NVIDIA has announced availability of their latest data center accelerator, the Tesla P100, which is the world's first HBM2-powered add-in-card. this means that NVIDIA effectively beat AMD in time to market with HBM2 technology, which AMD pioneered (in its HBM form) with the Fury line of graphics cards.
NVIDIA naturally touts this as the world's most advanced data center accelerator, for workloads such as "Artificial intelligence for self-driving cars. Predicting our climate's future. A new drug to treat cancer." NVIDIA's green graphics show an almost 50x increase in computing power from 8x Tesla P100 accelerators when compared to a dual CPU server based on Intel's Xeon E5-2698 V3 (which isn't really all that surprising.) NVIDIA further brings in the PR talk with examples on how a single GPU-accelerated node powered by four Tesla P100s - interconnected with PCIe - can replace up to 32 commodity CPU nodes for a variety of applications - saving up to 70% in overall data center costs.Source: NVIDIA
