Nvidia Introduces Worlds First High-Speed GPU Interconnect

4960X
 Share

NVIDIA today announced that it plans to integrate a high-speed interconnect, called NVIDIA NVLink, into its future GPUs, enabling GPUs and CPUs to share data five to 12 times faster than they can today. This will eliminate a longstanding bottleneck and help pave the way for a new generation of exascale supercomputers that are 50-100 times faster than today's most powerful systems.

Show, my laptop could run bf4 on high with this?

 

edit: I thought something else...  wish I could erase this

The time you enjoy wasting, is not wasted time.

Meh it will again be nvidia exclusive, meaning if skylake and whatever-lake support it, either amd has to adopt this, or we will see different boards for amd and nv gpu users :c

Definitely not the "first" AMD beat them to the curve with the XDMA engine in Hawaii.

This is CPU - gpu connect like pcie is, not gpu - gpu like ribbons and xdma are ;)

The XDMA engine uses PCIe -__-

you still dont get it. ;) this replaces pcie. This is to pcie like pcie was to pci and agp.

Noooo, this uses PCIE as well.

Nvidia is basically doing exactly what AMD did, they even reference the use of a DMA engine.

Oh yeah, reread it now. I. Misunderstood this since they were talking about more bandwith than currently used and the connector being smalled that pcie

AMD's XDMA is GPU to GPU for multi GPU systems. This Nvidia gig is GPU - CPU connections. It seems to be more focused towards commercial applications in supercomputers than in consumer computers (at least the only references I saw were for commercial use).

 

http://community.amd.com/community/amd-blogs/amd-gaming/blog/2014/01/03/modernizing-multi-gpu-gaming-with-xdma

 

I don't even think AMD mentions the GPU-CPU connection once in that.

 

 

Edit: Nevermind, I'm confused lol / reading wrong/ I don't know

 

The text of the article sounds like it replaces PCI-E but the images don't

This technology will be available in 2016 with Pascal which comes after Maxwell. We have a long way to go.

Technology is never far away bro :-)

Maybe they renamed it. On older road map slides they called the stacked dram architecture "Volta", and Pascal has stacked dram, so maybe "Volta" was just a codename of sorts and Pascal is the actual name? Sort of like how "Durango" was to the Xbox One.

I believe they changed it because Pascal sounds much sexier than Volta :D
