NVIDIA Kepler to get a GPGPU variant?

Posted on Tuesday, March 27 2012 @ 21:46:14 CEST by

David Kanter of Real World Technologies believes NVIDIA will likely reveal a follow-up to its Kepler platform that better addresses the needs of GPGPU applications:
David Kanter of Real World Technologies said the newly launched Kepler platform was specialized for high-end graphics, whereas more general purpose workloads would necessitate a differentiated version of the chip in order for Nvidia to remain competitive in the HPC space.

“It will be a derivative of Kepler, to re-use as much of the engineering effort as possible, but with several significant changes,” he said, hinting that a Kepler cousin could be announced as soon as May.

When it comes to different workload requirements, Kanter said it was clear that a graphics centric chip would not require much in the way of cross-system communication, whereas scientific computing did need it for algorithms to be efficient.
