With 37 TeraFLOP FP32 Computing Power!
I wonder what the hash power will be like, lol! Knowing how much the Chinese love to mine Bitcoins … this is probably all the are interested!
Taken from Videocardz … The development of the new GPGPU started back in 2018, but it wasn’t until January this year when the Chinese company Tianshu Zhixin announced that a new compute accelerator is in development. Just 3 months later, the company officially announced that it has entered mass production using TSMC’s 7nm process node.
The GPGPU features CoWoS packing technology (Chip-on-Wafer-on-Substrate). The chip is manufactured using TSMC’s 7nm FinFET technology, the company announced on Wednesday. It’s an advanced accelerator with over 24 billion transistors.
The manufacturer revealed some performance figures of the Big Island GPU, such as FP32, FP16/BF16, and INT32/16/8 figures, which allows a side-by-side comparison to existing high-performance chips from better-known suppliers of such solutions such as AMD or NVIDIA.
According to the new slides, Big Islands GPGPU would offer 37 TFLOPs of single-precision compute power (FP32). The chip will also offer up to 147 TFLOPs of FP16/BF16 half-precision calculations. Furthermore, it will also reach 317, 147, and 295 TOPS in INT32, INT16, and IN8 calculations per second respectively. The company did not provide any clock speeds or GPU configurations, which makes it impossible to tell how many cores does the chip has.
