One note, should the transistor count be 1.2 trillion? I only ask as the Titan V, according to Nvidias only spec, encompasses 21.1 billion.
Yup: I've got it right at trillion in the lede, but see I've put billion in the body. I'll go fix, ta!
But can it run...
Because it's more useful, easier to work with and makes more sense?
Million = 10^6, Billion = 10^9, Trillion = 10^12 gives nice order-of-magnitude scaling to match with SI prefixes.
Million = 10^6, Billion = 10^12, Trillion = 10^24 gives square scaling ("million million is a billion") but leaves increasingly huge gaps between useful prefixes
Trillion = 10^18? Makes no sense to me.
I guess the US system avoids having numbers like one thousand million billion trillion and the names just getting longer and longer....
I like the fact that the biggest processor in modern history that has a chance to change the way we function as a species just gets ignored while people debate a numbering issue. *claps* Maybe you all need a break from the internet. Priorities..blah blah.
Maybe you should up your meds?
You just followed one of the three unwritten rules of bit-tech:
1: If in doubt about ancient tech history, ask Gareth
2: No thread is allowed to stay on topic
3: Bitch about everything being too expensive, then buy it any way
