Nvidia powers up deep-learning inference with Tesla P4 and P40

by Zak Killian — 10:32 AM on September 13, 2016 At the GPU Technology Conference in Beijing, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced the next two cards in the Tesla family of high-performance compute accelerators. The Tesla P4 is built on top of the same GP104 silicon as the GeForce GTX 1080, while the Tesla P40 uses the GP102 silicon used in the newer Titan X. Nvidia has thrown its weight behind deep learning for some time now, and in fact, the Pascal architecture itself was introduced with the Tesla P100 and the DGX-1 deep learning system. The P100 processor is well-suited to neural network training, which Nvidia says benefits greatly from the chip’s massive FP16 performance. By contrast, the new P4 and P40 are focused on neural network inferencing, which…
