NVIDIA Pascal GPUs Coming to Automotive ‘Supercomputer’

It’s no secret that NVIDIA is eager to take elements of its successful GPGPU ecosystem developed in partnership with the HPC community and transfer these to the much broader, and more lucrative, consumer space. At SC15, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang referred to machine learning as HPC’s first consumer killer app. Google, Microsoft, and Facebook have all made major machine learning in-roads in recent months and GPUs are a key element in all of these projects. NVIDIA has been especially keen to apply its deep learning prowess to enable autonomous vehicles. Yesterday, the GPU vendor launched NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2, an autonomous vehicle development platform powered by the 16nm FinFET-based Pascal GPU, the named successor to Maxwell. Like last year’s DRIVE PX, the next-gen development platform targets NVIDIA’s automotive partners, a growing list that includes Audi, BMW,…
