Nvidia Pascal: The Secret of Hidden Directory

Nvidia Invites You to the Order of 10

In just a few days, Nvidia will unveil their mainstream products based on the Pascal architecture. Under the codename GP104 and GP106, Nvidia is preparing the arrival of approximately five different products. GP104 is the more high-end part of the two (i.e. the first derivative of GP100, the big Pascal chip from Tesla P100), scheduled to power GeForce GTX 1060 Ti (6GB GDDR5), 1070 (8GB GDDR5) and 1080 (8GB GDDR5X). GP106 silicon will power the GeForce GTX 1050 (2GB GDDR5) and 1060 (4GB GDDR5). Just like any GeForce GTX launch, Nvidia’s marketing team loves a good riddle. Good portion of the surprise was out last week, when

16nm MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Leak Ahead of Computex Taipei 2016

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING 8G

Given that we won’t be seeing any high end GPU hardware until the first quarter 2017 (HBM2-powered AMD Vega 10, Nvidia Pascal GP100), the focus for 2016 will be on the mainstream cards. The shift from 28nm to 16nm (Nvidia) and 14nm (AMD) forced the companies to adopt a conservative approach and focus on entry-level and mainstream silicon, rather than the “highest of all ends”. While Nvidia did launch its 15 billion transistor silicon named GP100 i.e. Tesla P100 at the Nvidia GPU Technology Conference, Jen-Hsun Huang did state that real volume shipments will only start in the first quarter of 2017, roughly the same time

AMD Polaris 10 GPU Specifications Revealed?

AMD Polaris 10 i.e. 67DF:C4

A technology rumor website recently published a story detailing the upcoming AMD Polaris 10 GPU, allegedly named “67DF:C4”. As it turns out, a bird sent us screenshots showing the details of the card. While we cannot go into more details in order to protect the source, we can confirm that AMD Polaris 10 engineering samples are varying in clock between 800 and 1050 MHz, depending on the partner. Our original Polaris 10 story is here. What we know so far is that Polaris 10 used to be known as Ellesmere, Baffin is Polaris 11 and Greenland is Vega 10. Apparently, the numbers 10, 11, 12 will not co-relate

As we are approaching Computex and the majority of press and media analysts are in the plane en route Taipei, companies such as Intel, Nvidia and AMD are polishing their press releases for the first day of the show. One such product is GeForce GTX 980 Ti, a product refresh which does not have a lot to do with ‘refresh’. While the original GTX 980 was based of GM204 GPU, featuring 2048 CUDA cores attached to 4 or 8GB of GDDR5 memory. As you might have guessed, the chip was using 256-bit memory bus. When you combine GPU clock of 1.12 GHz and GDDR5 clock
