Nvidia Puts The Accelerator To The Metal With Pascal

April 5, 2016 Timothy Prickett Morgan The revolution in GPU computing started with games, and spread to the HPC centers of the world eight years ago with the first “Fermi” Tesla accelerators from Nvidia. But hyperscalers and their deep learning algorithms are driving the architecture of the “Pascal” GPUs and the Tesla accelerators that Nvidia unveiled today at the GPU Technical Conference in its hometown of San Jose. And the benefits of that Pascal architecture will cascade back Not only did the hyperscalers and their AI efforts help drive the Pascal architecture, but they will be the first companies to get their hands on all of the Tesla P100 accelerators based on the Pascal GP100 GPU that Nvidia can manufacture, long before they become generally available in early 2017 through…
