NVIDA has surpassed the 2 terabyte-per-second memory bandwidth mark with its new GPU, the Santa Clara graphics giant announced Monday.

The top-of-the-line A100 80GB GPU is expected to be integrated in multiple GPU configurations in systems during the first half of 2021.

Earlier this year, NVIDIA unveiled the A100 featuring Ampere architecture, asserting that the GPU provided “the largest leap in performance” ever in its lineup of graphics hardware. It said AI training on the GPU could see performance boosts of 20 times the speed of its earlier generation units.
