The NVIDIA H100 has been listed now at GDEP Advance. It has been priced at 4,745,950 yen which amounts to $ 36,550. This price gets you the NVIDIA Hopper HPC accelerator which comes with a memory of 80 GB. The price mentioned above includes all the hidden costs pertaining to taxes and shipping charges. Without these, the card alone costs $ 33,200.
So far, the official MSRP for the H100 GPU variants hasn’t been confirmed yet by NVIDIA. The Hopper HPC supports PCIe and offers passive cooking for servers.
The H100 first came in front of us in 2022 at the GTC and it won’t be available till the H2 of this year. This will be NVIDIA’s first GPU which will be based on the TSMC 4nm process technology and will be the newest data center solution. This technology can pack around 80 billion transistors in merely a 814 mm² silicon.
This PCIe based 80 GB memory has a memory bandwidth of 2 TB/s. It makes use of the PCIe Express 5.0 interface, making it NVIDIA’s first card to do this. As compared to the SXM variant which has 16896 CUDA cores, this one will only ship with 14592 cores. However, both these configurations don’t represent the full implementation of the GH100 GPU. Another major difference is that the SXM model features the HBM3 memory whereas the H100 PCIe model features the HBM2. The TDP has also been reduced significantly on this variant.
