    Phoronix: NVIDIA CUDA 10 Adding nvJPEG, Turing Support

    NVIDIA is capitalizing upon SIGGRAPH 2018 as now in addition to launching the Quadro RTX GPUs and open-sourcing the MDL SDK they have announced their work on CUDA 10...

    GTX 2000? So now they're gonna run into the next GeForce 5000?
    nVidia and AMD are just as braindead as ARM when it comes to calling its products? Look at this:
    ARMv6J is the architecture of Raspberry Pi v1 B+. Nokia N95 has an ARM11 based CPU. The ARM architecture is now at ARMv8. Soon enough they're going to make the ARMv11 architecture and get confused with CPUs from the year 2007. Good job ARM.
    The GeForce line started with single digits: 2, 3, 4. Keep in mind the odd GeForce 256. Then we continue into GeForce 5200, 5500, 5700, 5900, 6200, 6600, 6800, 7300, 7600, 7800, 7900, 8800, 9800... and we're back to 200. There's already 1 collision by the year 2010. Let's keep going until we're now at GeForce 980 and the next is going to be 2000, just heading straight for a collision with the 5k series.
    AMD started with Radeon 7000, 8000, 9000, X950, X1950, HD 2000, HD 3000, HD 4000, HD 5000, HD 6000, HD 7000. That's 1 collision here in 2012. We go further and get R9 280, R9 380, R9 480, R9 580, and now just Vega with a number.

      The only braindead naming is from ARM, as their hardware is going to be around and in active use for decades after it is produced or even EOLed by the manufacturer.

      GPU naming collisions happened (and will happen for NVIDIA) when the older GPU is looong gone and can be found for a few bucks on Ebay at most.

        Why couldn't it be GTX 1100?

        This has already happened with ARM7 (used in the Game Boy Advance) and ARMv7 (although I don't know if there was confusion).

        There were HD 8000 cards too, just saying.

          That makes logical sense, but Nvidia's argument is probably that the perceived difference between something like a 1200-series and 1300-series product would seem less than the difference between a 3000-series and 4000-series product. They want each new generation to seem like a big deal.

          And as for what happens once they pass the 9000-series, I guess if we still have GPU cards as we do today, they can just switch to a new numbering/naming scheme.

            No one cares, those numbers don't mean anything anyways, and no one will be confused since the old GPUs have long stopped being sold.

              NVIDIA will also have RTX parts. Because AMD's RX series wasn't enough.
