New Architecture, New GPU, New Systems 

Despite having to hold the GPU Technology Conference as a virtual event, Nvidia pulled out all the stops and revealed a new GPU architecture, a new data center GPU and other new products that the chipmaker believes will have a dramatic impact on the data center market.

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company's announcements for GTC 2020 largely stemmed from the company's new 7-nanometer Ampere GPU architecture, from which the chipmaker introduced its latest GPU for the artificial intelligence acceleration market, the A100.

"The powerful trends of cloud computing and AI are driving a tectonic shift in data center designs so that what was once a sea of CPU-only servers is now GPU-accelerated computing," Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA, said in a statement. "NVIDIA A100 GPU is a 20X AI performance leap and an end-to-end machine learning accelerator – from data analytics to training to inference. For the first time, scale-up and scale-out workloads can be accelerated on one platform. NVIDIA A100 will simultaneously boost throughput and drive down the cost of data centers."

What follows are the five biggest announcements Nvidia made during its GTC 2020 keynote, ranging from the A100 to the new DGX A100 system and a new Mellanox SmartNIC.
