nVidia Turing White Paper

Various tech news sites have also begun to report on some aspects of this newly released information.

Interesting tidbits from the release are:

  • We get 96kb Shared/L1 per multiprocessor (shared/L1 split configurable as 32/64 or 64/32)
  • FP and integer instructions can be executed in parallel in Turing (supposedly this was not possible in Pascal - which confirms my findings that I was unable to get DP4A/DP2A instructions dual issued with floating point operations. Back then I simply did not know it was impossible).
  • Turing's Tensor cores now support INT8 and INT4 maths at even higher throughputs.
  • No word about user programmability of the RT cores.
  • OMG - that beautiful die shot in the whitepaper. Enhance! Enhance!

Incredible…

It certainly packs a lot of punch for the price. Now it can not only run Cryis, but simulate a rat’s brain or something…
