At this year’s Supercomputing Conference (SC19), Nvidia announced a number of things, such as ARM server benchmarking. As a high-performance computing (HPC) show, the SC19 doesn’t seem to be the perfect place to announce a new GPU. Despite this,media have seen the new GPU from Nvidia, the Tesla V100s, at the booths of several manufacturers.

While some billboards say “Multiple V100 Units,” some companies say it’s a new product.
As a partner of Nvidia, these manufacturers are able to obtain samples and specifications prior to the show.
Curiously, Nvidia CEO Huang Renxun did not specifically mention it during the SC19 presentation.
Perhaps Nvidia wanted to surprise attendees by opting for a low-key display of the V100s GPU.
It has been pointed out that the V100s can provide faster storage speeds, which is clearly referring to the second generation of high bandwidth cache (HBM2) encapsulated.
The exact parameters of the new GPU, such as frequency and thermal design power consumption (TDP), have yet to be revealed by the co-customers.
