Eight Tesla V100 accelerators equivalent to 800 desktop CPUs
Nvidia had quite a few announcements packed into a single GTC keynote this year, but among the more performance-oriented of them includes a refreshed DGX-1 supercomputer powered by eight Volta-based Tesla V100 GPUs.
Nvidia is quite happy with the performance of its Geforce GTX 1080 Ti and the new Titan Xp cards, but it seems that it plans to tell us a bit more about the Volta.
But will it be too late?
Rumours are starting to come in that Nvidia’s coming Volta will give AMD's Radeon RX Vega a good kicking thanks to Taiwan Semiconductor’s 12 nm fabrication process over Vega's 14 nm.
TSMC’s 12nm named and shamed
There have been lots of rumours about what transistor lithography Nvidia will be giving their next-gen Volta graphics cards, but it is starting to look like it is tapping TSMC its “new” 12nm process.
There is more to life than pixels
Nvidia just announced its fiscal Q3 2017 (not a typo Ed.) and the company reported record revenue of $2 billion, up 54 percent from a year ago. This is finally proof that Nvidia is more than a GPU outfit, as it finally expanded beyond its core business - gaming and professional graphics.
Xavier is the future of all models
A few days ago, Nvidia announced that its highly anticipated Tesla model 3 comes with Nvidia Drive PX2 hardware and that the car will have all it needs for complete autonomous self-driving.
While Vega sticks with 14nm
A little birdie told us that Nvidia is giving its Volta the 16nm FinFET treatment. This product uses stacked DRAM too so it looks like the whole thing will be pretty bleeding edge.
GTC 2015: Volta back in roadmap, due in 2018
Pascal is Nvidia’s next generation architecture and it is coming after Maxwell of course. The company says it will launch next year, but details are still sketchy.
