    Presumably the pcie layering is simply to get under the patent umbrella.

    I think high bw CPU mem access is not for x86 cpus', just power8 and derivatives.

    And surely only available on "HPC " systems even if finally it make is way to some x86 based system ( Cray? )

    Not directly related to Pascal or Volta, but should prove interesting nonetheless.

    Audio is very low, and was uploaded in 2012. I do hope to find something more recent.

    Pretty sure the latest roadmap from March 2014 showed Pascal introducing stacked DRAM in 2016.

    ok, completely forget this roadmap.. i was ask me if we could expect this for 2015 GPU's. but effectively the roadmap is 100% clear. ( i was mix it with the old roadmap, and forget plans have change in between )

    It says 3D rather than stacked, is there a difference between the two or is Nvidia just using a different term for the same thing?

    I think it's basically the same thing but with differences in architecture (ie, NVLink).

    4x is "four orders of magnitude" :!:
    I think that article was submitted a bit too quickly.
    One order of magnitude, maybe (there's no universal definition of what is if, but at least 4 is bigger than 2, ln 10 or "e"!)

    Where is the "3x larger capacity" coming from? Are the memory modules more dense somehow?

    In the physical sciences I'm aware of, one order of magnitude is taken to mean a factor of ten. So four orders of magnitude would be 10000. A factor 4 is just over half an order of magnitude.
