NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang has been Cooking the World's Largest GPU - Is this Ampere?

NVIDIA is rumored to introduce their next-generation Ampere architecture very soon, at its GTC event happening on May 14th. We're expecting to see an announcement for the successor to the company's DGX lineup of pre-built compute systems—using the upcoming Ampere architecture of course. At the heart of these machines, will be a new GA100 GPU, that's rumored to be very fast. A while ago, we've seen NVIDIA register a trademark for "DGX A100", which seems to be a credible name for these systems featuring the new Tesla A100 graphics cards.

Today, NVIDIA's CEO was spotted in an unlisted video that's published on the official NVIDIA YouTube channel. It shows him pulling out of the oven what he calls "world's largest GPU", that he has been cooking all the time. Featuring eight Tesla A100 GPUs, this DGX A100 system appears to be based on a similar platform design as previous DGX systems, where the GPU is a socketed SXM2 design. This looks like a viable upgrade path for owners of previous DGX systems—just swap out the GPUs and enjoy higher performance. It's been a while since we have seen Mr. Huang appear with his leather jacket, and in the video, he isn't wearing one, is this the real Jensen? Jokes aside, you can check out the video below, if it is not taken down soon.

Update May 12th, 5 pm UTC: NVIDIA has listed the video and it is not unlisted anymore.

Pretty much I have done it often with their G92 GPU's... Maybe Toothless does it still...

It looks like more like a bad omen to me...

At least he could have called Aunt Lisa for some tea party too...

Do you even bake ?
Those are just silicon spatulas. Useful for cake glazing and general cooking with non-stick hardware. I also have a bunch of those and there is nothing special about them.

Actually none of it. There's no name for it, just a rather distant relative.

There's an Korean interview that kinda mentions it is even more complicated. But we can still make fun of it.
NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Hwang and Lisa Su. Taiwanese media reports that the two were distant relatives also reported, but she dismissed it as "not really."

Hype machine in full effect... Nvidia pushing out press faster than Intel right now. And that's quite an achievement as of late.

"Sources confirmed this to be the flagship gaming GPU of 2020. However, experts predict a shortage due to each card being hand baked in Huang's house."

Well, get "amped" for a new Tesla flagship I guess, bet that wasn't what most of you expected :). To be fair their HPC stuff has been more interesting than anything they've released in the consumer space for years.

Nothing lately has besides the rumour mill, everything pointing to Ampere is suggesting the data center card's are first out, gaming card's should follow but Nvidia themselves are tight lipped.

meanwhile on amd

Someone at AMD's PR team few years ago "Hey, let's build an angry mob on reddit and use it against our competition", flash forward to May 2020 and that mob is now knocking on AMD's doors with pitchforks and torches in their hands.
