Default NVIDIA VOLTA Announced

Fair warning to all, I'll be reporting trolling dickery, had enough of it in this sub forum. Be good...

Quote:
Today at their annual GPU Technology Conference keynote, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced NVIDIA’s first Volta GPU and Volta products. Taking aim at the very high end of the compute market with their first products, NVIDIA has laid out a very aggressive technology delivery schedule in order to bring about another major leap in GPU deep learning performance.
http://www.anandtech.com/show/11367/...ator-announced

The first GPU to be detailed is the GV100

5367 Cuda Cores
HBM2 memory - 4093bit
815mm2 die (apparently the biggest ever nvidia gpu, and the max size the fab will support)
21.1b transistors
12nm FFN fab

what a beast.

Be interesting to see when consumer gets added to the public roadmap just how powerful it will be.

Hopefully not the biggest ever cards to go with it

With how nvidia have talked about it in their release I'm guessing the GV100 isn't the consumer chip, seems like the one that's been detailed is a datacenter chip so I guess we'll see it on a consumer board at the back end of the volta product life cycle.

In the article linked in the OP it also suggests that even the detailed one isn't the full fat chip so they're still saving a little bit extra for later... crazy.

Yeah that will be the intention of unveiling it now, to keep some buzz up around their brand while we're still a year out from seeing a new consumer GPU from them. Getting some serious per-GPU grunt for compute work now.

yes and no, that is the ultra high end compute part that I and (most likely) you will never buy, who know what the cut down consumer part will look like as I dont think it will have these Tensor cores no it.

it will probably come down to what their yields are like -- which as in the article will be low on such a massive die.

For sure, the detailed gpu is the new 'volta' datacentre chip. Pascal was a pretty significant bump up from maxwell I feel like we won't see that big a jump again so soon on the consumer level... but who knows.

I remember the days when I couldn't physically fit some of their cards in my case Modifications had to be made.

If you want to be an early adopter, you can get hold of the Tesla version in Q3.. well 8 of them actually. You'd need to be keen though..

Quote:
The first product to ship with Tesla V100 will be the NVIDIA DGX-1V, the Volta version of their DGX server. Similar to their Pascal launch, starting with DGX sales allows NVIDIA to sell 8 GPUs in one go, and for a premium at that. A DGX-1V will set you back a cool $149,000. The payoff? It ships in Q3, whereas OEM P100 designs won’t be available until Q4.
