NVIDIA Corporation May Launch First Volta Processors in May of 2017

"If I had to guess, I suspect that NVIDIA will announce a GPU known as GV100 at GTC 2017, a high-end GPU targeted squarely at the data center market. This would give GP100 about a year as NVIDIA's flagship data center-oriented graphics processor before it's replaced; yearlong product cycles are quite common in this industry."

"If GV100 is announced in May, then based on what we saw with when we saw NVIDIA announce the gaming-oriented Pascal chips (GP104 and GP106), it wouldn't surprise me to see the first gaming-oriented Volta chip, likely known as GV104, hit the market in June or July of 2017. The mid-range Volta part, likely to be known as GV106, as well as the highest-end gaming part, which should be called GV102, could come out by the fall of 2017."

    I don't know - Maxwell first came out Feb 2014, and we saw the first Pascal chips hit market (although not really available in quantity) in late May/June of 2016. That's just over 2 years for the architecture. Next year for Volta would be very early - The two batches of Fermi  between the 400 to 500 series barely hit that timetable - that took 9 months. Fermi to Keplar was about 2 years. Keplar to Maxwell was about 2 years.

    What I expect inside of a year is the faster "Ti" edition, or Titan edition. I don't know where he gets that year long product cycles are the norm. This isn't a tech article, this is an investor article.

    But would be interesting if it's true - basically it would be nVidia admitting (without saying as much) that they aren't competitive with their Computer architecture.

    If Volta arrives in May 2017, it's on 16 nm.  It's not clear that Nvidia would be able to make it any better than Pascal unless Pascal is really broken somehow.

    The last Nvidia GPU with a "2" as the least significant digit was probably G92b, also known as the GeForce 9800 GTX+.

    They "may" launch it...or not.   So in other words, no news.

    I think the best programmers are those that don't have a life outside of computers. Technology is so overwhelming. Alvin Toffler wrote a book about it called, Future Shock. It was a great read and I recommend it.

    I love that book!
