    OpenAI Presents GPT-3, a 175 Billion Parameters Language Model
    May 29, 2020

    OpenAI researchers today released a paper describing the development of GPT-3, a state-of-the-art language model made up of 175 billion parameters.

    For comparison, the previous version, GPT-2, was made up of 1.5 billion parameters. The largest Transformer-based language model was released by Microsoft earlier this month and is made up of 17 billion parameters.
    ...
    Natural language processing tasks range from generating news articles, to language translation, to answering standardized test questions.

    “The precise architectural parameters for each model are chosen based on computational efficiency and load-balancing in the layout of models across GPU’s,” the organization stated. “All models were trained on NVIDIA V100 GPUs on part of a high-bandwidth cluster provided by Microsoft.”

    OpenAI trains all of their AI models on the cuDNN-accelerated PyTorch deep learning framework.

    Earlier this month Microsoft and OpenAI announced a new GPU-accelerated supercomputer built exclusively for the organization.

    “The supercomputer developed for OpenAI is a single system with more than 285,000 CPU cores, 10,000 GPUs and 400 gigabits per second of network connectivity for each GPU server.,” the companies stated in a blog.

    You do realise that at the bottom of the screen on these forums is a 'style' option, and some people (including me) use the 'dark' option, so I literally cannot see your text at all.

    How was he supposed to know? Looks like normal text in default style. You can mouse over the text to highlight it. Which seems an easier way than for him to check every single copy/pasted text for legibility under a theme style that he doesnt use.

    As @alanm stated I had no way of knowing since this was "copy/pasted" from the original. I'll try to make it more legible, but pasting as plain text removes hyperlinks and other formatting.
    In the future if the same happens you might want to switch to "Guru Blue" style, or "select" all text with your mouse and it should become visible.

    Is there a way to identify what font family and text color is used in a previous post, ie what are the properties of the post. I see some of my past posts look fine with all styles but can not tell the exact properties.

    how about changing the color of the text?

    not that hard - so, instead of getting other people to make changes, how about just using the standard coloring system?

    Then it looks crappy for the other styles, and you can't change styles in the editor.

    That also removes any hyperlinks and special formatting included.
    Edit: The strip formatting button worked in this case as there are only hyperlinks. :) I was thinking about the "past as plain text" feature.

    Rumor: Exclusive first look at Nvidia’s Ampere Gaming performance
    June 21, 2020


    So, while checking 3dmark results as usual, I stumbled upon a very interesting Time Spy result. A private result with a very high overall score and some odd clock numbers :

    [​IMG]
    • GPU vendor : NVidia Corporation
    • GPU core clock : 1935MHz (Time Spy only reports boost clocks)
    • Memory clock : 6000MHz
    I’m sure some of you have questions about that memory clock. It doesn’t match any of the usual known memory clocks for GDDR6 of HBM2. For context :

    • 14Gbps GDDR6 is reported as 1750MHz
    • 16Gbps GDDR6 is reported as 2000MHz
    • 2GT/s HBM2 is reported as 1000MHz
    From my experience, this type of weird reported clocks is either the result of an early/internal driver or a new type of memory that is still unknown to 3dmark detection software.

    Next is actual performance numbers. I compiled a chart of time spy graphics scores that might help us better frame the result in question.

    [​IMG]

    So basically, this unknown Ampere variant is :

    • 30.98% better than a stock RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition
    • 21.07% better than a stock MSI RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z
    • 22.14% better than a stock Nvidia Titan RTX
    • 8.30% better than the best Nvidia Titan V result under LN2
    • 2.18% less than KINGPIN’s overclocked EVGA RTX 2080 Ti XC
    These are some very impressive results given the lower than expected clock speed.

    NVIDIA Shatters Big Data Analytics Benchmark
    June 22, 2020


    NVIDIA just outperformed by nearly 20x the record for running the standard big data analytics benchmark, known as TPCx-BB.

    Using the RAPIDS suite of open-source data science software libraries powered by 16 NVIDIA DGX A100 systems, NVIDIA ran the benchmark in just 14.5 minutes, versus the current leading result of 4.7 hours on a CPU system. The DGX A100 systems had a total of 128 NVIDIA A100 GPUs and used NVIDIA Mellanox networking.

    Today, leading organizations use AI to gain insights. The TPCx-BB benchmark features queries that combine SQL with machine learning on structured data, with natural language processing and unstructured data, reflecting the diversity found in modern data analytics workflows.

