    Add it to the new Nvidia Shield TV and I'll buy it :)

    Wholly WOWO!!!

    This is truly something to behold!!

    10,000 years of engineering!!! Amazing how we can use compute power of today in order to attain information of tomorrow!!

    Love to see which CPU Nvidia is using to only get 200GB/s of throughput?!?

    Ummmmmmmm..... Pretty sure my 3900X is capable of handling information in the realm of thousands of gigabytes per second?!?! [​IMG]

    Maybe I'm seeing something differently?!?

    Maybe?

    900 GB/s connection between Grace and NVIDIA GPUs to enable 30x higher aggregate bandwidth compared to today's leading servers

    They are talking about the bandwidth between interfaces, not cache bandwidth. Also why is your picture so massive.

    The poor thing needs 4,000 pixels of height for a single Aida64 screenie.

    It's ARM - says so in the first sentence of the article.
    Even if we were to disregard the clarification made earlier, we're talking data centers here, so efficiency is often more important than total performance.

    "but my Ryzen :mad::mad::mad::mad:"

    I'm sure this will be exceptional for very specific workloads only and just okay for anything else.
    you don't need it.

    If you slice off the top section of the chip, you also get nvidia's next Tegra ;)

    Thank you. Like it says in my comment. "Maybe I missed something?"

    But asshats on here want to take it as if they're the engineer behind it all defending their precious it would seem.

    Comments are meant for clarification if need be not everyone is an engineer/professional on the subject.

    Seems as if guru3d is turning into an opinionated cesspool IMO....

    "The Poor thing"??

    I'm not an imgur engineer, so I can't attest to how they format their uploads.

    And your comment is making light of mine how...? Other than being a placeholder for idiocy?

    Just wondering as all I stated was what I knew of the situation. And you're here with what?

    Because that's the way imgur formatted it? Didn't care to crop it from my phone before uploading? Usually it's a link to click on, but yeah I don't know.

    The mistake you are making is that you are comparing the cache performance of your CPU with the interconnect speed of the CPU to the GPU. Your Ryzen chip will only achieve maximally PCI-E 4.0 x16 speeds when communicating to a GPU (if that supports PCE-E 4.0 as well).

    At the moment that is maximally 32 GB/s (in one direction, but the bus supports simultaneous transfers in both directions at those speeds). There is most likely some overhead (I've tested an A100 on PCI-E 3.0, which could maximally achieve 16 GB/s, but that doesn't go beyond 13.2 GB/s), so expect a real world value in the region of 28-30 GB/s.

    So the 200 GB/s you are quoting is around 7x what your Ryzen can achieve. And in the slides that I saw they quoted a 500 GB/s number, so more like around 17x.

    And thank you for the information and your time it took you to share.

    Thank you so much.

    Don't be giving them any ideas.
