NVIDIA Volta is a new GPU architecture designed to fulfill the needs of artificial intelligence of every industry for automation. As this GPU helps in delivering faster speed in all sectors, Volta can now deliver over 100 teraflops per second (TFLOPS) of deep learning performance, which gives out a 5X increase compared to the previous generation architectures. A report by Hot Hardware presents most of the facts used in this article.

An ultimate GPU

Volta uses a very high speed interconnect technology.


This gives 2X the throughput, compared to the previous links. This enables an advanced scaling for highest application performance. This is not yet in the market and is expected to release in early 2018, and seems to be for Volta – based gaming cards. Now, this professional class Volta – the Tesla V100 uses 12nm finFET design and has approximately 5276 CUDA cores.

Moreover, this GPU would cost around about $700. This would also have a greater efficiency and work better with DX12 and Vulkan. It features a Pascal GP100 GPU and will thereby improve programmability.

These advances will supercharge high-performance computing and Depp learning systems and applications. Under Volta series there comes a Tesla V100 hardware, which is engineered for the convergence of HPC and AI.

More regarding Volta

This can provide a scientific simulation and data science for finding insights in data. By using CUDA cores and Tensor Cores within an architecture, a single Tesla V100 GPUs server can replace hundreds of CPU-only servers for both high-performance computing and artificial intelligence workloads.


It is so affordable that every researcher and engineer can use it to tackle their most challenging work. The Tesla V100 for NV Link gives out an interconnect bandwidth (bidirectional) of 300 GB/s as compared to the Tesla V100 for PCIe with 32 GB/s.

Now, this has a memory capacity of 16 GB HBM2, with a bandwidth of 900 GB/s, which is most suitable to tackle AI workloads. It is also one of the least power consuming pieces of hardware, with a maximum consumption of 300 Watts. With over 21 billion transistors, Volta would be the most powerful GPU in the history of artificial intelligence.

It is the future of every industry, as every industry needs intelligence and Volta packs all the features to deliver it. The industry of data science and application can easily tap into the power of Volta. This propels data scientists, researchers, and engineers towards high performance faster than before.
