Time for next gen
nVidia speculation then
mod could add tags, I forgot
My speculation is it will be late.
Damn, you're fast -- I was about to fire up that thread for "Kepler".
I guess it's too early for "Maxwell".
Fast? I even went via photoshop in between
(and noticed afterwards that I had accidently zoomed out the video tab in ie9 so it's smaller than it should)
So, what will be name - "GK200"?
I'm happy to learn that Fermi was released in 2009, and that Tesla was released in 2007. Kind of makes me think about how reliable that "2011" will turn out to be for Kepler…
Nvidia signs up with Global Foundries
Maybe this has something to do with "2011"....
Well, considering the 2,5x increase in efficiency , it should be a 28nm chip. So well past mid-2011.
And Maxwell should be a 20nm chip.
Edit: in that slide Cypress would be just between Kepler and Fermi, at 2.8 DP Gigaflops per Watt
Focus is apparently on performance/watt with Kepler aimed to be 3-4 times more efficient..
I could be wrong but the graph seems to show super linear growth in DP flops/W. I guess 2013 is when last call for ff hw goes out.
Tesla was announced in 2007...
And released in 2008, just as Fermi was announced in 2009, but released in 2010. So are we looking at a 2011 "announcement" for Kepler and 2012 release?
And over-powered, and hot, and...
The growth is extremely similar to what AMD has had so far in "SP flops/w"
This roadmap isn't correct. It was more like this:
Looking forward to place Cayman in there
Is this a roadmap for power point slides or actual working boards with non-rebranded chips inside them?
And the hardware of their first Tesla generation was ready in November 2006 or April 2007.
...8 times faster with Tessellation.
Maybe Maxwell will power Playstation 4.
"Kepler also incorporated religious arguments and reasoning into his work, motivated by the religious conviction that God had created the world according to an intelligible plan that is accessible through the natural light of reason." and "As he indicated in the title, Kepler thought he had revealed God’s geometrical plan for the universe."
Anyone else hearing "Big dies make good GPUs?"
"Kepler claimed to have had an epiphany on July 19, 1595, while teaching in Graz, demonstrating the periodic conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in the zodiac; he realized that regular polygons bound one inscribed and one circumscribed circle at definite ratios, which, he reasoned, might be the geometrical basis of the universe. After failing to find a unique arrangement of polygons that fit known astronomical observations (even with extra planets added to the system), Kepler began experimenting with 3-dimensional polyhedra."
Even more geometry? A Polymorph engine for each ALU perhaps? =)
I would say that a special version of Kepler will power PlayStation 4.
