GTC 2016 - World Exclusive - We've just had some breaking news delivered to us, on NVIDIA's next-generation video card. We don't have specifics to share with you right now, but we do know that it's going to be what we expected: a freakin' monster.
I expected NVIDIA's next-gen video card to be something quite special, thanks to it being based on the Holy Trinity of GPU upgrades - the shift from the 28nm to 16nm FinFET process, the new exciting Pascal architecture and the insanely fast HBM2 memory. Well, according to our exclusive source - NVIDIA's new video card was right on the expectations that I was able to summarise about in the last few months.
We should expect the unannounced video cards to be a beast, with an option between 8/16GB of VRAM or 16/32GB of VRAM. The performance numbers have not been unveiled, and neither has the new naming or branding for the card - but we do know it's going to be insanely powerful. I'm expecting it to be ~1.5x the power of the GeForce GTX Titan X, and the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X (which runs HBM1 @ 512GB/sec).
The opening keynote by NVIDIA co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will kick off in less than 8 hours from now at 9AM PST, where we will be there covering it all live for you. I'm beyond excited.
