[VideoCardz] NVIDIA A100 ‘Ampere’ benchmarked – “the fastest GPU ever recorded”

Source: https://videocardz.com/newz/nvidia-a...-ever-recorded

Quote:
Jules Urbach, the CEO of OTOY (a company specializing in holographic rendering in the cloud), shared first benchmark results of the NVIDIA A100 accelerator.

The GPU is the first, and so far the only, Ampere-based graphics card (or more precisely a compute accelerator). Although NVIDIA announced the immediate availability of the A100 for DGX100 systems, we have not seen any meaningful benchmarks of the A100 yet.

Quote:
Jules Urbach:

A record breaking ????
The @NVIDIA A100 has now become the fastest GPU ever recorded on #OctaneBench: 446 OB4*
#Ampere appears to be ~43% faster than #Turing in #OctaneRender – even w/ #RTX off!
(*standard Linux OB4 benchmark, RTX off, recompiled for CUDA11, ref. 980=102 OB)
Added my stock Titan RTX for a comparison, not overclocked and power limit at 280w.

Looks like Nvidia is hitting a wall. With over double the transistors not even a node shrink helps them going from 12nm to 7nm. With 20 Higher SMs and a bunch of cuda cores it looks like Ampere needs a healthy OC in order to really hide it's lack of efficiency in design.

In all it's a slight increase 45 points vs the Titan V. That deserves 1 firework and one clap...just one.

11% Faster than Titan V....will be interesting to see how much it costs with 40GB HBMe2. Also curious that they cut down Tensor cores from 620 down to 432.

Pretty power efficient for a card that large considering it is faster than AMD's 7nm card with 8192 Stream Processors clocked at 1.7Ghz that uses 475W.

So only 35% faster than your completely stock RTX Titan. Color me un-impressed. I was hoping closer to 50% increase.

GPU: TITAN RTX - 2175 MHz, liquid cooled
CPU: 9900K 5.4 GHz, liquid cooled
MB: ASUS Maximus XI Gene
RAM: G.Skill 32GB 4000 MHz Samsung B-Die
SSD: Intel Optane 905P - 960GB

This is one benchmark.
Wait for more with better AI focus benchmarks than just raw rendering.

Note this is without RTX on.

With RTX on (on the windows 10 version) the 2080 TI score 869 and the titan RTX score 919.
OCed 2080 TIs were tested for 1200+ scores.

So when nvidia actually release a good working rtx driver for linux you can use with octanebench, it will be much faster than you think.

Remember this is the SXM4 400w tdp version not the PCIe 4.0 250w version. So we have to consider what we are actually comparing.

The V100/A100 don't have RT cores so I doubt we'll see a huge performance gain when utilizing RTX. We probably won't have Ampere for consumers. Maybe we'll get Hopper?

AI benchmarks are insane and can be seen here: https://developer.nvidia.com/deep-le...ning-inference

What benefits gamers will be inference performance and compared to last generation it's an insane uplift.

What we are getting is Turing with a node shrink. No clue what they are gonna call it, but yeah, I expect a repeat of Maxwell-->Pascal here.

Looks like I may hang on to the TV until next year, unless they release a full fat 8192cc I don't see a reason to move.