    These unofficial results point to a new standard, and the breakthroughs behind it are available through the NVIDIA software and hardware ecosystem.

    TPCx-BB is a big data benchmark for enterprises representing real-world ETL (extract, transform, load) and machine learning workflows. The benchmark’s 30 queries include big data analytics use cases like inventory management, price analysis, sales analysis, recommendation systems, customer segmentation and sentiment analysis.

    Despite steady improvements in distributed computing systems, such big data workloads are bottlenecked when running on CPUs. The RAPIDS results on DGX A100 showcase the breakthrough potential for TPCx-BB benchmarks powered by GPUs, a measurement historically run on CPU-only systems.

    The TPCx-BB queries were implemented as a series of Python scripts utilizing the RAPIDS dataframe library, cuDF; the RAPIDS machine learning library, cuML; and CuPy, BlazingSQL and Dask as the primary libraries. Numba was used to implement custom logic in user-defined functions, with spaCy for Named Entity Recognition.

    These results would not be possible without the RAPIDS and broader PyData ecosystem.

    Nvidia Nabs #7 Spot on Top500 with Selene
    June 22, 2020

    Nvidia’s new internal AI supercomputer, Selene, joins the upper echelon of the 55th Top500’s ranks and breaks an energy-efficiency barrier. With 27.5 double-precision Linpack petaflops, Selene landed the number seventh spot on the latest Top500 list released today as part of the ISC 2020 Digital proceedings.

    Selene is the second most-performant industry system on the list, coming in one spot below Eni’s HPC5 machine, which was sixth with 35.5 HPL petaflops (and also uses Nvidia GPUs).
    ...
    On the heels of Nvidia’s Ampere launch, Selene was constructed and up and running in less than a month, the company said.

    Nvidia also runs internal workloads on three other machines that have made it into the Top500 ranking.

    There’s the V100-based DGX Superpod machine, which came in 24th on the latest Top500 with 9.4 Linpack petaflops; the P100-based DGX Saturn-V, deployed in 2016 that’s currently in 78th place with 3.3 petaflops; and Circe, another V100-based Superpod that’s grabbed the 91st rung with 3.1 Linpack petaflops.

    DirectX 12 Ultimate Game Ready Driver Released, GeForce Game Ready 451.48 WHQL driver
    June 24, 2020

    Furthermore, in addition to introducing support for DirectX 12 Ultimate, the Windows 10 May 2020 Update also added a new feature called Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling. This new feature can potentially improve performance and reduce latency by allowing the video card to directly manage its own memory.

    To enable hardware scheduling, you can open “Graphics Settings: Change Default Graphics Settings”. Simply toggle the feature on and restart the system and you’ll reap the full benefits of the feature.

    Rumor: Death Stranding PC will support DLSS 2.0 Tech
    June 29, 2020
    It appears that the PC version of Death Stranding will support NVIDIA’s latest DLSS tech, DLSS 2.0. This was revealed via a new press release that NVIDIA sent to specific media partners. While NVIDIA did not send us this press release, it was leaked online so we’ve decided to report on it.

    “Among the highlights is the long-awaited Death Stranding; a title that unfolds a grim post-apocalyptic future, devised by the creator of the Metal Gear series , Hideo Kojima. The game explores a society that seeks to reconnect and features the performances of actors like Norman Reedus, in addition to being able to enjoy even more beautiful landscapes on PC, thanks to NVIDIA’s DLSS 2.0 technology.

    PC gamers can finally enjoy this award-winning work by legendary game maker Hideo Kojima on reconnecting a destroyed humanity and harnessing the power of GeForce GPUs to run at 60 FPS. The PC version is also compatible with NVIDIA DLSS to improve visual quality and offer more frames per second, as well as to play the game on ultra-wide screens, along with the new photographic mode.”

    Neon Noir Benchmarked: Crytek's Ray Tracing Benchmark Tool Tested
    June 30, 2020

    Crytek uses a software-based approach for ray tracing in CryEngine, meaning the RT cores inside of the Turing GPU are rendered useless, as too will the new RDNA 2 architecture from AMD. CryEngine's ray tracing technology runs on compute shaders through DX11, meaning it'll work on most graphics cards on the market.
    ...
    Crytek has simply pulled the veil back on software-based ray tracing technology inside of CryEngine here with its Neon Noir benchmark, but as we get closer to the reveal of AMD's next-gen RDNA 2 architecture and the next-gen Microsoft Xbox Series X and Sony PlayStation 5 consoles... ray tracing is going to become an even bigger topic for gamers.
