NVIDIA Tesla A100 GPU has 54 billion transistors

Posted on Thursday, May 14 2020 @ 11:14:34 CEST by

VideoCardz has more info about the Ampere-based system that got teased by NVIDIA's CEO. According to the site, this new 7nm server chip packs a massive 54 billion transistors! That's way over double as much as the Volta GV100's 21 billion.

NVIDIA claims the Ampere-based A100 has 20x more AI performance than Volta and 2.5x higher double-precision performance. It also supports FP64 numbers.
NVIDIA claims that the GPU will be 20x more powerful than Volta GPU in AI-training (single-precision operations) and AI interference (8-bit integer operations). In terms of high-performance computing (double precision operations) NVIDIA says that the GPU will be 2.5 faster.

“With this new precision, A100 offers 20 times more compute for single-precision AI, and because developers can continue to use the inputs as single-precision and get outputs back as single-precision, they do not need to do anything differently. They benefit from this acceleration automatically out of the box,”

Later today, NVIDIA is expected to showcase its DGX A100. This system will pack eight Tesla A100 GPUs to offer up to 5 petaflops of computing power. While the previous generation was primarily pitched for AI-operations, the DGX A100 can also handle scale-up operations (data analytics- and scale-out operations (inferencing). For at least some computing tasks, a DGX A100 rack can replace 25 CPU datacenter racks, at 1/10th the investment and 1/20th the power consumption.
