Nvidia Announce its Next-Generation “Pascal” GPU

Today at Nvidia’s GPU Technology Conference, they have unveiled their latest next-generation GPU; Pascal. The announcement gives a very brief amount of information on what’s on offer, but we can see that some of the new Nvidia technologies open up the features within.

These include NVLINK offering 5 to 12X PCIe 3.0, 3D Memory which helps to increase bandwidth and with the module itself being 1/3 of the size of a PCIe card.

We are at GTC all week, so be sure to keep checking our coverage while we find out what Nvidia have to offer in the market.
