NVIDIA bets big on AI with powerful new chip

(NVIDIA) Tweet Share NVIDIA has released a new state-of-the-art chip that pushes the limits of machine learning. The Tesla P100 GPU, which CEO Jen-Hsun Huang revealed yesterday at NVIDIA’s annual GPU Technology Conference, can perform deep learning neural network tasks 12 times faster than NVIDIA’s previous top-end system. The P100 was a huge commitment for NVIDIA, costing over $2 billion in research and development, and it sports a whopping 150 billion transistors on a single chip, making the P100 the world’s largest chip, NVIDIA claims. In addition to machine learning, the P100 will work for all sorts of high performance computing tasks — NVIDIA just wants you to know it’s ​really good at machine learning​. To top off the P100’s introduction, NVIDIA has packed eight of them into a crazy-powerful $129,000 supercomputer…
