GV100 is the 'full fat' Volta GPU that will most likely power the Volta-based Titan X graphics card, featuring HBM2 technology - this is 'Big Volta'. The new tease of GV100 was in AIDA64's latest update, where the developers found a PCI device ID belonging to 1D81 = Graphics Device [GV100]. Interesting way of finding out about it, huh?

Now bring on GTC 2017, where we should hopefully learn everything about Volta.
