GTC 2017 - NVIDIA is preparing to unleash its next-gen Volta GPU architecture at the GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, CA - with Jensen Huang, CEO and founder of NVIDIA saying that the company is building inventory for a new product announcement during his keynote in the morning.


At GTC 2016 the company unveiled its Pascal-based Tesla P100 professional graphics card powered by HBM2 technology, so I'm expecting a Volta GPU architecture announcement alongside the unveiling of the Tesla V100. I'm sure we'll see even more HBM2 on the purported Tesla V100 (The 'P' in Tesla P100 stands for Pascal, so V100 would be Volta, right?) and we could even see a GDDR6-based variant, but I think that'll be the GeForce GTX 20 series announcement for later this year.

Until then, what do you think we'll see unveiled at GTC 2017? Volta in professional form? A new TITAN Xv graphics card on the new Volta GPU architecture, or something completely different?
