Finally, buried in the PCIe Tesla P100 announcement, NVIDIA has also reconfirmed that the Piz Daint supercomputer upgrade project is on schedule for later this year. The Swiss National Supercomputing Center will be doing a drop-in upgrade, replacing the supercomputer’s 4,500 Tesla K20X cards with Tesla P100 PCIe cards. This will be, to our knowledge, the first Pascal P100 based supercomputer to come online once the upgrade is completed.
Should I surmise that it will be a cold day in hell before a new Titan is released? I know that PizDaint supercomputer is not the only replacement project ongoing. Not sure what yields will look like but at this point it's not looking promising. My question: is the Titan brand dead? I have nothing to go on, but maybe that's the rub. NV doesn't comment at all on future consumer GPU's. Is there anything to go on, as we have nothing forward looking to go on but smoke.
The NVlink for consumer cards idea apparently is crushed, as well as 3 & 4 SLI. Wake me 2nd Qtr 2017 . Maybe I'll finally bite and just mindlessly play Overwatch for the next 9 months.
