NVIDIA was the first to market with a HBM2-based graphics card with its Tesla P100, but it was limited the NVIDIA's super-fast NVLink interface. The company has now just released the Tesla P100 for PCIe-based servers, rocking some serious power.


NVIDIA's new Tesla P100 for PCIe rocks 12GB or 16GB of HBM2 RAM at 549GB/sec and 732GB/sec, respectively. Both versions of the card feature 9.3TFLOPs of single-precision performance.


The big difference between the Tesla P100 in PCIe and NVLink form is that NVLink is capable of a whopping 160GB/sec of interconnect bandwidth, while PCIe is limited in comparison with 32GB/sec.
