Raja Koduri likes to show off his work in GPU engineering, way back from his days at AMD. His latest bragging rights is what he calls the "BFP" (big fabulous package), a large GPU package that's larger than even an AMD SP3 package, roughly 75 mm x 80 mm in size, looking at its "family" photo where a AA battery is used for scale. This could very well be the largest version of Xe "Ponte Vecchio." Koduri's caption reads "And..they let me hold peta ops in my palm (almost)," likely referring to the chip's tensor ops performance. He also posted pictures of Xe's various test platforms, from Intel's labs in Folsom, California.
