Nvidia announce their Volta-based Tesla V100 GPU

 
Nvidia has announced their Volta-based Tesla V100 GPU, which uses HBM2 and has 5,120 CUDA cores and offers a total of 15 TFLOPS of FP32 performance.
 
This GPU will be based on TSMC's new 12nm manufacturing process and is the largest GPU die that is manufacturable at this time, at least according to Nvidia. 
 
The Tesla V100 is not a gaming GPU and will be an NVLink based GPU, so don't expect this GPU to hit store shelves anytime soon. Even so, a GPU that offers a 50% performance improvement over their existing Pascal P100 is a very impressive performance change for Nvidia, though this is achieved by greatly increasing the die size and complexity of the GPU.

That's a ******** massive die. Holy moly. 21B transistors will cause that I guess lol
Nice to see 12nm. Going to be horribly expensive and I wouldn't expect mass production until late this year that'll have costs down enough for consumers and then enough volume for late Q1Quote

Woooow. That card has cajones with their own gravity field. Quote

I also just read what their CEO said about the competition level. He said he does not believe the current situation in regards to performance levels will change this year(referring to Vega). Kinda worries me. If this is the case, AMD need to start shelling out money to studios to get better optimization for their stuff.Quote

I understand why he is confident. AMD is no treat at all. AMD needs to take that money that they would give to companies for optimisation, and marketing, and free coffe for workers, and create one uber mental GPU and just bump it on the market. No announcements, no marketing. Just come one day and say here is our GPU and it destroys the green team. Then we would have proper competition. Until that day nVidia will rule like they have ruled all this years, and AMD would just get scraps at the lower end market. Even with their "new" RX 500 cards they are not worth buying.Quote

The RX500 series is worth buying.
AMD is a threat, they are capable of competing, but they are strapped for cash. I think you over estimate how Nvidia "ruled all these years". They really have only been ahead with Pascal, and as time goes on, there older cards get worse while AMDs gets better.Quote
