The big tech news this week is the official unveiling of Ampere, following months and months (years, really) of rumors. From the confines of his swank kitchen, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang dished up some details about the next-gen GPU, at least as it pertains to the data center high performance computing (HPC) markets. Following the announcement, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su revealed another interesting nugget—NVIDIA's DGX A100 servers are packing EPYC "Rome" processors inside rather than Intel Xeon chips. This is yet another feather for AMD's cap, which has been amassing them ever since Zen arrived (and in particular, the latest iteration, Zen 2). Proud to have @AMDServer #EPYC “Rome” CPUs...

We've been hearing about NVIDIA's next-generation Ampere for the past two years, but the company is finally ready to talk about its next-generation GPU architecture. Though you won't hear any info today about GeForce RTX 30 Series of consumer gaming graphics cards, NVIDIA is discussing details about Ampere for machine learning data center and HPC markets. In short, this version of Ampere is the biggest most powerful GPU NVIDIA has ever made, and the company offers that it's also the world's biggest 7nm chip. There's no doubt, it's massive.   According to NVIDIA, its Ampere-based A100 GPU is already in full production and shipping to customers, and it is claiming that the A100... Read more...
We’ve been getting “amped” for NVIDIA’s next-generation Ampere technology for quite some time, and it appears that the wait is nearly over for us to starting receiving some official information on the new GPU architecture. NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang is even getting in on the action by giving us just a tiny taste of Ampere prior to his Thursday GTC 2020 virtual keynote. In a humorous video posted to NVIDIA’s official YouTube video, Jensen is just chilling in his kitchen – sans his iconic leather jacket – waiting for a delicious entrée to come out of the oven. But rather than a succulent turkey or a homemade lasagna, Jensen pulls out what looks... Read more...
Unless all of the leaks and rumors have it wrong, NVIDIA will eventually roll out Ampere, it's next-generation GPU architecture for high-performance computing (HPC) workloads and presumably consumer applications as well (GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, anyone?). As it pertains to the former, an interesting trademark application for a "DGX A100" product has been spotted. NVIDIA's DGX products are high powered workstations built around cutting edge GPU hardware. The DGX-2, for example, features up to 16 interconnected Tesla V100 GPUs based on the company's Volta architecture. NVIDIA bills it as "the world's most powerful AI system for the most complex AI challenges," with up to 2 petaFLOPS of performance... Read more...
