NVIDIA is working on a new set of GPU Cards. The latest ones are expected to be based on a 12nm processor. Furthermore, they will come equipped with a 32-square inch die, making it almost 30% larger than the current P100 Gpu cards.

Storage details

The latest Volta-based GPU cards will offer 16GB of XBM2 VRAM. By integrating the high-speed 5120 CUDA cores, the company plans to target the professional users with it. The primary highlight of the latest set is the fact that it also features up to eight V100 GPUs. The company has, therefore, designed the set to be seamlessly compatible with gaming systems as well.

This design puts the NVIDIA-branded cards in direct competition with the company’s own GeForce series.

Price of the GPU

An online report claims that the upcoming cards believed to be titled, “GTX 2080,” will come at the cost of $699. NVIDIA introduced the Volta lineup in March 2013 first. At that time, the firm launched its Volta-based micro-architecture. In the following year, the company unveiled its successor, titled “Pascal.” The Pascal architecture powers NVIDIA's entire GTX 1000 series. The company hasn’t made any mentions regarding its availability as of yet. Given NVIDIA’s traditional launching pattern, the firm might introduce the lineup anytime in the coming weeks.

The company during the Hot Chips conference in May of this year stated that their latest products wouldn't be available before 2018.

Meanwhile, company’s chief platform architect, Rob Ober revealed significant details about the chips. The company plans on introducing Tesla DGX-1 cards. These come powered by eight Volta-based GPU chips with a backing of 3U chassis. Similar to GTX 2080, these are targeted for professional use.

Performance-wise, the cards pack the ability to deliver 960 TFLOPS.

On the storage front, the cards come packed with 3TB/s output. Six NVLink 2.0 connections are included in Tesla DGX-1. The cards have the ability to deliver roughly 3.2KW of power. The company decided to include a new design with Tesla DGX-1. GeForce GTX series is already doing pretty well for the company. These, as mentioned previously, are powered by the V100 chips.

The revamped versions of these are expected to come out in early 2018. The firm is also experimenting with Bitcoin technology. NVIDIA shares the vision of manufacturing cards that are capable of supporting high-end demands of Bitcoin system.
