Yesterday we announced that NVIDIA will begin mass production of its pilot phase Pascal based GPUs in Q2 of next year. Today we have details about the company’s first GPU based on new architecture, we are talking about Pascal GP100, which is listed as a product graduated to testing and evaluation phase.
NVIDIA Pascal GP100 Graphics Core is now in Testing Phase
Manufactured by TSMC in a manufacturing process of 16nm FinFET +, we have a new architecture that will be able to handle up to 32 GB of HBM2 memory and feature will feature no less than 17 billion transistors. Although it is likely that the top end product based on Pascal GP100 and will support no more than 16 GB of memory. The NVIDIA GP100 will also feature an HBM2 memory interface.
According to the data we can believe that new high-end models of NVIDIA’s GPUs based on this architecture will be around 60-90 percent faster than the GeForce GTX Titan X. On the other hand, we have a successor to Pascal, talking about NVIDIA Volta, which has been delayed and will be released in the 2018, a logical move knowing that Pascal will not hit the market until late 2016.
