Another snippet from the VentureBeat transcript of NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang's Q&A session with journalists confirms the firm has no plans to adopt HBM for its consumer products. Huang states there's nothing wrong with HBM, which is used by rival AMD for high-end consumer products, but that it's way too expensive for consumer products. He likes GDDR6, which is used by the Turing-based cards, a lot more:
Question: What do you think about the viability of HBM (high bandwidth memory) in consumer products?

Huang: It’s just way more expensive for consumer products. But memory prices will come down. There’s nothing wrong with HBM. I love HBM. But I love GDDR6 (graphics memory) way more.
