NVIDIA has already released its Volta-based Tesla V100 graphics card, but they've now detailed their new Volta V100 GPU based on the PCIe standard. This rides the news of AMD announcing its new Radeon Instinct MI25 graphics card, with 16GB of HBM2.
The new NVIDIA Volta V100 is built on the new 12nm FFN (FinFET NVIDIA) node from TSMC, and is custom built for NVIDIA's Volta GPUs. Inside, there's an amazing 21 billion transistors, 5120 CUDA cores, 80 SMs, 40 TPCs, and GPU clocks of 1370/1455MHz for base and boost, respectively. NVIDIA has tapped 16GB of HBM2 with a 4096-bit memory bus that provides a huge 900GB/sec of bandwidth.
NVIDIA's new PCIe-based Volta V100 doesn't support NVLINK of course, but it sports a dual-slot cooler with black/gold color scheme that looks slick as hell. But, how does it compare to the new Radeon Instinct MI25 graphics card? Let's take a look.
- Radeon Instinct MI25: FP16 @ 24.6 TFLOPs
- NVIDIA Volta V100 PCIe: FP16 @ 28 TFLOPs
- Radeon Instinct MI25: FP32 @ 12.3 TFLOPs
- NVIDIA Volta V100 PCIe: FP32 @ 14 TFLOPs
