At this stage of the game, barely a day goes by without a juicy rumor focused on NVIDIA's next-generation Turing GPUs for consumers. Today is not one of those quiet days. The latest rumor traces to HWiNFO, a popular piece of diagnostic software. HWiNFO posted the release notes for its latest version (5.86), and in are references to a couple of unreleased GPUs. The release notes state that support has been added for NVIDIA's GV102 and GV104 GPUs, neither of which are out yet. So, we have official confirmation of Turing, right? Well, not so fast. There are a couple of things to note here, the first... Read more...
Some of the top researchers in artificial intelligence received a special surprise from NVIDIA at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference in Salt Lake City, Utah yesterday. NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang presented twenty randomly selected attendees with a limited edition Titan V CEO Edition graphics card, which isn't just unique because the box bears Jensen's signature, but also for the beefed up specs. Like the regular Titan V, the limited run CEO Edition is based on NVIDIA's Volta architecture. However, it comes with 32GB of HBM2 memory and 6MB of L2 cache, up from 12GB and 4.5MB, respectively,...

NVIDIA and IBM have helped the United States lay claim to the fastest supercomputer ever made. Called Summit, the remarkable machine sits at the US Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) where it is capable of crushing workloads via a staggering 200 petaflops of high-precision computation, making it eight times more powerful than Titan, previously the fastest supercomputer in the US. "Summit is fast, but what Summit means is even more remarkable," NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang said at Summit’s debut. "Summit is a magnificent scientific instrument that will attract the world’s...

We were first introduced to NVIDIA's 12nm Volta GV100 GPU architecture back in early May 2017 when the Tesla V100 Accelerator debuted. NVIDIA later extended its GV100 GPU to the Titan V (you can read the HotHardware review here), which is aimed at professional and academic deep learning applications. Now, NVIDIA is ready to unleash the Quadro GV100, which brings Volta GPU architecture to the company's lineup of professional graphics cards. NVIDIA is really throwing down the hammer with the Quadro GV100, as the graphics card has 32GB of HBM2 onboard, which is scalable to a 64GB addressable frame... Read more...
Three and a half months ago, NVIDIA launched its first consumer graphics card with a Volta GPU inside, the mighty Titan V. While it's a capable gaming card, that is not what it was designed for. The Titan V was built for professional and academic deep learning applications, and as we saw first-hand, it is an absolute beast when it comes to scientific computing calculations. Unfortunately, it may not always get the math right, according to what The Register has been hearing from computer scientists. One of the site's sources, an unnamed engineer, said the Titan V is prone to coming up with different... Read more...
It's a terrible time right now for gamers and DIY PC enthusiasts who are looking to build up a new gaming PC. The problem isn’t that the hardware available now is sub-par; we have some fantastic CPUs and GPUs on the market. Unfortunately, as it has been widely reported, the problem is that cryptocurrency miners are gobbling up all the graphics cards, leaving many gamers unable to find a card for an even remotely reasonable price. When you can find a graphics card, the prices are usually multiple times higher than  MSRP. The problem is that supply right now isn't meeting the demand and... Read more...
Back in September 2016, NVIDIA first introduced us to a brand new ARM64 architecture called Xavier. Xavier is a custom octa-core processor architecture that features NVIDIA’s latest Volta GPU (512 CUDA cores). When Xavier was originally announced, NVIDIA expected to begin sampling in Q4 2017, with volume production slated for 2018. Tonight, NVIDIA announced that its first samples of Xavier chips are now on the way to customers. It's been a long time coming, but NVIDIA says that Xavier is the culmination of $2 billion in research and development, along with the hard work over 2,000 engineers.... Read more...
Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are becoming an increasingly more valuable resource in the computing arena. We've seen high-powered GPUs powering everything from gaming consoles, to high-end enthusiast PCs, to accelerators used for artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, to products like NVIDIA's DRIVE PX which enables advanced machine vision for autonomous vehicles. As GPUs get more powerful with each new generation, there also comes a need for faster memory to fuel them. In the case of Micron, the company has been delivering GDDR5X memory solutions for today's high-end... Read more...
Although NVIDIA officially unveiled its Volta-based GV100 GPU over seven months ago, and an unwitting intern may have leaked pictures of the card we’re going to show you here today shortly thereafter, the NVIDIA TITAN V featuring the GV100 GPU began shipping just this past week. The NVIDIA TITAN V targets a very specific audience and is designed for professional and academic deep learning applications, which partly explains its lofty $3,000 price tag. Unlike NVIDIA's previous-gen consumer flagship, the TITAN Xp, the TITAN V is clearly not designed for gamers. But since it features NVIDIA’s... Read more...
Early yesterday morning, we brought you news of a YouTuber that managed to get his hands on one of the first NVIDIA TITAN V graphics cards that shipped to well-heeled customers. BitsBeTrippin' slapped the chest thumpin' Volta-based GPU into an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X system, and cranked out 70 MH/s at stock speeds and 77 MH/s while overclocked, while drawing 213W and 237W respectively. We here at HotHardware just so happen to have a TITAN V in house as well, and we are presently running it through an exhaustive battery of benchmarks. However, we were able to extract a few data points for all... Read more...
Make no bones about it, the new TITAN V is a monster graphics card. We know this from the spec sheet alone—the NVIDIA TITAN V is rocking a Volta GPU underneath the hood, along with a whole bunch of redesigned Tensor cores for deep learning workloads. Looking beyond the spec sheet, a user on Reddit has assembled a collection of links to some early, unofficial benchmarks of the TITAN V, and boy-oh-boy is it fast. We say "unofficial" because there is always the chance these benchmarks are fake. We do not know how many of these cards NVIDIA might have shipped out to reviewers, but however... Read more...
In July of 2016, NVIDIA launched the Pascal-based TITAN X, promising 11 teraflops (TFLOPs) of compute performance. In April of this year, NVIDIA ratcheted up the performance a tad with a fully unlocked Pascal GP102 core in the form of TITAN Xp, boasting a full 12 TFLOPs of compute power. Now, NVIDIA is ready to unleash a completely new GPU aimed at researchers and scientists, the TITAN V. The card was fittingly announced at the Conference and Workshop on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) in Long Beach, California. The new TITAN V is based on the NVIDIA Volta architecture, and with that... Read more...
NVIDIA has found plenty of partners for its DRIVE PX 2 autonomous driving platform, including the likes of Toyota and Volvo. When it was first announced back at CES 2016, NVIDIA billed Drive PX 2 as the "world's first in-car artificial intelligence supercomputer". Not one to rest on its laurels, the GPU and AI company pulled the wraps off the Drive PX 2 Pegasus platform at GTC Europe. According to NVIDIA, DRIVE PX Pegasus is capable of executing over 320 million operations per second, outpacing its predecessor by 10x. Powering this new AI systems are two next generation NVIDIA Xavier SoCs that... Read more...
For those who need the ultimate in compute power, but can't accommodate a computer that would fill an entire room, NVIDIA's DGX-1 'supercomputer' fits the bill. Unveiled earlier this year at NVIDIA's own GTC, the DGX-1 is a server unit that packs in 8 of the company's ultra-powerful Tesla V100s, delivering a peak 960 TFLOPS of half-precision performance. We're not sure how many of these monsters are out in the wild, but one anonymous Geekbench user had access to one long enough to run the test, and immediately broke world records. As you can see in the shot below, the DGX-1 running either OpenCL... Read more...
