    Rumor : Nvidia Pascal To Debut At GTC, Launch In June

    Nvidia is reportedly preparing to debut its next generation Pascal graphics cards at GTC in April with a product launch at Computex in June. Let’s first start with the scheduled debut and demo at this upcoming GTC in April. Whispers have reached us of Nvidia planning to showcase a Pascal graphics card at the show for the very first time.

    In fact, a source claims that this will take place on April 5th during Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang’s keynote. A pascal graphics board will allegedly be showcased on stage during the keynote. This time we’re told that it’s not just going to be a prototype to visually demonstrate the form factor like last year, but actual working Pascal chips.
    Nvidia Seemingly Planning Surprise Pascal Demo At GTC

    Interestingly, all of Nvidia’s scheduled talks at GTC start with one or two alphabets and the digit six. That is they all follow this formula X6###. Where X is one or two letters, six is constant and # is a variable number. Keeping this in mind, the opening keynote of Nvidia’s CEO is given the variable 699.

    As it happens, the four different Nvidia Pascal graphics cards that we had spotted just a few days ago shipping between Nvidia’s different facilities all carried this very same serial number, matching that of Jen-Hsun’s keynote. Are we looking at demo graphics cards here? we simply don’t know right now. Never the less we thought that even if this is merely coincidence it’s intriguing enough to warrant a mention. With that in mind please remember to take this with the proper amount of salty liquorice.

    No Better Time Or Place For Nvidia To Demo Pascal Than This Upcoming GTC In April

    Rumors aside we can’t think of any better event for Nvidia to showcase to the world what actual Pascal graphics cards look like and what they’re capable. After all the architecture itself was introduced and detailed by the company at last year’s GTC. This is really makes the perfect opportunity for the company to show off its highly anticipated Pascal graphics cards. Especially after pascal’s absence from the Drive PX2 demo at CES and it’s substitution with mobility Maxwell had raised so many eye brows.

    First Pascal Graphics Cards Rumored To Launch As Early As June At Computex

    Moving on the second tidbit dealing with Pascal’s actual arrival to market. This one comes directly from sweclockers.com where the site claims that Nvidia is planning to launch its very first lineup of Pascal graphics cards at Computex in June. This launch will specifically be for the mobility lineup going into gaming notebooks. Swerclockers makes no mention of when we should expect desktop Pascal graphics cards but the site goes on to claim that Nvidia is facing challenges bringing Pascal up to speed on TSMC’s 16nm FinFET which they say will in all liklihood throw a wrench in the company’s plans.








    The plan to introduce the mobility lineup in mid June has reportedly been set in motion but could face delays owing to the ambiguity of Pascal’s readiness. As such the probability of a paper launch in Computex or a postponement the launch entirely to a later date is described as being “great” the site reports.
    The reports of Nvidia wanting to launch its chips on the mobile side first are likely grounded in reality. The company will want to deliver mobile Pascal products on time for the OEMs’ product refresh cycle before in the back to school season which spans July to September.
    To a great extent a similar limitation does not exist for desktop PCs for a variety of factors. For one the AIB market commands the lion’s share of the desktop graphics market. Additionally OEMs have much greater flexibility switching out graphics cards in their desktop products. This means that we might be looking at market availability of desktop Pascal graphics cards around Q3 to Q4 of this year.

    Nvidia’s Pascal : Everything We Know Right Now

    We’ve learned last year that Nvidia’s flagship Pascal code named GP100 may have taped out on TSMC’s 16nm FinFET manufacturing process in June. Interestingly just shortly afterwards AMD announced that it had taped out two FinFET chips. It’s absolutely not a coincidence that both companies completed their FinFET designs at the same time. Both are pushing for a very aggressive time to market timetable to debut their next generation FinFET based GPUs this year.










    What we know so far about Nvidia’s flagship Pascal GP100 GPU :

    • Pascal graphics architecture.
    • 2x performance per watt estimated improvement over Maxwell.
    • To launch in 2016, purportedly the second half of the year.
    • DirectX 12 feature level 12_1 or higher.
    • Successor to the GM200 GPU found in the GTX Titan X and GTX 980 Ti.
    • Built on the 16nm FinFET manufacturing process from TSMC.
    • Allegedly has a total of 17 billion transistors, more than twice that of GM200.
    • Will feature four 4-Hi HBM2 stacks, for a total of 16GB of VRAM and 8-Hi stacks for up to 32GB for the professional compute SKUs.
    • Features a 4096-bit memory bus interface, same as AMD’s Fiji GPU power the Fury series.
    • Features NVLink (only compatible with next generation IBM PowerPC server processors)
    • Supports half precision FP16 compute at twice the rate of full precision FP32.

