Ooooh, it looks like NVIDIA is slowly outing its next-generation GPU lineup... where a slide from its recent NVIDIA Investor Presentation is bringing some much-needed attention to next-gen data center and AI GPUs. Check it out:

NVIDIA's new roadmap extends for a few years... covering the A100 "Ampere" GPU from 2023, the new H100 "Hopper" GPU that was unleashed this year, its upcoming H200 "Hopper" GPU in 2024, and then the "B100" Blackwell GPU that is penciled in for 2024. Not only that but we're being teased by "X100" for some time in 2025, too. Juicy.

We are to expect new data center GPU architectures each and every year, where the next one to expect after the just-released H100 Hopper GPU architecture is the upcoming H200 Hopper GPU architecture in 2024, after that we'll get the B100 Blackwell GPU architecture which will arrive for both data center and AI systems, as well as Blackwell-powered GeForce RTX 50 series desktop graphics cards... that's what I want to see.

  • A = Ampere
  • H = Hopper
  • B = Blackwell
  • X = unknown for now

What has interested me more than the next-gen Blackwell GPU series from NVIDIA's new data center GPU roadmap is the reference to "X" which could be a scientist's last name -- just like the Ada Lovelace, Hopper, Blackwell, and more -- or simply, it could be a placeholder for something totally different. Whatever it is, NVIDIA has already teased us with "X100" and its release in 2025, at least for now.

We should expect NVIDIA to tease -- or even formally announce -- its next-gen B100 "Blackwell" GPU architecture at GTC 2024, NVIDIA's own GPU Technology Conference, set for March 18, 2024. I wouldn't be expecting any Blackwell-powered GeForce RTX 50 series graphics cards until at least the end of 2024, more likely we'll see them sometime in 2025.

As for the performance, well... that's anyone's guess right now. I'd like to see a powerhouse next-gen GeForce RTX 5090 that is twice as fast as the current beast flagship GeForce RTX 4090. We should see NVIDIA using next-generation GDDR7 memory on its GeForce RTX 50 series cards, that will blast through high-resolution gaming at ridiculous frame rates... and I seriously, seriously cannot wait.
