    Ooooh 16nm.

    Tasty.

    What's next after Geforce 9xx?

    Geforce 7xx?

    Or we going back to the 4 digits... 10xx?

    nvlink not pcie so not for a pc ; imo we wont see retail pascal until late Q3 or even Q4

    edit:

    done a lot of reading into this and TBH I'm not that impressed at all - its very FP16 and FP64 centric , and 10.6 tflops? furyx is 8.6 already - single precision ; the extra transistors have gone into double precision - but FP32 (which is important to gamers ) takes a knock. Its reminds me of the AMD cpu`s with its dual FP16 into FP32.

    this isn't a card for gamers. Deep learning for sure , but GP1xx for pc will be a different beast.


    also - the 5 miracle breakthroughs - we already have 16nm products on the market and interposer-connected memory? Fury from last year would like to ask you about that!

    no wonder he looked so nervous with those blatant lies!

    It has a 16x PCIe link in addition to the 4x NVLink interconnects.

    It does? I thought it only came with NVLink for now, my Googlefu must be letting me down so any chance of a link.

    The DGX-1 uses Xeon CPUs, which only have a PCIe interconnect, and Nvidia's own diagrams show this to be the case. The P100 cards themselves use a custom mezzanine connector to attach to a host board, but they still have a PCIe interface on-chip. There is nothing to stop a P100 chip being mounted on a PCB with a regular card-edge PCIe connector and simply lacking NVLink capability.

    Maybe there's been some confusion then as i thought you were saying/implying that the P100 card comes with both PCIe connections/interconnects and NVLink connections/interconnects.

    That IS exactly what I'm saying! Check the link layout diagrams from Nvidia themselves: P100 has 4 NVLink links and 1 PCIe 16x link per chip.
