    Nvidia reveals Volta next gen GPU platform


    NVIDIA reveals Volta next-gen GPU platform

    By Michael Gorman posted Mar 19th, 2013 at 2:17 PM


    We're here at NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, and company CEO Jen Hsun-Huang has just revealed the next step in its GPU roadmap. Called Volta, it's scheduled to arrive after Maxwell, and will advance GPU technology with a ridiculous amount of memory bandwidth. Volta GPUs will have access to up to 1TB per second of bandwidth by stacking the DRAM on top of the GPU itself, with a silica substrate between them. Then, by cutting a hole through the silicon and connecting each layer it's possible to move, according to Huang "all of the data from a full Blu-Ray disc through the chip in 1/50th of a second." We aren't exactly sure what that means for graphics, but being able to process data that quickly is bound to be a boon for gamers... whenever Volta actually arrives, of course.

    These wont be out until probably 2016+ but they sound pretty crazy.

    1TB bandwidth, thats really unrealistic considering the bandwidth of todays cards

    Ironic when they are out bashing another power platform

    These aren't due out for a few years. The 690 GTX has almost 400 GB/sec... I don't see how 1 TB would seem unrealistic.

    How is that unrealistic?

    It's less than 4 times more than current high end cards have for a single GPU. The Nvidia Titan has 288 GBps bandwidth from a single GPU right now. The dual GPUs of the 690 GTX have 386 GBps bandwidth in total. Surely you don't think a 3-4X improvement over the next 3 years is unrealistic. It's right in line with Moore's Law.

    I don't why but I flashback several years, ie we hadn't even reached 70gb/sec lol
    So yeah natural progression then given whats available now and whats in the upcoming consoles.

    Does this mean it is the most powerful one at the moment, I believe not and i see a new one coming out soon from another

    You know technology moves so so fast

    It will be another overpriced GPU just like all the other ones. I'll stick with Radeon.
