Nvidia is set to unveil the first details of the Ampere architecture that will underpin the new GeForce graphics cards in two weeks. Recall recent data indicate that the corresponding GPU will be carried out on a 7 nm process. The graphics cards themselves are expected to be released sometime in the middle of summer, and will hit the market in late summer or fall. Despite the fact that all these events are already very close, there are not many clear origins or rumors about Ampere.
It is even more interesting today to look not at the regular hearing, but at completely official data. The Justia database has a registered Nvidia trademark DGX A100, which clearly belongs to the Ampere generation.
DGX is a special kind of specialized Nvidia installation that relies on the power of GPUs. The current generation – DGX–2 – is based on Tesla V100 adapters. Judging by the name, the DGX A100 model will be based on Tesla accelerators with the GPU GA100 – a top–end GPU that is unlikely to reach consumer devices.
About the DGX A100 configurations, which will probably just change the DGX–2, you can only guess, but the latter has 16 Tesla V100 3D cards at once.
