    Over at GDC Nvidia has shown the Testla V100 processor, this is a Tensor core based GPU based on Volta architecture. Tesla Volta V100 was made on TSMC’s 12nm finfet process ....

    Hang on, did I read that right: "120 Teraflops"!! That's 120,000 Gigaflops!! GTX 1080ti is 11,340 Gigaflops. This card has 10 times more processing - what!!!!???

    120 Tensor TeraFLOPS of performance, delivered by a new processors called a Tensor Core.

    Tensor processing units (or TPUs) are application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) developed specifically for machine learning.

    Ha, thanks! I've never heard of a Tensor Teraflop before, and google didn't help much. I wonder how this will translate into the Gigaflops that we know & love for our consumer GPUs?

    Wait, didnt they said nvidia next gen gpu's will use gddr6 and this shows they are going the same route as AMD and hbm2?

    Just for random thought:

    1170(volta) 11 tflops
    1180(volta) 13 tflops
    1180ti/titan 15 tflops

    A golden sample TitanXp with a shunt mod could reach that

    Their previous versions of these cards(pascals) used HBM also. These arent for gamers

    That's related to "tensor" processing for deep learning.

    1080Ti
    Die size: 471mm2
    Cuda cores: 3584
    Floating point: 10.6 TFlops
    MSRP: $699

    Volta
    Die size: 815mm2
    Cuda cores: 5120
    Floating Point: 15 TFlops
    MSRP: Very Very expensive due to die size.

    I was beaten.

    The letters on the images are very small and hard to read, thanks for confirming my guesses.

    So Nvidia is going forward with the bigger and more expensive approach...
    I hope AMD stays low on die size or I won't be able to afford a GPU in a couple of years...

    When it comes to AI they will make so much damn money it won't even matter.

    GDDR6 was just officially announced. It will take a 6 months or more before it gets beyond sampling and into production, which puts the first gaming cards with GDDR6 at a timeframe of mid to late Q1/18.

    This is the same thing as people seeing Samsung announce a new "x" Gbit RAM module in January, and them expecting to see it in their next Galaxy S in March - that's not how things work.

    Nvidia is most likely doing what I predicted and completely splitting it's AI/Deep learning GPU's off from it's gaming oriented ones. GP100 uses completely different cores/layout/memory/etc. Volta is just taking that a step further.

    The market for that stuff is going to surpass their gaming segment one day and it makes sense for them to do that. Especially because the margins on those products are insane.

    Volta will be HUGE alright.

    That means already 1160 will be a bigger chip than 1070/80gtx

    1170/1180 will be bigger than 1080ti/titanxp

    and 1180ti/titanxv will be bigger than tesla(P100)

    I am feeling great gap in size and even greater gap in performance. Let's see.

    I'm feeling a even greater gap in price :banana:
    There's so much dies you can make in a wafer, if those dies are huge their price will be absurd.
    I won't be going Nvidia anytime soon...

    Yep. Even when they shave the die size down for commercial products, it's still going to be huge. For example, if they shrink V100 down by the ratio that the 1080 was to P100, it's still larger than GP102 in the 1080Ti.

    I kindly believe prices will go up for a maximum of 200$ for titan, 150$ for TI, 100$ for x80, 75$ for x70 and 50$ for x60. Meaningless differences I suppose.

    800mm that's crazy. They must have very high confidence in the fab or are willing to ask a kidney from consumers.
