Nvidia Unveils a Powerful New Server GPU and Much More

Nvidia's new A100 GPU delivers major performance gains relative to its prior-gen Tesla V100 GPU, and is also meant to handle a wider variety of workloads.

Nvidia (NVDA) - Get Report is launching its first new flagship server GPU in three years, and the company made sure it packs a punch.

On Thursday morning, Nvidia unveiled the A100, the first GPU to rely on its next-gen Ampere architecture. The A100, said by Nvidia to already be in full production, packs a massive 54 billion transistors. That figure easily eclipses the 21 billion transistors used by Nvidia’s prior flagship server GPU, the Tesla V100, which relies on the older Volta architecture.

The A100 is being shown off during a recorded keynote by CEO Jensen Huang that starts airing at 9 A.M. Eastern time. The keynote was originally meant to take place during Nvidia’s GTC conference, which was scheduled for March but cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
