Includes Geforce GTX 1080 Ti, new Titan, Quadro and Tesla GPUs
On Wednesday, the folks at AIDA64 released a complete list of the device hardware IDs that Nvidia will use for its upcoming Geforce 10 Pascal lineup in both mobile and desktop GPUs. The list confirms the existence of GP102, a chip the company has likely reserved for Geforce GTX 1080 Ti, a refreshed Geforce Titan series, and a few new Quadro and Tesla GPUs all expected for release several months from now.
Out of 60 possible
Nvidia confirmed that there are 56 streaming multiprocessor (SM) units each having 64 CUDA cores enabled on the GP100 GPU. This results in 3,584 cores on the Tesla P100 GPU. However, this leaves 4 SM cores disabled as the total number of SM’s is 60.
Still no NVLINK support for consumer x86 CPUs
We disagree, offer some alternatives
On Wednesday, someone thought it would be clever to post an unsourced Nvidia Pascal GPU naming scheme spreadsheet to popular image hosting website Imgur.com. As a result, GPU enthusiasts from all around have frequented hardware forums to discuss the matter of Nvidia’s yet to be announced 2016 GPU lineup based on 16-nanometer FinFET technology.
Shipping values priced between $608 and $810 USD per unit
Any time a new batch of GPUs are ready to be sent from a manufacturing facility overseas to a supply partner for testing and metrics, there are always debugging and testing parts sent ahead of time to ensure that silicon is quickly brought to market without suffering silicon respin and unforeseen manufacturing delays.
Dotting the last semi-colon in Pascal
Nvidia appears to be on track to launch its new Pascal architecture in 2016.
