Nvidia Pascal GP100 Based Titan Grade GPU Is Currently In Testing Along with 3 Other Pascal GPUs
Nvidia is currently testing and validating four of its next-gen Pascal-based GPUs, including the company’s flagship GP100 graphics card.
The GPUs in question, were spotted going from the fabrication plants in Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to Nvidia’s testing facilities in India. Labelled “Computer Graphics Cards,” all the four GPUs carry the same serial number of “699” which first came to light back in December last year. Below are the four different boards with the following serial numbers:
The first three units all seem like iteration changes between them, but the last 12914 label is an entirely different board. We are not certain but this could be the flagship GP100 or “Big Pascal,” which is the inevitable successor to Nvidia’s GTX Titan X.
Built on TSMC’s 16nm FinFET manufacturing process, the GP100 GPU will feature four 4-Hi HBM2 stacks to achieve 16 GB of VRAM in total, and 8-Hi stacks to reach up to 32 GB for the professional compute SKUs. It includes nearly 17 billion transistors in a relatively smaller packing, offering up to twice the performance per watt improvement over the predessor Maxwell.
Nvidia is expected to unveil the Titan grade products based on the Pascal GP100 in April at their GPU Technology Conference.
