Nvidia Announces PCI-Express version of Tesla V100 accelerator

Published by


Nvidia announced a PCI Expres version 'card' of its the Tesla V100 accelerator, to be releases later this year. The unit has 16GB HBM2 memory and the Volta GPU has been fitted with 5120 sharder processors.  .

The PCI-E card of the Tesla V100 is intended to be a server part for stuff like deep-learning, research and analysis. The card is clocked slightly slower compared to the original module model and comes with a TDP of 250 watts. Nvidia claims these cards will be releases 'later this year'. 

Specifications of the PCIe form factor include:

  • 7 teraflops double-precision performance, 14 teraflops single-precision performance and 112 teraflops half-precision performance with NVIDIA GPU BOOST™ technology
  • 16GB of CoWoS HBM2 stacked memory, delivering 900GB/sec of memory bandwidth
  • Support for PCIe Gen 3 interconnect (up to 32GB/sec bi-directional bandwidth)
  • 250 watts of power

One of the biggest innovations of the V100 compared to the P100 are the all new Tensor Cores, the GV100 GPU has 640 them: eight per sm. Nvidia claims huge performance gains for applications that can make use of it. At regular fp32- and fp64 calculations the GV100 is about 1.5 times as fast as the GP100. NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU accelerators for PCIe-based systems are expected to be available later this year from NVIDIA reseller partner and manufacturers, including Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).
