Yesterday at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference the company announced its next generation GPU which will be called “Pascal”. This GPU was previously named Volta, Pascal introduces new technologies like NVLINK (UVM) and 3D Memory (stacked DRAM).
Pascal GPUs will not only power gaming GPUs, but also cloud server, HPC and more. Pascal GPUs will be unveiled sometime in 2016 and are set to succeed the Maxwell lineup of GPUs. The new 3D memory (stacked DRAM) is very important. Most GPUs are bottle-necked by bandwidth issues, with Pascal this will no longer be the case.
