Tianshu Zhixin's new Big Island GPU is made on TSMC's 7nm process, packs over 24 billion transistors, and 37 TFLOPs of single-precision compute power. The new compute accelerator is using the latest PCIe 4.0 standard, packs 32GB of super-fast HBM2 memory (unknown memory bandwidth at the moment) and uses 300W of power.

The new Big Island GPU will be offered by Tianshu Zhixin in both the normal dual-slot PCIe 4.0 x16 standard with passive cooling, as well as the normal mezzanine board form factor. The company hasn't shared the double-precision compute performance, but once we have those numbers we'll let you know how Tianshu Zhixin's new GPGPU performs in FP32.

The new Tianshu Zhixin Big Island GPU will be going up against the AMD Instinct MI100 and NVIDIA A100 accelerators, but we need to know more about Big Island and how well it stands up against AMD and NVIDIA's offerings first.
