    lol, who needs volta without acceleration?

      it says "display hardware" in the title, so it is obvious it has nothing to do with gpu

        what idiot would buy volta if he does not need accelerated gpu?

            No. The headline is not misleading, innacurate, or irrelevant to readers of this site.

            I think you're just butthurt from getting your hopes up after a cursory reading of the headline, or maybe you were just itching to use that fancy image you found.

            Save your criticism for something that deserves it. It's not exactly like there aren't plenty of more justifiable targets.

              Yeah, don't listen to him.

                Too bad you need nvidia for deep learning. Wonder when AMD will catch up with that?

                  They're supposed to have Vega fabbed on a 7 nm node, later this year (for machine learning; with mass market applications in 2019).

                  https://www.anandtech.com/show/12233...nm-vega-on-7nm

                  Vega slightly surpassed Pascal on training, and narrowed the gap on inferencing, thanks to its 2x fp16 and 2x int16 operations. But, of course, we all know about Volta...

                  As for software, they have OpenMI. For that, you'll need the ROCm stack, for which the kernel support (on Vega) is still absent from mainline as of 4.17. Hopefully 4.18...
