Nvidia talks up Pascal

nvidiaNvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has been telling the Nvidia Computex 2016 press conference about his latest Pascal-based GPUs.

He claimed they were being broadly adopted in applications including data centers, car-use electronics and deep-learning platforms.

He said Pascal GPUs will continue to use TSMC 16nm FinFET manufacturing process to provide enhanced performance than previous-generation products.

He said next-generation servers built by Nvidia’s Tesla P100 GPUs can compete against servers that are equipped with several hundreds of CPUs. Nvidia also showcased a server system manufactured by Quanta Computer.

He also showed the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080 reference design, displayed at the conference, the board is manufactured by Foxconn.

Nvidia has been pushing its Pascal GPUs into industry sectors, including virtual reality, car-use electronics and deep-learning. As for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, Huang noted that Nvidia has no interest in smartphones.
