Mid-range NVIDIA Pascal GPUs seem to use GDDR5(X)

TechPowerUp points out that NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang showed off a Drive PX module at the GPU Technology Conference. This board uses mid-range Pascal GPUs and based on the design it seems that NVIDIA's mid-range Pascal GPU solutions will stick with GDDR5 (or possibly GDDR5X) instead of adopting HBM2.
This chip looks a lot more conventional than the fancy HBM2-infused multi-chip module that's at the heart of the Tesla P100. Its package is a traditional green fiberglass substrate with a rectangular die at the center; and is surrounded by conventional-looking GDDR5-class memory chips (which could very well be GDDR5X).
