Re: GPU rumors 2020

I meant the host-device latencies also known as kernel launch overhead, can vary between 5ms and 100ms on different systems for null-kernels, this is primary not caused by the PCIe connection, but (speculation) by the little embedded CPU controller in all GPUs that launches the kernels, I admit the...

Re: GPU rumors 2020

Yea, I guess Intel and AMD will use something new in their Exa-Flops systems, and Nvidia will coninue its partnership with IBM, not sure when and if this will drop to consumer products. I agree, real memory coherence will offer new kind of gpgpu, and wish to add that significant lower host-device l...

GPU rumors 2020

Nvidia plans to release its next architecture named Ampere in 2020 based on Samsungs and TSMCs 7nm process, current Turing architecture is based on TSMCs 12nm. Intel plans to release the Xe series discrete GPUs based on their own 10 nm process (comparable to TSMC 7nm?) in 2020. AMD plans to enter th...

Re: Fritz 17

My understanding is that to be able to utilise cuddn-fp 16 you need to have an RTX 20 Series Card, like 2060, 2070, 2080 Super and of course the 2080 Ti Card. He has an old GTX 1660, which will have only have cudnn as backend option,not cuddn-fp-16, unless of course he has the new GTX1660 Super,whi...

Re: Fritz 17

Okay, here's another one . Same argument. I don't really understand what you are saying. You may notice by examination that each page in the preview says, "Copyrighted material". Individual numbers are not copyrightable for obvious reasons. But a book of numbers is copyrightable. Now, mathematics i...

Re: Fritz 17

I don't really understand what you are saying. You may notice by examination that each page in the preview says, "Copyrighted material". So if Fat Fritz's weights were printed in a book and it said "Copyrighted material" then it wouldn't be fine to distribute them? The claim is that if distributing...
