the " Titan X GP102 are enabled no ?

    I don't understand the logic behind GDDR5 on the P40, the P4 I understand given it's low clocks (impressive power efficiency though)

    supply, also the need for the more bandwidth might not be there?

    What is surprising is just how long the 11 and 12 Gb/s have been in sampling status, nearly 8 months now.
    Wonder if it is not going to plan or trying to reduce production costs before being available as mass production.

    Cheers

    That impossible, no way, 24GB GDDR5X was demoed working at SIGGRAPH last month. Not shipping yet, though, probably because as you say that dense chip is not widely available yet.

    Samsung mentioned at the time they went into mass production with their 4GB HBM package (that was late January 2016) that they are planning to produce 8GB package this year.
    I have not seen any news indicating whether this is still achievable or suffering delays.

    Cheers
    Edit:
    LOL NVM some mindblank by me as you guys are talking about GDDR5X :)

    As a reminder, I believe GDDR5X is pegged to eventually be available in 4Gb, 6Gb, 12Gb, and 16Gb capacities alongside the current 10Gbps 8Gb stuff that we know and love.

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/10193/micron-begins-to-sample-gddr5x-memory

    So a 384-bit chip like GP102 could eventually support 24GB of GDDR5X without clamshelling via high capacity 16Gb chips. Anyone know about the timeline for that?

    EDIT As we're tangentially on the topic, does anyone know what GDDR6 is supposed to bring? Based on Samsung's discussions at hot chips, it superficially appears similar to gddr5x. But I think only micron got on board for gddr5x, so I figure sammy has to have their own plans for new gddr-type memory down the road.

    Very similar layout to Maxwell, too. In the same gallery there's a shot of a GM204.

    Indeed, thinking about it the die shot of the GM 204 that Nvidia released was thus a complete joke.