    Nvidia Pascal – 2X Perf/Watt, Stacked Memory, NV-Link And Mixed Precision Compute


    TSMC’s new 16nm FinFET process promises to be significantly more power efficient than planar 28nm. It also promises to bring about a considerable improvement in transistor density. Which would enable Nvidia to build faster, significantly more complex and more power efficient GPUs.








    TSMC’s 16FF+ (FinFET Plus) technology can provide above 65 percent higher speed, around 2 times the density, or 70 percent less power than its 28HPM technology. Comparing with 20SoC technology, 16FF+ provides extra 40% higher speed and 60% power saving. By leveraging the experience of 20SoC technology, TSMC 16FF+ shares the same metal backend process in order to quickly improve yield and demonstrate process maturity for time-to-market value.
    Apart from HBM2 and 16nm there is one big compute-centric feature that Nvidia will debut with Pascal. And it’s NVLink. Pascal will be the first GPU from the company to support this new proprietary server interconnect.





    NVIDIA Volta GPUs and IBM Power9 CPUs Enabled Supercomputers in 2017:The technology targets GPU accelerated servers where the cross-chip communication is extremely bandwidth limited and a major system bottleneck. Nvidia states that NV-Link will be up to 5 to 12 times faster than traditional PCIE 3.0 making it a major step forward in platform atomics. Earlier this year Nvidia announced that IBM will be integrating this new interconnect into its upcoming PowerPC server CPUs. NVLink will debut with Nvidia’s Pascal in 2016 before it makes its way to Volta in 2018.

    NVLink is an energy-efficient, high-bandwidth communications channel that uses up to three times less energy to move data on the node at speeds 5-12 times conventional PCIe Gen3 x16. First available in the NVIDIA Pascal GPU architecture, NVLink enables fast communication between the CPU and the GPU, or between multiple GPUs. Figure 3: NVLink is a key building block in the compute node of Summit and Sierra supercomputers.
    VOLTA GPU Featuring NVLINK and Stacked Memory NVLINK GPU high speed interconnect 80-200 GB/s 3D Stacked Memory 4x Higher Bandwidth (~1 TB/s) 3x Larger Capacity 4x More Energy Efficient per bit.
    NVLink is a key technology in Summit’s and Sierra’s server node architecture, enabling IBM POWER CPUs and NVIDIA GPUs to access each other’s memory fast and seamlessly. From a programmer’s perspective, NVLink erases the visible distinctions of data separately attached to the CPU and the GPU by “merging” the memory systems of the CPU and the GPU with a high-speed interconnect. Because both CPU and GPU have their own memory controllers, the underlying memory systems can be optimized differently (the GPU’s for bandwidth, the CPU’s for latency) while still presenting as a unified memory system to both processors. NVLink offers two distinct benefits for HPC customers. First, it delivers improved application performance, simply by virtue of greatly increased bandwidth between elements of the node. Second, NVLink with Unified Memory technology allows developers to write code much more seamlessly and still achieve high performance. via NVIDIA News











    Unlike with Maxwell, Nvidia has laid major focus on compute and GPGPU acceleration with Pascal. The slew of new features and technologies that Nvidia will debut with Pascal emphasize this focus. Including the use of next generation stacked High Bandwidth Memory, high-speed NVLink GPU interconnect and the addition of mixed precision compute at double the rate of full precision compute to push perf/watt. We can’t wait to see Pascal in action later this year, but until then stay tuned for the latest.

    NVIDIA rumored to unveil Titan X successor in April, launch in June


    I've already reported that NVIDIA would unveil its new Pascal-based Titan X successor at its GPU Technology Conference in early April, but we should expect a "surprise" Pascal demo at GTC according to the new rumors.


    NVIDIA co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will be kicking off his usual opening keynote on April 5 at 9AM PST, where we should be greeted by the next-gen GeForce GTX Titan X, based on the Pascal architecture. Now, NVIDIA is set to hit the 16nm process with Pascal, as well as using HBM2 - so we might see the Titan X successor unveiled, but not launched at GTC. When will NVIDIA launch the Pascal-based Titan X successor? According to the rumors, sometime around June - just like it did with the GTX 980 Ti last year.

    Alguma confusão com datas de lançamento... bem, pelo menos na GDC 2016 alguma coisa deve ser revelada.

    Parece que sim.
    Acho que deviam amadurecer e fazer ao contrário, como com a 750ti>760>770>780>780ti. E depois as demais GT (710,720,730,740...), mas eles é que sabem...

    NVIDIA Planning GeForce Pascal GPUs For Mobility Lineup For Mid-June – Will Have Notebooks on Display at Computex 2016

    NVIDIA is going to unveil Pascal, their most advanced GPU to date at GTC 2016. The unveiling would soon be followed by a full fledged launch of the new GeForce/Tesla/Quadro cards that will be available to consumers who aim higher performance, higher efficiency and increased VRAM in the form of HBM2. NVIDIA will have a complete new lineup for desktop and mobility users by mid of 2016.

