NVIDIA AD102 GPU will be laced with 75 billion transistors. Yes, you have heard this right, as according to leaker Kopite7kimi, the new flagship GPU called AD102 will have over 2.6 times the transistors than GA102. With this many transistors, the AD102 GPU will have only 5B fewer than Hopper H100 GPU, NVIDIA’s flagship data-center processor, which is also based on the similar TSMC N4 node.
It is still unknown what the size of the NVIDIA AD102 GPU is, although a direct comparison with Hopper and Ada is a distant possibility. Both processors feature a large L2 cache (50MB for Hopper and up to 96 MB for Ada). That’s around two times as large as the AD102 GPU explains where those transistors were used.
Although Kopite does not confirm the exact number of transistors, it confirmed that the count is over 75B. And now, just one week from the GTC, the official announcement will only confirm the exact number everyone is looking for.
The NVIDIA AMD 102 GPU will feature up to 18432 CDA cores, although it will not be the case with the first wave of GeForce RTX GPUs. GDDR 6X memory will be available with this processor with support for up to 384-bit bus width. The RX4090 is the only other model known to have this feature with16384 cores enabled.
Remember this. 😁Most people made the right choice. More than 75B.
