Tweaked to fool the benchmarks
While the Tame Apple Press has been praising the GPU performance innovations of the iPhone 7’s new A10 Fusion chip, they might have been fooling themselves.
Beancounters working for Jon Peddie Research (JPR) have added up some numbers and divided by their shoe size and worked out that AMD is clawing back the GPU market from the outfit named after a Roman vengeance daemon, Nvidia.
DGX SaturnV with its Tesla P100s
The GPU maker named after a Roman vengeance daemon, Nvidia, has been patting itself on the back over the DGX SaturnV, which it says is the most energy efficient supercomputer of all time.
Return of the GPU Jedi
Nvidia, as you have seen, did an amazing job gaining a lot of the GPU high end and mainstream market. Pascal worked out great on the desktop and notebook, but it would be naive to expect that AMD is not going to come back with a vengeance.
There is more to life than pixels
Nvidia just announced its fiscal Q3 2017 (not a typo Ed.) and the company reported record revenue of $2 billion, up 54 percent from a year ago. This is finally proof that Nvidia is more than a GPU outfit, as it finally expanded beyond its core business - gaming and professional graphics.
Both coming to retail/e-tail on October 25th
Nvidia has apparently moved its schedule forward and has officially announced its two new Geforce 10-series graphics cards, the Geforce GTX 1050 Ti and the Geforce GTX 1050, based on the smallest Pascal-architecture GP107 GPU and bringing more performance to gamers on a budget and those looking to play MOBA titles.
RUMOUR 50 percent improvement per watt
While no-one had expected much from AMD before Vega in the next few months, it appears the outfit is going to ship revised versions of the Polaris 10 and 11 graphics chips.
Small GP107 GPU rumored to be made by Samsung
After the performance leak, it was only a matter of time before someone took a picture of either the GTX 1050 or GTX 1050 Ti. Earlier this week, a set GTX 1050 Ti PCB pictures revealed a smaller GP107 GPU, which also added fuel to recent rumors that it might be the first GPU made on Samsung's 14nm manufacturing process.
Ai Supercomputer with SoC 7 B transistors
Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has just announced a 2017 processor s codenamed Xavier to succeed Parker.