    NVIDIA Pascal “Mobility GeForce” GPUs Arriving in Mid-June – Pitched For Back To School Season

    According to information posted by Sweclockers, it is suggested that NVIDIA’s Pascal GPUs will be arriving in mid-June for mobility platforms. Knowing that AMD will also have Polaris based GPUs ready for Mid-2016, it will be good to see more options to select from on notebook platforms. NVIDIA and AMD will be eyeing the Back to School season for the wide availability of their next generation GPUs in notebooks so retail availability by mid of June is a must.
    According to the report, NVIDIA has internally disclosed a shipping date of 16th June to their partners for Pascal mobility GPUs. The products would be announced and put on display at Computex 2016 before that which starts in first week of June. In regards to the naming scheme of the new Pascal chips, we have no confirmation on hints. Since the last cards used the GeForce 900 series branding, one would suggest that NVIDIA will use the GeForce 1000 series naming for the new cards but that might not be the case. After the GeForce 9 series cards, NVIDIA jumped to the 200 series nomenclature, since this is the end of the GeForce 900 series, NVIDIA could introduce a new branding for their cards.
    Looking at the current state of the notebook GPUs, we see that NVIDIA remains dominant in both performance and efficiency. Their Maxwell architecture brought desktop-class graphics performance to notebooks with the GeForce GTX 970M, GeForce GTX 980M and the GeForce GTX 980 mobility chips. Maxwell which was NVIDIA’s bet on gaining higher efficiency on an existing process node (28nm) was a success which led to a huge market share gain during 2015 and notebook GPU shipments for NVIDIA remained highest in Q4 2015.

    AMD on the other hand brought a faster clocked Tonga XT GPU on the mobility front but it wasn’t available on a wide range of notebooks and couldn’t be compared to GM204 in terms of efficiency and performance due to a wide gap in both regards. AMD is going to try and get the same efficiency gains with their upcoming, FinFET based Polaris cards which NVIDIA did two years ago with Maxwell (GM107).
    Advertisements

    AMD already demonstrated a low power card based on Polaris delivering a higher performance to watt ratio compared to NVIDIA’s 28nm process based GTX 950 graphics card. While not an apples-to-apple comparison since NVIDIA would also have a FinFET based low-power solution in their Pascal lineup, the test showed the advantages of FinFET which consumed much lower power to deliver the same frame rate hence improving the efficiency up to 2.5 times compared to previous generation GCN cards.
    TSMC To Double The 16nm Chip Production in March 2016

    In other news, Digitimes has reported that reports from Taiwan based Economic Daily news reveals that TSMC will double their 16nm chip production in the current month. The report mentions that the output capacity of TSMC’s 16nm plants (Currently at 40,000 chips for February 2016) will reach 80,000 wafers, double the amount currently being produced. It should be noted that customers like NVIDIA and Apple will be building their chips upon the new 16nm FinFET nodes from TSMC.

    TSMC co-CEO CC Wei remarked at the company’s most recent investors meeting that TSMC‘s share of the 14/16nm foundry market segment will rise above 70% in 2016 from around 40% in 2015. The foundry’s 16nm FinFET processes consisting of 16FF (16nm FinFET), 16FF+ (16nm FinFET Plus) and 16FFC (16nm FinFET Compact) will generate more than 20% of its total wafer revenues in 2016. via Digitimes
    While NVIDIA’s mobility lineup would not be packing any GP100 based SKU, it will certainly get the same approach as Maxwell where a high-end desktop oriented Pascal GPU will be available on the mobility front without having any disabled cores and without compromising on the clock speeds. The FinFET architecture leads to lower power consumption and the increase in transistor density leads to better performance off the GPU. There’s no doubt that NVIDIA and AMD are going to have even powerful solutions designed for the note book platforms, users who are aiming to get a notebook right now can go for GeForce 900M based solutions but users who can wait for a bit would be in a treat for even more performance gains with Pascal and Polaris.

    Nvidia Pascal Graphics Cards Spotted, Valued At $900 & $600 – Potential GTC 2016 Demo Units

    The inevitable release of Nvidia’s next generation 16nm Pascal graphics cards with stacked high bandwidth memory is inching closer. Only three weeks ago we discovered four different Nvidia Pascal graphics cards being shipped across Nvidia’s testing facilities. Today we’re reporting on two more graphics boards. One that’s entirely new and another that’s an updated design that may be progressing towards full functionality soon.

