    Wait a minute.... So, are they telling us that 6 of these, would net you the 10th position of the TOP500 Supercomputers? And with 15, the 3rd ? And...

    Imagine with just 60, then ? Jensen is even openly admitting it: "....machine translation reaching human capabilities ..."

    NVidia is gonna take oveee... 'How did my foil hat got up there? Apologies. :p

    They are probably only counting the deep-learning flops, not the generic flops. The tensors cores on Volta give it a huge boost in deep learning flops.

    My thought too at first but I will quote the article: "...the first single server capable of delivering two petaflops of computational power...".

    Unless we missed something, that clearly implies computation.

    This is what happens when there is no competition.

    Yup agreed. It's kinda sad. Still waiting for my 4k 60fps ultra card.

    In the same boat, my Fury is doing okish (is semi unlocked)

    I was thinking to buy NVidia's next flagship model on release as tired of waiting.... but after GPP I am going to be waiting a while longer it seems.

    Someone has to do it, might as well be me.

    But can it play Crysis?

    Good thing we have custom resolutions at least. Lots of titles actually do play at 60fps ultra 4k on a 1080ti but for the ones that don't, running them in either 3456x1944 or 3584x2016 can usually play on ultra at 60fps and looks pretty damn decent on a 4k screen. That's what I'm doing for now and for the foreseeable future until nvidia releases new cards. Also reserving 3200x1800 for those poorly optimized games or extremely demanding games in the future.

    Not tried that angle, is a good idea.

    I've been mostly playing through my back catalogue of older Steam games that run great at 4K on my Fury. Is a good excuse to get through some of them :)
