Upcoming graphics cards for Leela

According to this site

http://www.hexus.net/tech/news/graphics ... r-roundup/

new cards from Nvidia are on their way. The speed difference is mentioned with existing cards. Unless my maths is off I calculate the following speedups based on an old 1060 = 1

TITAN RTS = 3.40
TITAN V = 2.96
2080 = 2.46
1080Ti = 2.28
2070 = 1.95
1080 = 1.64
1070 = 1.37
2060 = 1.27
1060 = 1

Obviously the measurements they used may not apply neatly to Leela, but it gives an idea. Looks to me Nvidia are starting to slow down a bit at the top end.

Here's some better info, based on what's now released and in terms of TFLOPS, rather than FPS or something silly like that.

Titan RTX (??)
Quadro RTX 6000 - 15.9
Titan V - 14.9 (29.8 half P)
2080 Ti - 13.4
Quadro P6000 - 11.7
1080 Ti - 11.3
Quadro RTX 5000 - 10.6
2080 - 10.1
Quadro P5000 - 9.5
1080 - 8.9
2070 - 7.5
1060 - 4.4

I just bought a 1080 Ti because you can get them under $700 now.

Well, for AI (Leela ). New cards are advertised as 10x faster ?? :shock:

If Werewolf's numbers are accurate, then 2080 Ti - 13.4 over 1080 Ti - 11.3: gives:
13.4 / 11.3 = 1.18 times faster. 18%.
Cost of 2080 ti is $1199.00

1199.00 / 650 = 1.84 or 84% more.

I get a lot better mips per dollar.
I also bought 4 smaller cards recently (1060? I forget).
I am going to put those in one of my Unix boxes.

I think this is incorrect. While we don't have actual test benchmarks yet, the RTX lineup shares wiith the Titan V one important advantage over the GTX 10x0 cards: It can utilize fp16 inference fully, which gives a factor of 2 to speed in addition to the TFLOPS you posted. Currently, a Titan V can do around triple the Leela NPS that a 1080Ti can do, and the 2080Ti should be very close to that.

Why this BS-ing when it is also known that neither 2070, nor 2080, nor 2080Ti will have real FP16, i.e. all 3 will have it as 10xx cards at 1:64 rate?
Only Quadro's and Titan RTX will have actual FP16.

Someone who actually works for Nvidia driver development has stated the exact opposite of this on Leela Discord: "Rtx 2080ti is almost same as titan v for lc0" (by Ankan, https://chessprogramming.wikispaces.com/Ankan+Banerjee). So if you want to call BS on me, you'd better back that up with actual data.

Sorry that I believe more the most reputable graphics and hardware in general test and review website than hearsay of some quasi insider especially when it defies common sense.

This looks like detail article. (in short, 2080Ti will perform 2 x AI works than 1080Ti)