    We reported two weeks ago that Nvidia is rumored to demo its next generation Pascal graphics cards at GTC in April with a product launch at Computex in June. Whispers have reached us of Nvidia planning to showcase a Pascal graphics card at the show for the very first time.
    A source claimed that this will take place on April 5th during Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang’s keynote. A pascal graphics board will allegedly be showcased on stage during the keynote. We were told that it’s not just going to be a prototype to visually demonstrate the form factor like last year, but an actual working Pascal graphics card.
    Two New Nvidia Pascal Graphics Cards Spotted, Valued At $900 & $600 – Potential GTC Demo Units

    Our two new Nvidia graphics boards are listed as “COMPUTER GRAPHICS CARDS” in Nvidia’s shipping description. Both carry hefty per unit values. The first is valued at $600 and the second at $900. So we’re potentially looking at high-end graphics cards here. However, it’s still important to note that these values don’t always accurately reflect actual product pricing and can be vastly different from actual product cost and selling price.

    Both boards start with the same 699 serial number. We’ve pointed out in a previous article that the earliest record of a board carrying that serial number appears in December. So we know that we’re looking at Nvidia graphics boards that are new and did not exist at any point before December. This could potentially explain Pascal’s absence from CES in January if no Pascal graphics cards were ready at the time. Which led to Nvidia’s decision to showcase the Pascal Drive PX2 module with Maxwell GPUs instead.
    The two new boards are as follows :
    Serial Number Value Per Unit
    699-1G610-0000-000 $600
    699-12914-0076-100 $900
    The second entry is one that we’ve seen before, all be it with a slightly different serial number. The card we had seen earlier was shipped in February and had the following serial number : 699-12914-0071-100 and carried a significantly lower value of $500, vs the new iteration which is listed at $900. This indicates that in all likelihood more components have been added to the board and it’s inching closer to full operational capacity. Hopefully in time for the upcoming GPU Technology Conference in April.
    Could These Nvidia Pascal Graphics Cards Be GTC Demo Units?

    Interestingly, all of Nvidia’s scheduled talks at GTC start with one or two alphabets and the digit six. That is they all follow this formula X6###. Where X is one or two letters, six is constant and # is a variable number. Keeping this in mind, the opening keynote of Nvidia’s CEO is given the variable 699.

    As it happens, all six Nvidia graphics cards that have appeared in shipping records carried this very same serial number, matching that of Jen-Hsun’s keynote. These digits could be a code name for Pascal inside Nvidia which is why we’re seeing them on these graphics cards and Jen-Hsun’s keynote. Whatever they actually stand for we know we’ve seen them enough times to know that it’s not a coincidence.
    There’s no way of knowing for certain whether these are GP100 or GP104 boards as of yet. Interestingly GP100 or “Big Pascal” as we’d like to call it has been spotted a few months back. Back then Nvidia only had GPUs but there was no evidence of any actual boards. So looks like Pascal has come a long way since then.

    What we know so far about Nvidia’s flagship Pascal GP100 GPU :

    • Pascal graphics architecture.
    • 2x performance per watt estimated improvement over Maxwell.
    • To launch in 2016, purportedly the second half of the year.
    • DirectX 12 feature level 12_1 or higher.
    • Successor to the GM200 GPU found in the GTX Titan X and GTX 980 Ti.
    • Built on the 16nm FinFET manufacturing process from TSMC.
    • Allegedly has a total of 17 billion transistors, more than twice that of GM200.
    • Will feature four 4-Hi HBM2 stacks, for a total of 16GB of VRAM and 8-Hi stacks for up to 32GB for the professional compute SKUs.
    • Features a 4096-bit memory bus interface, same as AMD’s Fiji GPU power the Fury series.
    • Features NVLink (only compatible with next generation IBM PowerPC server processors)
    • Supports half precision FP16 compute at twice the rate of full precision FP32.

    We’ve learned last year that Nvidia’s flagship Pascal code named GP100 may have taped out on TSMC’s 16nm FinFET manufacturing process in June. Interestingly just shortly afterwards AMD announced that it had taped out two FinFET chips. It’s absolutely not a coincidence that both companies completed their FinFET designs at the same time. Both are pushing for a very aggressive time to market timetable to debut their next generation FinFET based GPUs this year.
    Word On The Street Is That We Might See The First Pascal Graphics Cards Launch In June – Mobility Versions To Launch First

    This one comes directly from sweclockers.com where the site has claimed on two occasions over the past few weeks that Nvidia is planning to launch its very first lineup of Pascal graphics cards around Computex in June. This launch will specifically be for the mobility lineup going into gaming notebooks. Swerclockers makes no mention of when we should expect desktop Pascal graphics cards but the site goes on to claim that Nvidia is facing challenges bringing Pascal up to speed on TSMC’s 16nm FinFET which they say may throw a wrench in the plans and result in postponement.








    The plan to introduce the mobility lineup in mid June has reportedly been set in motion but could face delays owing to the ambiguity of Pascal’s readiness. As such the probability of a paper launch in Computex or a postponement the launch entirely to a later date is described as being “great” the site reports.

