The new Turing GPU is the largest leap in GPU technology from NVIDIA since the CUDA GPU was unveiled back in 2006, with a huge 18.6 billion transistors on a 12nm process. There's also a Tensor Core inside with 125 TFLOPs of FP16 performance, and an RT Core with 10 Giga Rays/sec of performance. The Turing GPU in all of its glory uses 754mm2, compared to 471mm2 of Pascal (which had 11.8 billion transistors).
