Nvidia’s 7nm GPUs geared toward information middle utilization have been delayed, at the very least based on an analyst – making us surprise a few potential knock-on impact by way of a delay for Nvidia’s next-gen client graphics playing cards.
The analyst in query is Chris Caso, who works for Raymond James Monetary (an funding financial institution within the US), and as highlighted by Seeking Alpha, Caso reckons that he hasn’t noticed the standard ‘channel exercise’ which might usually symbolize the build-up to the launch of a product.
On this case, that 7nm product should certainly imply information middle GPUs which Caso was anticipating to be launched this quarter by Nvidia (though that is the primary we’ve heard of that situation, admittedly – certainly earlier this yr, Nvidia’s CEO indicated that there was no rush to 7nm, such was his confidence in Turing).
The analyst believes that this 7nm product is certainly nonetheless inbound, however has been delayed to Q1 or Q2 of 2020.
These information middle choices can be heavyweight GPUs focused at high-performance computing – the kind of merchandise that previously have preceded the launch of the next-generation of Nvidia’s consumer graphics cards.
For example, Volta-based Tesla GPUs followed on from Pascal cards in May 2017, with Nvidia’s Titan V subsequently emerging in December using Volta, and then Turing-based graphics cards followed in September 2018.
This is all guesswork based on rumors, of course, but if the 7nm data center GPUs have indeed been delayed by a…
