The next Geforce - and its actual codename is still secret - will use GDDR5X memory as the best solution around. We can only speculate that the card is even Volta architecture Geforce VbG. The big chip that would replace the 1080 ti could end up with the Gx104 codename. It is still too early for the rumored GDDR6, that will arrive next year at the earliest.AMD on the other hand made a big bet on HBM2 as the company's upcoming Vega cards will use this new and expensive type of memory. This has likely not done AMD a lot of good as it's rumored that HBM2 supply constraints have contributed to the multiple delays suffered by Vega.
NVIDIA has no plans to use HBM2 on next-gen GeForce cards
