    Exactly. When Nvidia officially cuts prices, early adopters will probably become infuriated, when the prices drop due to, say better supply, Nvidia could shed some of the blame. *cough*

    So it seems NVIDIA will continue to sell Pascal cards along Turing till the holiday season, which means the overstock of Pascal is real.

    One doesn’t need to be a consequence of the other?

    With Turing being as large as it is, it’s not at all impossible that they will continue to produce Pascal.

    Rambus Renews Patent License With NVIDIA
    https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20181005005039/en/Rambus-Renews-Patent-License-NVIDIA

    Likely similar to the 2010 agreement they had regarding memory/memory controllers.

    No mention of the GPU architecture. Is it safe to assume post-Volta or post-Turing?

    It links to Tesla page which the Tesla is currently a Volta-based GPU. I doubt it would be Turing since that architecture is focused more on rendering acceleration so unless they're planning on releasing a new architecture in 2019/20 for Tesla, I assume it's going to be Volta-based.

    There could be some Turing GPU's in the mix from the "data analytics" aspect, but not sure. There was mention of RAPIDS which uses Turing gpu's for end to end data analytics acceleration.
    Edit: RAPIDS (gpu accelerated platform) will work with any Pascal GPU and higher.

    I guess that makes sense for an inferencing specific model since Turing scales with many different size GPUs depending on the purpose and Volta doesn't. But inferencing has very different requirements than scientific supercomputers where Volta makes a lot more sense.

    post-Volta (Ampere) as they mention scientific computing, which often needs DP.

    Images generated by SDR can be used to train a neural network for perception tasks such as object detection on real images.

    Yesterdays annual supercomputing conference stream from nvidia. Makes it pretty clear what is current offering from nvidia to datacenters from volta to turing.

    Only 2 hours to watch, small price to pay for 'clarity` ;)

    I guess the short version of video is hgx2 which is 16 volta machine for training/heavy lifting where each gpu can talk directly to any other gpu via nvlink and nv switch https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/data-center/hgx/

    Turing t4 machine for inference. By the looks of it each board looked to have 2gpus and boards are hot swappable. Many boards per machine where each t4 is round 70W.

    Also google has that t4 thingy already integrated in their cloud.
