    It's down to the standard GDDR5x arrangement to accommodate the high bus speeds, it just does not fit with the standard mounting.

    That's quite an intimate question on an unreleased product.

    It's more of what answer can you expect on something like that :p

    It's going to come down to what the memory bus wants to do and the recommended layout from Nvidia who used to sort this themselves.

    Now it's in the lap of the board makers it becomes hard to justify the expense of going off spec.

    HBM2 will be used I'm assuming... Will that be compatible with current gen products... Not many people have the money to buy a whole new product every year or 2. Some people are just getting to buying 980Ms now as they have dropped in price... But 1080s won't be an option for these people as they won't work with many previous gen laptops. So hopefully Volta will be better :)

    Considering the usual issues of MXM along it's probably best to take a wait and see approach.

    Rather expect GDDR6. Cheaper and not much slower.
    Edit. See also Samsung starts GDDR6 production that offers bandwidth of 18Gbit/s

    8GB of HBM2 would be awesome since 4gb isn't enough these days and it'll free up some space on the board.