    Our take is that the reports of Nvidia wanting to launch its chips on the mobile side first are likely grounded in reality. The company will want to deliver mobile Pascal products on time for the OEMs’ product refresh cycle before they roll out new products for the back to school season which spans July to September.
    To a great extent a similar limitation does not exist for desktop PCs for a variety of factors. For one the AIB market commands the lion’s share of the desktop graphics market. Additionally OEMs have much greater flexibility switching out graphics cards in their desktop products. This means that we might be looking at market availability of desktop Pascal graphics cards around Q3 to Q4 of this year.

    Nvidia Pascal – 2X Perf/Watt, Stacked Memory, NV-Link And Mixed Precision Compute


    TSMC’s new 16nm FinFET process promises to be significantly more power efficient than planar 28nm. It also promises to bring about a considerable improvement in transistor density. Which would enable Nvidia to build faster, significantly more complex and more power efficient GPUs.








    TSMC’s 16FF+ (FinFET Plus) technology can provide above 65 percent higher speed, around 2 times the density, or 70 percent less power than its 28HPM technology. Comparing with 20SoC technology, 16FF+ provides extra 40% higher speed and 60% power saving. By leveraging the experience of 20SoC technology, TSMC 16FF+ shares the same metal backend process in order to quickly improve yield and demonstrate process maturity for time-to-market value.
    Apart from HBM2 and 16nm there is one big compute-centric feature that Nvidia will debut with Pascal. And it’s NVLink. Pascal will be the first GPU from the company to support this new proprietary server interconnect.





    NVIDIA Volta GPUs and IBM Power9 CPUs Enabled Supercomputers in 2017:The technology targets GPU accelerated servers where the cross-chip communication is extremely bandwidth limited and a major system bottleneck. Nvidia states that NV-Link will be up to 5 to 12 times faster than traditional PCIE 3.0 making it a major step forward in platform atomics. Earlier this year Nvidia announced that IBM will be integrating this new interconnect into its upcoming PowerPC server CPUs. NVLink will debut with Nvidia’s Pascal in 2016 before it makes its way to Volta in 2018.

    NVLink is an energy-efficient, high-bandwidth communications channel that uses up to three times less energy to move data on the node at speeds 5-12 times conventional PCIe Gen3 x16. First available in the NVIDIA Pascal GPU architecture, NVLink enables fast communication between the CPU and the GPU, or between multiple GPUs. Figure 3: NVLink is a key building block in the compute node of Summit and Sierra supercomputers.
    VOLTA GPU Featuring NVLINK and Stacked Memory NVLINK GPU high speed interconnect 80-200 GB/s 3D Stacked Memory 4x Higher Bandwidth (~1 TB/s) 3x Larger Capacity 4x More Energy Efficient per bit.
    NVLink is a key technology in Summit’s and Sierra’s server node architecture, enabling IBM POWER CPUs and NVIDIA GPUs to access each other’s memory fast and seamlessly. From a programmer’s perspective, NVLink erases the visible distinctions of data separately attached to the CPU and the GPU by “merging” the memory systems of the CPU and the GPU with a high-speed interconnect. Because both CPU and GPU have their own memory controllers, the underlying memory systems can be optimized differently (the GPU’s for bandwidth, the CPU’s for latency) while still presenting as a unified memory system to both processors. NVLink offers two distinct benefits for HPC customers. First, it delivers improved application performance, simply by virtue of greatly increased bandwidth between elements of the node. Second, NVLink with Unified Memory technology allows developers to write code much more seamlessly and still achieve high performance. via NVIDIA News













    Unlike with Maxwell, Nvidia has laid major focus on compute and GPGPU acceleration with Pascal. The slew of new features and technologies that Nvidia will debut with Pascal emphasize this focus. Including the use of next generation stacked High Bandwidth Memory, high-speed NVLink GPU interconnect and the addition of mixed precision compute at double the rate of full precision compute to push perf/watt. We can’t wait to see Pascal in action later this year, but until then stay tuned for the latest.

    NVIDIA's next-gen GPUs spotted, priced at between $600-$1100

    As we inch closer to the Game Developers Conference next week, and NVIDIA's own GPU Technology Conference in the first week of April, we're hearing more on NVIDIA's next-gen Pascal-based video cards.





    According to a listing on the Zauba database, there are four different variants that we could see shown off in the very near future. They're priced at $600, $700, $900 and $1100 - where I think the $900 and $1100 cards could be Pascal-based GeForce GTX Titan X successors. I think we'll see a consumer-orientated card with 16GB of HBM2, while there'll be a higher-end Titan X successor with 32GB of HBM2 - remember, that HBM2 provides up to 1024GB/sec of memory bandwidth, up from the 334GB/sec on the 384-bit memory bus on the GTX 980 Ti and Titan X.

