NVIDIA's new Grace Superchip loses to Intel Xeon Sapphire Rapids in HPC benchmarks

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 7, 2024 5:55 PM CST

NVIDIA's new Grace Superchip has just been benchmarked, giving us a look at NVIDIA's first-ever in-house server CPU that's based on the Arm architecture.

NVIDIA's new Grace Superchip loses to Intel Xeon Sapphire Rapids in HPC benchmarks

The Barcelona Supercomputing Center and the State University of New York have benchmarked the NVIDIA Grace Superchip, which doesn't beat Intel's new Xeon "Sapphire Rapids" CPUs with 48 cores and 96 threads per processor. NVIDIA's new Grace Superchips will be a competitive data center and HPC processor, which comes from its efficiency.

A single Grace CPU packs 72 cores and 480GB of LPDDR5X memory, while the Grace Superchip features 2 x Grace CPUs combined on a single board that provides a huge 144 cores and an even bigger 960GB of LPDDR5X memory. Impressive stuff to see, and just to once again point out the fact that this is an Arm-based CPU that NVIDIA has built.

NVIDIA AI GPU dominance sees Goldman Sachs increase NVIDIA share price target by 28%

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 5, 2024 7:02 PM CST

NVIDIA has been the fuel of the AI race since its inception, garnering an estimated 90% of the AI GPU market, and now Goldman Sachs has increased its share price target by a whopping 28%.

NVIDIA AI GPU dominance sees Goldman Sachs increase NVIDIA share price target by 28%

NVIDIA will publish its earnings report later this month, and thanks to its absolute dominance in the AI business, the company could post a whopping report, says Goldman Sachs. NVIDIA has pushed out countless H100 Hopper AI GPUs, with beefed-up H200 AI GPUs coming soon, and next-gen B100 Blackwell AI GPUs are due in 2024, too.

Goldman Sachs says that not only is demand for AI GPUs and AI servers healthy, but the supply constraints that were hurting NVIDIA AI GPUs are now easing. The firm increased its share target for NVIDIA from $625 to a huge $800, representing a 28% increase, while also increasing NVIDIA's earnings per share estimates for the next few years.

AI scammer deepfaked CFO of company, scammed $25.6 million in a single meeting

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 5, 2024 6:33 PM CST

We know the advancements of AI have been swift and fast, but now we're hearing about an AI scammer using deepfake technology to defraud a business by $25.6 million.

AI scammer deepfaked CFO of company, scammed $25.6 million in a single meeting

In a report published by the South China Morning Post, a thief stole HK$200 million ($25.6 million USD) using deepfake technology to host a fake video conference call, where deepfake technology showed the chief financial officer (CFO) of the UK branch of the company.

The company's finance department received a phishing message that claimed to have been from the CFO in the UK, instructing staff to execute a secret transaction, but the employee wasn't convinced. AI was then used to host a conference call that had videos of the CFO and other staff to convince the staffer to transfer the funds.

SK hynix: next-gen HBM4 memory will enter mass production in 2026 for next-gen AI GPUs

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 4, 2024 8:28 PM CST

SK hynix has officially announced plans for its 5th Generation of High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) which is otherwise known as HBM3e, launching this year, while next-gen HBM4 memory is coming in 2026.

SK hynix: next-gen HBM4 memory will enter mass production in 2026 for next-gen AI GPUs

Kim Chun-hwan, vice president of SK hynix, announced the plans during his keynote speech at SEMICOM Korea 2024, which was hosted at the COEX in the Samseong neighborhood of Seoul, on January 31. VP Kim said: "With the advent of the AI computing era, generative AI is rapidly advancing" and that the "generative AI market is expected to grow at an annual rate of 35%".

We can expect SK hynix's new HBM4 memory to arrive with a 2048-bit memory interface, and a huge 1.5TB/s memory bandwidth per stack. The huge advances in AI GPUs from the likes of NVIDIA and AMD, and its next-gen AI GPUs of the future, will rely on ultra-fast next-gen memory like HBM4. SK hynix wants to have its next-gen HBM4 memory in 2026, but we could see it a bit earlier in late 2025.

Tesla will spend billions of dollars on NVIDIA AI GPUs this year, will also buy AMD AI GPUs

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 30, 2024 10:08 PM CST

Tesla's entire future is AI, so it makes sense that the Elon Musk-led company would be spending billions of dollars securing AI GPUs for its new Dojo AI supercomputer.

Tesla will spend billions of dollars on NVIDIA AI GPUs this year, will also buy AMD AI GPUs

NVIDIA already commands an estimated 90% of the AI GPU market, but Tesla has said that it will be not only using NVIDIA's various AI GPUs but also AMD AI GPUs but didn't specify which of AMD's AI GPUs it would be purchasing. Tesla boss Elon Musk did state that it is readying $500 million to spend on an equivalent of 10,000 x NVIDIA H100 AI GPU order from NVIDIA.

Elon Musk posted on X: "The governor is correct that this is a Dojo Supercomputer, but $500M, while obviously a large sum of money, is only equivalent to a 10K H100 system from NVIDIA. Tesla will spend more than that on NVIDIA hardware this year. The table stakes for being competitive in AI are at least several billion dollars per year at this point".

NVIDIA rumored to switch to Intel for advanced packaging for next-gen AI GPUs, away from TSMC

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 30, 2024 8:46 PM CST

NVIDIA can't make enough of its AI GPUs to meet current demand, let alone the non-stop demand for AI computing power... with the company reportedly working with Intel using its advanced packaging services.

NVIDIA rumored to switch to Intel for advanced packaging for next-gen AI GPUs, away from TSMC

The news is coming from UDN, which reports that TSMC's (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) and its CoWoS advanced packaging production capacity is "insufficient" which has left NVIDIA turning to Intel. Intel will use its advanced packaging production for NVIDIA, providing them with around 5000 pieces per month.

Intel's help here for NVIDIA will allow the AI GPU giant to pump out, even more, AI GPUs, which have been strained in supply because of various factors, mostly in the advanced packaging supply chain. Once Intel begins advanced packaging production for NVIDIA, it's expected that NVIDIA's total advanced packaging production capacity will increase by a significant 10%.

Creators of George Carlin AI special get sued by Carlin estate despite their admission

Jak Connor | Jan 30, 2024 12:33 AM CST

The world is quickly becoming infused with artificial intelligence (AI), and while you may correctly think artists such as video game developers or logo designers would be affected by the rise in popularity of the new generative AI tools, so are comedians or at least their estates.

Creators of George Carlin AI special get sued by Carlin estate despite their admission

George Carlin, a widely regarded hall-of-fame member of the comedy world, was resurrected in the form of a new comedy special that its creators said was generated by AI. The new comedy special gained attention from the Carlin estate, which resulted in a lawsuit being filed against the podcast outlet Dudsey and its hosts Will Sasso and Chad Kultgen, with the filing alleging the creators didn't have permission to use Carlin's likeness, nor have any license to use any of Carlin's copyrighted materials.

The special was originally posted on YouTube on January 9 and began with a voiceover that stated the special was created with an AI engine that listened to Carlin's entire library of comedy content. Additionally, the AI voiceover stated, "did my best to imitate his voice, cadence and attitude as well as the subject matter I think would have interested him today".
