    But is it a case of "it's good enough" or "it's better than anything else we have" or "it's good enough trrade off with current hardware"?

    Turing added some additional precision modes (INT8, INT4) for inferencing, and experimental 4-bit and 1-bit precision modes for low-precision math research.

    New Nvidia Tesla V100S for PCIe Official Specs:

    https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/data-center/tesla-v100/#specs

    Performance is 16-17% faster than the Original Tesla V100 for PCIe.

    Memory bandwidth is up a whopping 26% (1134 GB/s vs 900 GB/s) which is probably the main reason for the 17% overall gain.

    Interesting the Tesla V100S PCI-e version has higher performance/specs than the original Tesla V100 NVLink version.

    It's probably using the full die of GV100, ie the full 5376 cores.

    The data sheet shows that it still has 5120 SPs.
