The arrival of Samsung allows NVIDIA to overcome supply problems that would have to Hynix in the future with the development of HBM2 memory problem is further aggravated by knowing that the memory manufacturer would give priority to AMD. Now there should be no illusions, because if the production of the first Pascal chips will take place early next year, so GPUs will not reach the market until the end of the 2016. The new NVIDIA chips will further enhance the performance of Pascal with the use of technology NVLink, interconnection technology that promises to increase data exchange “at rates of 5 to 12 times faster over traditional PCI-Express 3.0 interconnection “.
