Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang used his keynote at the GDC2016 today to announce the Tesla P100 GPU card and hailed it as “the most advanced accelerator ever built”. This GPU accelerator marks a milestone as it is the first to be based upon Nvidia’s 11th generation Pascal architecture. It is expected that the new GPU card will be leveraged to build a new generation of data centres capable of deep learning feats that will go further than ever before in meeting scientific challenges such as “finding cures for cancer, understanding climate change, building intelligent machines”. Keeping his foot on the hyperbole accelerator Huang said the Nvidia Tesla P100 GPU was based upon five “miracle” technological breakthroughs. The breakthroughs were listed as follows: Nvidia Pascal architecture for exponential performance leap -…
