    "Up to 50%" is not the same as 50%, let's keep expectations realistic, and besides, NV doesn't like to offer that much performance boost, not if they can spread it out over a couple of revisions, and still charge a premium for it.

    End users need to stop surmising on what nvidia corp "doesn't like"

    The only way he wins that bet is if this rumor is true, and they previously stated they don't believe rumors.

    NV does indeed like to offer that much performance. We've seen it regularly over the years (Kepler > Maxwell > Pascal). Revisions gain performance naturally as yields improve, they dont hold it back or 'bottle it' to unleash it later if its there from day one :rolleyes:.

    They say the 50% performance increase is not impossible due to 7nm node improvements and features. Sounds though there might be some hardware feature performance trade-offs depending on how they play it.

    Why would he bet on your opinion of Nvidia's motives? Considering Nvidia has offered a solid 50% gain between uarchs in recent history, 50% gain in performance doesn't seem absurd. Secondarily I have never once experienced the 'fine wine' AMD fans so giddily promote as a positive. Are you sure you're not mistaking AMD marketing for Nvidia's. From my experience, Nvidia gives you what you get at launch. You might gain a few percent from driver/game tweaks. You pay a bit more for it, but then again, the enthusiast space isn't the budget AMD space.

    NVIDIA Seemingly Dropping Price on GeForce RTX 2060 Cards To $299 To Tackle AMD’s Radeon RX 5600 XT

    During our visit to the EVGA booth at CES 2020, we came by an interesting NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 card with an even more interesting price range. This card is the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO Edition and it will cost just $299 US compared to the current RTX 2060 pricing of $349 US.
    ...
    At $299 US, the new RTX 2060 could offer much better value over the Radeon RX 5600 XT even while being $20 US more expensive. AMD has shown the RX 5600 XT to be up to 15% faster than a GTX 1660 SUPER and 20% faster than a GTX 1660 Ti.

    The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, on the other hand, is up to 20% faster than the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER while offering added features such as RTX, DLSS, etc. It would be interesting to see how the Radeon RX 5600 XT and the price-cut GeForce RTX 2060 perform against each other in the coming weeks.

    Price wars leading to cuts are good for all of us.

    A proper showcase for RT and game optimization done right. If only all games could run this well and look as good. Finally quality RT is doable on 4k.

    Ampere: Academia Gets The First Production Cray “Shasta” Supercomputer

    Indiana University is the proud owner of the first operational Cray “Shasta” supercomputer on the planet. The $9.6 million system, known as Big Red 200 to commemorate the university’s 200th anniversary and its school colors, was designed to support both conventional HPC as well as AI workloads. The machine will also distinguish itself in another important way, being one of the world’s first supercomputers to employ Nvidia’s next-generation GPUs.
    ...
    According to Wheeler, the addition of the new GPUs was something of a fluke. The original plan was to outfit the system with Nvidia V100 GPUs, which would have brought its peak performance to around 5.9 petaflops. But as they were getting ready to receive the system, an opportunity presented itself to wait a bit longer and move up to Nvidia’s newer technology. “At the last minute, we decided to take the machine in two phases,” explained Wheeler.
    ...
    The first phase of the system – the one currently up and running at IU – is comprised of 672 dual-socket nodes powered exclusively by CPUs, in this case, “Rome” Epyc 7742 processors from AMD. (Yes, AMD ate Intel’s lunch yet again in another high-profile HPC deal). The second phase of the new IU supercomputer will commence this summer and will bring additional AMD Rome nodes online and these will be equipped with one or more of the next-generation Nvidia GPUs.
    ...
    As a result of the two-phase approach, waiting a few more months yielded an additional two petaflops of performance, even though, according to Wheeler, they ended up buying a smaller number of GPUs. (The newer silicon is expected to deliver 70 percent to 75 percent more performance than that of the current generation.) Perhaps more importantly, having the latest and greatest GPUs will help attract additional research dollars to the university, especially for AI-enabled research.
    ...
    The new GPUs are certain to get a workout at IU. Researchers there are already applying AI techniques in areas like medical research and molecular genetics, cybersecurity, fraud prevention, and neuroscience, to name a few. Of course, the new system will also be expected to support more conventional HPC workloads, including the usual suspects such as climate modeling, genomic analysis, and particle physics simulations. Depending on the code employed, the GPUs could come in handy in these domains as well. “There were so many things being done algorithmically to really start to enable GPU use across a range of research disciplines and methods,” notes Wheeler.

    To make up for the slight delay in GPU deployment, the university is upgrading its Carbonate cluster with 96 additional Tesla V100 accelerators. It was previously outfitted with 16 P100 GPUs and 8 V100 GPUs according to the system’s webpage, and was the main resource for IU researchers that needed modern AI hardware. The additional V100s will provide some extra capacity until phase two of Big Red 200 comes online.

    Just to put this in the correct perspective,

    This is GA100 vs GV100
    There is no TU100

    Also means that any tweet you see claiming nvidia has not taped out ampere is categorically false.

    If GA100 is 75% faster than GV100, we can assume Ampere based Titan RTX will be ~66.67% faster than Turing based Titan RTX in everything.
