Nvidia's massive H100 Hopper GPU leaks ahead of its official unveiling

Nvidia's H100 Hopper GPU is a 5nm monster

Later today, Nvidia will be revealing its Hopper architecture during its GTC 2022 keynote, revealing the company's successor to their Ampere-based A100 chip that reportedly uses TSMC's 5nm lithography node and six stacks of High Bandwidth Memory. 

Videocardz has managed to grab a few images of Nvidia's new Hopper HPC (High Performance Computing) accelerator chip before its official unveiling, showcasing a huge chip that reportedly features a maximum of 144 Streaming Multiprocessor (SM) units. For context, Nvidia's Ampere A100 chip offered users up to 108 SM units, though it is worth noting that Nvidia's Hopper H100 chip may have some of its SMs disabled for binning/yield reasons. 

Assuming that Nvidia's Hopper architecture and alleged use of 5nm lithography result in Nvidia's usual generational performance leaps, the company's Hopper H100 silicon should be able to deliver impressive performance levels. The fact that it should offer users more SM units should be enough to deliver a notable performance boost by itself, with architectural and lithography node shifts adding even more performance into the mix.

Today, Nvidia is likely to reveal a range of Hopper based products. These products should all use Nvidia's GH-100 silicon and be branded as H100 series products. PCIe and DGX Hopper products are expected, as are hopper based workstations.

Probably around the end of this year for the big workstation and server types.Quote
