Nasljednik NVIDIA 'Ampere' navodno kodnog naziva 'Spremnik'



NVIDIA has reportedly codenamed a future GPU architecture 'Hopper,' in honor of Grace Hopper, an eminent computer scientist who invented one of the first linkers, and programmed the Harvard Mark I computer that aided the American war efforts in World War II. This came to light as Twitter user '@kopite7kimi,' who's had a fairly high hit-rate with NVIDIA info tweeted not just the codename, but also a key NVIDIA product design change. The tweets were later deleted, but not before 3DCenter.org reported on them. To begin with, 'Hopper' is reportedly succeeding the upcoming 'Ampere' architecture slated for the first half of 2020.

Priča se da je 'Hopper' predstavio MCM (multi-chip modul) GPU pakete, koji su paketi s više GPU-ova. Trenutno su GPU MCM-ovi paketi s jednim GPU umreženim okruženim memorijskim matricama ili snopovima. Ova kombinacija GPU matrica mogla bi činiti 'divne jezgre', barem u višem kraju spektra performansi. NVIDIA zadržava MCM-ove samo za najskuplju Tesla obitelj računskih akceleratora ili Quadro profesionalne grafičke kartice i rijetko nudi proizvode GeForce-segmenta klijenta.
