The new version of GPU for datacenter, the undisputed top range for performance, boasts a terrifying data sheet. We have a GPU characterized by an area of ​​over 825 square millimeters, with even 6,912 CUDA core. The amount of memory is incredible, we are talking about 80GB of advanced HBM2e modules, memories so high that they are able to reach speeds equal to 2TB / s of theoretical bandwidth. Apparently there will also be a second version, much more contained, with a smaller amount of HBM2e memory, equal to 40GB, with a bandwidth of 1.6TB / s.
