- The big increase in number of transistors comes because Nvidia is using a 16nm FinFET process. The chips will be fabricated by TSMC.
- The current generation, Maxwell, is based on a 28nm process. Pascal is expected to be commercially available in 2016.
- Pascal processors will support 3D memory and mixed prevision floating point calcuation, which are both useful for deep learning.
In 2016, Nvidia’s Deep Learning GPU Will Have 17 Billion Transistors
