  • Nvidia Unveils Volta: 2017 - The Most Powerful GPU Ever.
     

Announced at GTC 2017, the Tesla V100 is an enterprise-level processor powered by the Volta GV100 GPU: the first chip in the world built with a 12nm FFN process. A single Volta GV100 packs in 21 billion transistors, 5120 CUDA cores, 320 texture units and a 4096-bit HBM2 memory interface with a boost clock speed of 1455MHz. It's equipped with 640 Tensor Cores capable of providing 120 teraflops of tensor operations.

Boasting 16GB HBM2 operating at 900 GB/s, the Volta architecture is purportedly four times faster than NVIDIA's top-of-the-range Pascal GPUs in peak teraflops. According to NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang, thousands of NVIDIA engineers spent over three years crafting Volta for a total development cost of $3 billion.

In addition to being NVIDIA's most powerful GPU it is also the biggest: the die size is 815mm2 which is roughly the same size as an Apple Watch. (By contrast, the Tesla P100 measures 600mm.)        LifeHacker
