NVIDIA has recently made a big announcement. They will be releasing the next generation of GPU designed to run neural networks. The new P40 GPU will come clustered with the latest in what the company has to offer. NVIDA has always been on the cutting edge of the market, and with their latest confirmation in the release of the P40, their innovation remains unaltered. Below is a sample from on eof their latest articles.
Modern AI services such as voice-activated assistance, email spam filters, and movie and product recommendation engines are rapidly growing in complexity, requiring up to 10x more compute compared to neural networks from a year ago. Current CPU-based technology isn’t capable of delivering real-time responsiveness required for modern AI services, leading to a poor user experience.
The Tesla P4 and P40 are specifically designed for inferencing, which uses trained deep neural networks to recognize speech, images or text in response to queries from users and devices. Based on the Pascal architecture, these GPUs feature specialized inference instructions based on 8-bit (INT8) operations, delivering 45x faster response than CPUs1 and a 4x improvement over GPU solutions launched less than a year ago.
