NVIDIA teases the "world's largest graphics card" ahead of GTC 2020 keynote
NVIDIA has teased the release of the "world's largest graphics card" ahead of the release of its pre-recorded GTC 2020 keynote. The keynote, which goes live on YouTube at 06:00 PDT (UTC-07:00) on May 14, is when CEO Jensen Huang is expected to unveil NVIDIA's Ampere architecture.
In the teaser, Huang literally takes a massive system out from an oven, remarking that it "has been cooking for a while". Possibly the DGX A100 revealed earlier this month by a trademark entry, the system features what Videocardz describes as "eight Tesla A100 computing processors".
NVIDIA has based the DGX A100 on the GA100, its first Ampere GPU. Expected to feature up to 8,192 CUDA cores, the DGX A100 will be a deep learning workstation. Based on previous rumours, it may be a few months yet before NVIDIA announces any consumer GPUs based on the Ampere architecture. Until then, feast your eyes on one of the most awkward product teasers that we have seen in a long time.
