    That article doesn't seem that clear, the 8x number for TPU v3 seems to be for pods which contain 4x more TPUs than v2. That coupled with the increased power consumption of the v3...

    As @entity279 mentioned too much is unknown at this time and would welcome benchmarks, cost and info regarding efficiency when they come out. At this point I'd venture to guess is it might be less attractive due to Google's locked-in approach offering users no flexibility outside the following:

    What is then the difference of Nvidia's lock in approach ? TensorRT, ...

    There is none.
    Edit: To clarify I don't think users are compelled to use TensorRT if they don't want to. There is no additional cost and it adds performance.

    Not sure I follow; Nvidia offer support for multiple frameworks, albeit this is CUDA and so lock-in that way (but does give scientists/devs greater options than what is on Google TPU cloud although their TensorFlow framework must be one of the biggest used now).

    Yes, currently it's still open, let's hope it stays this way, and there comes no GPU/DLA more specialized in inferencing working only with TensorRT

    They add their own speculation regarding GPU components that may be included (tensor cores), and mention a later update from Expreview that conflicts Tom's release speculation.

    From TPU's source: „A single stack of GDDR6 memory has a capacity of 8 Gb so we could see one or two of these in the upcoming Nvidia Volta GTX 1180.“
    Wow, just wow! ;)

    Since there's nothing productive to talk about at the moment.

    NVidia Volta GTX 1180. Not GeForce, Volta! :D

    Also, it's only going to come with 1 or 2 GB or memory? ;) "...we could see one or two of these..."

    If anyone take anything I just said seriously, imma smack you.

    Regards,

    Latest TitanV review comes from ComputerBase, with latest drivers, and an i9-7890X CPU, not the best CPU for gaming, but what the heck.

    Avg performance over 25 titles @4K is 30% above 1080TI FE, with notable oddities such as Prey and Kingdom Come (CryEngine games) exhibiting 40% uplift over 1080Ti. Wolfenstien 2 exhibited almost no uplift whatsoever though.
