Nvidia Super Computers via Blackwell


Recommended Posts

Quote

 

NVIDIA has officially launched its next-generation Blackwell platform, and with it comes a set of new and elaborate hardware for fueling the next stage in the AI craze, including some that the company says are powerful enough to enable “trillion-parameter-scale AI models.” These would include the GB200 NVL72, a new exascale computer that can deliver up to 1,440 PFLOPS and 3,240 TFLOPS of performance thanks in part to its 70+ Blackwell GPUs—new GPUs based on TSMC’s 4NP process that feature 208 billion transistors.

NVIDIA Announces Blackwell GPUs with 208 Billion Transistors, including GB200 System Supporting 72 Blackwell GPUs and 13.5 TB of HBM3e Memory (msn.com)

 

China has the world's top super computer today (that is not undisclosed). It's top super computer is about 2 exoflops. Nvidia is going to be shipping super computer systems that can do 2 exoflops with just a couple racks under blackwell. 

 

Just food for thought.

Technology is already progressing at a pace that is unreal, combine that with the push companies (especially Nvidia) are making in light of AI, the above news is not too surprising. I think the push for raw power for AI will fall into other sectors bringing us technological advances across the board. 

 

I am interested in seeing what Blackwell brings us in the gaming GPU market. All is rumour right now but would love to see what sort of uplift it has over Ada Lovelace. Considering the real push for AI happened after Ada, it is conceivable that Blackwell will bring significant performance over the past gen, only time will tell.

(Gazing into my crystal bic pen...) I predict that if Nvidia releases a consumer Blackwell card it will either be so neutered that it's like the next generation of card (an additional low 20% increase performance at most) OR it will be so far out of price reach that it will be like buying during the pandemic again.Anyone have a spare kidney?