    NVIDIA co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang kicks off his opening keynote to GTC on April 5, where we should be introduced to a Pascal video card at the time. I can barely contain my excitement, as by then we'll be introduced to something "spicy" from AMD, and not even two weeks later NVIDIA will come out stomping with Pascal.

    Nvidia Pascal GPUs spotted en route to testing facilities



    Shipping values priced between $608 and $810 USD per unit

    Any time a new batch of GPUs are ready to be sent from a manufacturing facility overseas to a supply partner for testing and metrics, there are always debugging and testing parts sent ahead of time to ensure that silicon is quickly brought to market without suffering silicon respin and unforeseen manufacturing delays.

    Over the past two months, several sources have begun seeing Pascal GPU testing parts sent from China and Taiwan to India for testing. More recently, however, some actual Pascal-based GPU units have been shipping over the course of February and are on track to make a splash at Nvidia’s 2016 GPU Technology Conference next month.
    Zauba is an India-based import and export database that allows corporate clients to track and access daily import and export shipment records to and from different countries and regions, discover new markets and gain new insights into international trade and new market opportunities.
    As we wrote in February, at least four Pascal-based GPUs have been shipped from TSMC manufacturing facilities in China to Nvidia’s testing and validation facilities in India. All four models contain the same serial number prefix beginning with “699.” The four models are the 699-2H403-0201-500, 699-1H400-0000-100, 699-1G411-0000-000, and the 699-12914-0071-100.
    According to the Zauba database, the most recent shipment for the 699-2H403-0201-500 was February 5, 2016, originating from China with a value of $608 USD per unit. The most recent shipment for the 699-1H400-0000-100 was December 16, 2015, originating from China with a value of $668 USD per unit. The most recent shipment for the 699-1G411-0000-000 was February 26, 2016, originating from China with a fluctuating value between $606 and $751 USD per unit. The most recent shipment for the 699-12914-0071-100 was February 4, 2016, originating from China with a value of $810 USD per unit.

    TweakTown senior GPU editor Anthony Garreffa notes that the higher-priced 699-1G411-0000-000 and 699-12914-0071-100 units could very well be the successors to the Maxwell-based Geforce GTX 980 Ti and the Geforce GTX Titan X, both based on the flagship 28-nanometer GM200 GPU. These chips are expected to come with an impressive 16GB and 32GB of High Bandwidth Memory 2 (HBM2) VRAM achieved using 4-Hi and 8-Hi stacks.



    Image credit: WCCFTech
    The flagship GP100 (“Geforce Pascal 100”) GPU will be the successor to the GM200 (“Geforce Maxwell 200”) GPU and features up to twice the performance-per-watt of its predecessor. Nvidia’s GP100 will contain a total of 17 billion transistors, over twice the number found in the GM200. It will also feature Nvidia NVLINK, a new proprietary ultra-high speed interconnect technology exclusively for Nvidia Geforce GPUs that will enable communication between CPU and GPU, and between GPUs at data rates between 80GB/s and 200GB/s.
    The company is hosting its annual GPU Technology Conference from April 4th to 7th in San Jose, California, and we expect this will be a prime opportunity for CEO Jen-Hsun Huang and senior Nvidia graphics architects to show the international GPGPU developer community and the rest of the world the incredible quantum leap in performance that Pascal will offer compared to 28-nanometer Maxwell chips.
    We will be at GTC 2016 this year and look forward to sharing more concrete details on Pascal part numbers, retail pricing, and last but not least, the SKU naming scheme that Pascal will adopt as coming after the Maxwell-based “Geforce GTX 900 Series.”

    NVIDIA 16nm Pascal Powered GeForce GTX 1080 Launching in May – Uses Full GP104 GPU With 2x Perf Per Watt and 8 GB Memory

    NVIDIA is on the verge of launching their first 16nm FinFET based products featuring the highest performance and power efficiency to date. Pascal which is the name of their upcoming GPU architecture is built from ground up to deliver not only the best gaming performance but also the best compute performance. NVIDIA is going to present their Pascal GPUs at GTC 2016 but it seems like we already have a hint at when the consumer variant will be launching as Benchlife reports that NVIDIA is prepping the GeForce GTX 1080 for launch in May.

    NVIDIA’s High-Performance GeForce GTX 1080 Rumored To Launch in May – Features GP104 Core, GP100 Consumer Variant Ships Later

    We have long been awaiting to learn some information on the Pascal GPUs regarding which NVIDIA has kept really silent but it seems like the company is getting ready for a big showcase at GTC 2016. NVIDIA’s CEO, Jen Hsun Huang himself will deliver the opening keynote of GTC and present not only their latest 16nm FinFET architecture but the corresponding cards that utilize the Pascal GPUs.

