Very interesting news is coming to us from Japan: A few days after we have received new information about the core graphics and AMD graphics cards, we are also receiving a much more formal and significant endorsement from rival NVIDIA - which verifies that Generation of future Pascal cores Memory will be used in the second generation of innovative HBM technology, with maximum 16GB support and an effective bandwidth approaching terabytes per second (!), More than 2 than what we were offered God- The most advanced.


It is said that 'professional' cards from the Quadro families and especially the Tesla will be able to reach up to 32GB of , And a bandwidth of almost 2 terabytes per second

B- Have also confirmed that the Pascal generation is indeed produced using the FinFET + process on the TSMC 16 nanometer of the old partner, which eliminates many early rumors that, Looking for a new partner for production, adding that the stated meta-goal for the new generation is to achieve 2 performance efficiency than we do today in the next generation. 2.0.

Also NVIDIA And AMD Are designed to multiply the performance of each Watt of power invested, making it possible to create highly cost-effective video cards on the one hand And most powerful On the other hand - and we hope that this is a goal that is indeed feasible for implementation, and not one that will be achieved "technically" with a calculation that comes from support for FP16's "half-accuracy" processing (something that Has done in the past to distract Pascal Higher than 10 from Maxwell). We'll keep our fingers crossed.

Another key feature of the Pascal generation will be the support of the company's new NVLink connection, which will replace the PCI Express interface in a faster bi-directional interface (up to 80 GB per second) in multi- . At the moment, it seems that the initial application will be in high-end professional systems And not in the home market, but we certainly believe that such an application is on the way, with the potential to become arrays Advanced and much more effective.

That little - quick will be
It's the small - fast will be

We know that the production of Pascal cores Has already begunAnd that's why the estimates are currently talking about the first models that can reach us before the second half of next year - will Computex 2016 in June serve as the stage for the big launch? We'll see.
