Nvidia’s new Pascal GPUs can give smart answers

Nvidia’s new Tesla P4 and P40 GPUs are targeted at deep learning Nvidia’s Tesla P40 GPU is for deep learning. Credit: Nvidia Autonomous cars need a new kind of horsepower to identify objects, avoid obstacles and change lanes. There’s a good chance that will come from graphics processors in data centers or even the trunks of cars. With this scenario in mind, Nvidia has built two new GPUs — the Tesla P4 and P40 — based on the Pascal architecture and designed for servers or computers that will help drive autonomous cars. In recent years, Tesla GPUs have been targeted at supercomputing, but they are now being tweaked for deep-learning systems that aid in correlation and classification of data. “Deep learning” typically refers to a class of algorithmic techniques based…
