Samsung has started production of its second generation HBM2, dubbed Aquabolt. Samsung Electronics further mentioned that that the introduction of a faster HBM2 module "should accelerate the expansion of supercomputing and the graphics card market".

The new solution, Aquabolt, which is the company's 2nd-generation 8GB HBM2 DRAM to deliver a 2.4 gigabits-per-second (Gbps) data transfer speed per pin at 1.2 volt, can process 307GB of data, which is equivalent to 61 full HD 5GB movies, in one second. As for bandwidth, we're looking at around 300MBps per pin, which on a 1024-bit memory bus should provide around 307GB/sec per package, times 4 bringing us to a insane 1.2TB/sec of memory bandwidth.

While we do not know when these chips will appear on actual products, Samsung claims that it will supply the new 2nd generation 8GB HBM2 chips to its global IT customers.

As graphics and other workloads move more and more to using large amounts of data, the need for faster memory and more efficient will grow. Samsung said it has achieved 2.4Gbps for the first time in the industry by using its core technologies such as "signal transmission optimized designing" and "heating control". A single 8 GB HBM2 package is made using eight vertically interconnected 8 Gb HBM2 dies.

An 8GB HBM2 Aquabolt package can support 307 gigabytes-per-second (GBps) data bandwidth, achieving 9.6 times faster data transmission than an 8 gigabit (Gb) GDDR5 chip, says Samsung.

When it comes to performance, Samsung Electronics' second generation HBM2 memory controller features a "pin speed" of 2.4Gbps at 1.2V. To keep temperatures in check, Samsung increased the number of thermal bumps between the HBM2 dies and even bolstered the package's overall physical strength by adding an additional protective layer at the bottom.
