Nvidia's "Hopped Up" for GTC 2022 - Expect Nvidia to reveal their Hopper Architecture

Nvidia's likely to launch a next-generation computing architecture at GTC 2022


Expect Nvidia to replace its Ampere A100 accelerator at GTC 2022

Nvidia's GTC 2022 conference is starting this week, and the company has already hinted that the event will contain some major product reveals. The company's GTC Keynote is due to be hosted by CEO Jensen Huang on March 22nd at 8 AM Pacific Time, and that alone suggests that Nvidia has something big to showcase. Jensen like to personally reveal Nvidia's biggest products, and his prescience at GTC 2022 suggests that Nvidia has something big to reveal. 

IN a blog post on the company's website, Nvidia has stated that they are "Hopped Up" for GTC 2022. This is a clear tease of Nvidia's planned Hopper architecture, the architecture that is alleged to succeed Ampere within the accelerated computing market. This is also supported by Nvidia's frequent mentions of AI and accelerated computing within their blog post.

Nvidia's Hopper products will likely replace the company's Ampere A100 accelerators, delivering to customers higher performance levels using new architectural innovations, faster memory, and (probably) a smaller lithography node. Rumour has it that Nvidia's Hopper architecture will be Nvidia's first MCM (Multi-Chip-Module) design, a move that may facilitate a large generational performance leap between Ampere and Hopper. That said, we will need to wait for Nvidia's GTC keynote to see exactly what Hopper will deliver.

Note that Nvidia's Hopper products will not be focused on gaming. While Ampere is an architecture that Nvidia has used within both the gaming and accelerated computing markets, Nvidia is reportedly shifting its strategy with their latest products. Nvidia's next-generation gaming GPUs will reportedly use Nvidia's planned Lovelace architecture, with Nvidia's Hopper architecture being focused on AI and accelerated computing.


Nvidia revealed their Ampere A100 almost two years ago, and even now many of Nvidia's competitors are finding it difficult to surpass Nvidia's performance in several critical workloads. Hopper is Nvidia's opportunity to reassert itself as the leader of the AI accelerator market, and their opportunity to push the world forward by giving scientists, researchers, and industries access to even ore computational performance. Expect to se Hopper at GTC, and expect big things from Hopper.