    Word is that NVIDIA’s Pascal will aim at both consumer and server markets as the chip to be in headlines would be the GP100 which is the flagship GPU in the Pascal lineup and the full fledged beast that will be shipping with Tesla and Quadro brands first. The consumer side will not be left alone as NVIDIA will launch their new graphics card based on the GP104 which will be solely aimed at gamers in Q2 2016. These cards will include new graphic side enhancements along with software side enhancements for APIs such as Vulkan and DirectX 12.
    NVIDIA’s Gaming (GP104) Pascal GPUs To Feature Up To 8 GB GDDR5 Memory and Single 8-Pin Connector

    The report mentions that NVIDIA’s GP104 will be utilized by a graphics card called the GeForce GTX 1080. Know we don’t know whether NVIDIA will be aiming for a 1000 series naming scheme or skipping it for something far more simpler but the name could change at any point since the launch is still a few months away. The GeForce GTX 1080 will be the fastest consumer offering for a while and while NVIDIA will also have the GTX 1070 in the same time frame, the latter will fall below the 1080 performance since it will be using a cut down configuration.
    There are some significant details in the mentioned report which state that NVIDIA’s GP104 based Pascal cards will feature up to 8 GB GDDR5 memory. This brings the memory capacity to the same amount as AMD’s current Radeon R9 390 series graphics cards which are hit among the public for their great price to performance value. The report says that GDDR5 is the memory standard to be used on the GP104 series cards and there remains a possibility where AIBs can start shipping higher performance GDDR5X chips based cards later on since Micron is expected to start mass production in Summer of 2016.

    Pascal Features 2x Compute Efficiency Compared To Maxwell
    Performance side of things, NVIDIA will have their GP104 GPUs pitted directly against AMD’s Radeon Fury and high-end Polaris (Mid-2016) graphics cards while the GP100 consumer variant (New Titan) will be competing against the flagship Polaris based graphics cards. The GP100 consumer variant will feature up to 16 GB HBM2 memory while the HPC variants will ship with up to 32 GB HBM2 memory.

    It is stated that Samsung is in direct cooperation with NVIDIA on deployment of HBM2 memory for their cards and have already begun production as of early 2016. SK Hynix on the other hand is directly cooperating with AMD for the development of the new HBM2 memory dies for their Polaris GPUs however SK Hynix has stated to commence mass production in Q3 2016.
    Other details that are mentioned suggest that the GeForce GTX 1080 will be shipping on 27th May which is just a few days before Computex so its probable that NVIDIA may host a Pre-Computex event to display their Pascal consumer variants. The reference variants will feature 2 Display Port, 1 HDMI and a single DVI display output. The custom models are said to start shipping in June so AIBs will have a great chance to showcase their new products at Computex 2016.

    Finally, we are expected to see a single 8-Pin power connector on the GP104 cards which will be a good approach from the dual 6-Pin configuration required on current graphics boards. A single 8-Pin connector can suck 150W of power while a single 6-Pin connector sucks 75W of power which is the same as the PCI-Express slot. Pascal is known to deliver more than 2x the performance per watt of Maxwell. Maxwell itself was NVIDIA’s bet on power efficiency and it turned out really well for the company, Pascal is further going to take NVIDIA’s lead in the efficiency department which has been their strongest suit since Kepler GPU in 2012. NVIDIA is also expected to launch their mobility Pascal GPUs in mid of June.

    More Pascal Boards Spotted on Zauba – Listed on March 9th, Ready For Production



    The list of Pascal boards showing up on Zauba are increasing every passing month and in March 2016, 7 new listings of Pascal boards were spotted bearing the codename of 699-12914-0000-100, 699-1G610-0000-000, 699-12914-0076-100. This suggests that NVIDIA is actively testing new boards which will reach production in Q2 2016.
    What we know so far about Nvidia’s flagship Pascal GP100 GPU :

    • Pascal graphics architecture.
    • 2x performance per watt estimated improvement over Maxwell.
    • To launch in 2016, purportedly the second half of the year.
    • DirectX 12 feature level 12_1 or higher.
    • Successor to the GM200 GPU found in the GTX Titan X and GTX 980 Ti.
    • Built on the 16nm FinFET manufacturing process from TSMC.
    • Allegedly has a total of 17 billion transistors, more than twice that of GM200.
    • Will feature four 4-Hi HBM2 stacks, for a total of 16GB of VRAM and 8-Hi stacks for up to 32GB for the professional compute SKUs.
    • Features a 4096-bit memory bus interface, same as AMD’s Fiji GPU power the Fury series.
    • Features NVLink (only compatible with next generation IBM PowerPC server processors)
    • Supports half precision FP16 compute at twice the rate of full precision FP32.

