Nvidia Debuts Tesla P100 Accelerator with 15B Transistors for AI, Deep Learning

Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang used the opening keynote of the company’s annual GPU Technology Conference to announce a massive new processor designed specifically for deep learning. The Tesla P100 is the first shipping product to use Nvidia’s new Pascal architecture, and is made up of 15.3 billion transistors, which the company says makes it the largest microchip ever fabricated. The Tesla P100 is built using a new 16nm FinFE manufacturing process and uses 16GB of HBM2 graphics memory which is integrated onto the same chip substrate, which results in memory bandwidth of up to 720GBps. Peak performance is rated at 21.2 Teraflops for half-precision instructions, 10.6 Teraflops for single-precision and 5.3 Teraflops for double-precision workloads. Up to eight Tesla P100 chips can be interconnected using Nvidia’s NVLink bus. The Tesla…
