[Anandtech] NVIDIA Ampere Unleashed: NVIDIA Announces New GPU Architecture, A100 GPU, and Accelerator

https://www.anandtech.com/show/15801...-a100-products

Quote:
While NVIDIA’s usual presentation efforts for the year were dashed by the current coronavirus outbreak, the company’s march towards developing and releasing newer products has continued unabated. To that end, at today’s now digital GPU Technology Conference 2020 keynote, the company and its CEO Jensen Huang are taking to the virtual stage to announce NVIDIA’s next-generation GPU architecture, Ampere, and the first products that will be using it.

Like the Volta reveal 3 years ago – and is now traditional for NVIDIA GTC reveals – today’s focus is on the very high end of the market. In 2017 NVIDIA launched the Volta-based GV100 GPU, and with it the V100 accelerator. V100 was a massive success for the company, greatly expanding their datacenter business on the back of the Volta architecture’s novel tensor cores and sheer brute force that can only be provided by a 800mm2+ GPU. Now in 2020, the company is looking to continue that growth with Volta’s successor, the Ampere architecture.

...

Kicking things off for the Ampere family is the A100. Officially, this is the name of both the GPU and the accelerator incorporating it; and at least for the moment they’re both one in the same, since there is only the single accelerator using the GPU.

...

Designed to be the successor to the V100 accelerator, the A100 aims just as high, just as we’d expect from NVIDIA’s new flagship accelerator for compute. The leading Ampere part is built on TSMC’s 7nm process and incorporates a whopping 54 billion transistors, 2.5x as many as the V100 before it. NVIDIA has put the full density improvements offered by the 7nm process in use, and then some, as the resulting GPU die is 826mm2 in size, even larger than the GV100. NVIDIA went big on the last generation, and in order to top themselves they’ve gone even bigger this generation.
So no news about the 30xx line of GPUs, but if history is anything to go by, those are on the way with an announcement by this summer.

looks like we're on track for a normal release cycled... ~90 months pushed from start, with shortages & paper release abound. (maybe)

At this point, this is already a given every 2 years or so. My GTX 970 will have to hang on a little bit longer.

Btw, who here thinks they'll actually name it RTX 3xxx? Nvidia seems pretty allergic to using 3 as a prefix, so they'll probably skip over to 4xxx. Calling it now.

Nah, it'll be the COVID80ti.

Please don't say 970, people will come out of the woodwork like roaches to complain about 3.5gb of memory.

With the size of these dies you know there will be massive shortages, though there will also be an enormous amount of defects, which will trickle down to consumers eventually, once datacentres and entreprise orders have been filled.

I think the leak of kitty corgi might be partial correct, if we anticipated that everything in Ampere Geforce is actually a cut down.

5760 cut out of 6144 full core (GA102 - RTX Titan A)
5120 cut out of 6144 full core (GA102 - RTX 3080 Ti)
3840 cut out of 4096 full core (GA104 - RTX 3080)
3072 cut out of 4096 full core (GA104 - RTX 3070)


In year 2021 we will might see:

RTX Titan A Refresh - Full 6144
RTX 3080 TI Super - 5760 Cores*
RTX 3080 Super - Full 4096
RTX 3070 Super - 3584 Cores

* depend on AMD competitiveness.
