Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang Speaking at the GPU Technology conference in Beijing, China 2017 said that Moore’s Law is dead. He was speaking on the topic “AI: Trends, Challenges and Opportunities.” He believes GPU computing capability and neural network performance are developing at a quicker pace than what Moore’s perception states.
Huang included that the main 5 e-commerce business forces of China, Alibaba, Baidu, Tencent, JD.com, and iFLYTEK, are using Nvidia Volta GPUs to help their cloud. Additionally, Lenovo and Huawei have deployed HGX-based GPU servers.
Moore’s Law is the name given to a perception made by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore in 1965. He noted that the number of transistors per square inch on a thick coordinated circuit multiplied each year, and anticipated the pattern would proceed later on. He later reconsidered this to every two years.
Generally when He discuss Moore’s Law coming to an end, He is alluding to specialized barriers that hinder packing more transistors into littler spaces, while keeping up similar jumps in execution
The other reason Huang says Moore’s Law is dead is on the grounds that it can’t keep pace with advancements in GPU design. Huang discussed GPUs developing in computational capacity over the years, and how they’re the more qualified for advancements in artificial intelligence.
Obviously, Intel couldn’t help contradicting Huang’s remarks. “In my 34 years in the semiconductor industry, I have witnessed the advertised death of Moore’s Law no less than four times.
As we progress from 14 nanometer technology to 10 nanometer and plan for 7 nanometer and 5 nanometer and even beyond, our plans are proof that Moore’s Law is alive and well,” Krzanich stated in a blog post outlining Intel’s plans. “Said CEO Brian Krzanich a year ago.
What GPU is ?
The GPU’s (graphics handling unit) advanced abilities were initially utilized basically for 3D game rendering. Be that as it may, now those capacities are being outfit all the more extensively to quicken computational workloads in areas such as financial modeling, cutting-edge scientific research and oil and gas exploration.
GPUs are upgraded for taking immense clusters of data and playing out a same operation again and again rapidly, dissimilar to PC microchips, which tend to skip everywhere.”The capacity of a GPU with 100+ cores to process thousands of threads can quicken software by 100x over a CPU . the GPU accomplishes this speeding up while being more power-and cost-proficient than a CPU.
The GPU can now take on many multimedia tasks, such as accelerating Adobe Flash video, trans-coding (translating) video between different formats, image recognition, virus pattern matching and more, he truly difficult issues to comprehend are those that have an inherent parallel nature – video processing, image analysis, signal processing.