    TSMC To Double 16nm FinFET Chip Production in March 2016

    In other news, Digitimes had reported that reports from Taiwan based Economic Daily news reveals that TSMC will double their 16nm chip production in the current month. The report mentions that the output capacity of TSMC’s 16nm plants (Currently at 40,000 chips for February 2016) will reach 80,000 wafers, double the amount currently being produced. It should be noted that customers like NVIDIA and Apple will be building their chips upon the new 16nm FinFET nodes from TSMC.
    Rumors alleged that the recent Taiwan earthquake had badly affected the manufacturing capacity of TSMC’s 16nm process node however doubling of the capacity by TSMC shows that their plants remain unaffected and production is going smoothly and at a very fast pace to fill in orders from NVIDIA and Apple for their next gen products.

    TSMC co-CEO CC Wei remarked at the company’s most recent investors meeting that TSMC‘s share of the 14/16nm foundry market segment will rise above 70% in 2016 from around 40% in 2015. The foundry’s 16nm FinFET processes consisting of 16FF (16nm FinFET), 16FF+ (16nm FinFET Plus) and 16FFC (16nm FinFET Compact) will generate more than 20% of its total wafer revenues in 2016. via Digitimes
    Good times are ahead as more powerful and energy efficient graphics cards enter the market. Pascal is said to be a game changer for NVIDIA as it will further strengthen their roots in the HPC and Server markets while offering great new gaming products in the GeForce lineup which is the most popular platform among PC gamers. While the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 are said to launch in late Q2 2016, the GP100 consumer variants will be arriving when a steady supply is available for both consumer and professional markets. Gamers will have the next best support with NVIDIA for VR/AR and 4K gaming experiences which are going to stir up the gaming market this year.

    Boas!
    Ela pode consumir até 225w o que pode ou não ser interessante...
    Eu aposto para ai nos 175w...

    Eu estou já com o guito de parte para comprar o novo topo de gama deles (isto se a performance efectivamente duplicar).

    Cumprimentos,

    [UPDATED] Nvidia Pascal GTX 1080 To Debut In April At GTC 2016, Launch This Summer Alongside GTX 1070


    [UPDATED 03/11/2016 12:45 PM]
    We’ve reported recently that Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang is planning to unveil the first ever Pascal graphics card at next month’s upcoming GPU Technology Conference. With a plan to launch the first line-up of Pascal graphics cards at Computex this summer. Today, according to a report from benchlife, the graphics card in question to be unveiled next month is the GTX 1080. Based on the GP104 Pascal GPU, boasting 8GB of GDDR5/GDDR5X memory and a single 8-pin connector.
    The report indicates that indeed, the rumors that have been floating around in the past couple of weeks seem to be accurate. That is Pascal will debut at GTC and launch at Computex. Interestingly, we’ve also just received another report indicating that a GTX 1070 launch will accompany the GTX 1080 and will be available in Q3 2016 this summer.

    (isto se a performance efectivamente duplicar)
    Achas que vai ser assim? Acho que a performance nao vai duplicar ja. Os consumos é que vao ser metade de inicio. A performance deve ser ligeiramente superior ao que ja existe e possivelmente em fim de vida, ser x vezes e meia superior ao actual
    Tipo, agora 225 watts "fazem" 60fps. As novas graficas devem com 113w fazerem 61 fps. Quando baterem nos 225w, farão 120fps.
    Isto, é marketing. Que é o que estamos habituados a levar.

    Latest GTX 1080 rumours



    Pascal GP104 GPU core featuring 8GB of GDDR5X
    More rumours are cropping up about Nvidia’s next graphics card, reportedly called the GTX 1080 which should be out soon.

    Chinese website BenchLife, VideoCardz reports that the card will either be called the GTX 1080 or GTX 1800 and that it will take advantage of a Pascal GP104 GPU core featuring 8GB of GDDR5X. What is missing is HBM2, or second-generation high-bandwidth memory. That is not to say it will not have it, just that the source didnt have the details.
    The rumour says that Pascal will launch in April and GTX 1080/1800 launch in May 27. The GTX 1080/1800 has a GP104 Pascal GPU and GTX 1080/1800 has 8GB GDDR5X memory. The GTX 1080/1800 has one 8pin power connector and the GTX 1080/1800 has 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, 2x DisplayPort. First Pascal board with HBM would be GP100 (Big Pascal)
    It would appear that the GTX 1080 would feature an 8-pin power connector, meaning it will max out at 225W. Nvidia’s GTX 980 card has a 165W limit, while theGTX 980 Ti maxes out at 250W.
    Of course this is just rumour and speculation, but the Chinese sources have been right before so they are worth a mention.

    Boa tarde,

    Mas quando raio é que a Nvidia cospe cá para fora isto? Carago, farto de esperar. A GTX 750 2GB tem de ir dar uma volta, tenho de passar para os 4GB de VRAM de preferência HBM 2.0 já, se não que seja GDDR5X.

    Cumprimentos.
