Nvidia Predicts 570X GPU Performance Increase

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 9 comments

GPU performance will increase up to 570x in the next six years.

TG Daily is reporting that Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang made an astonishing prediction, claiming that GPU computing will dramatically increase over the next six years, a mere 570 times that of today's capabilities in fact, while CPU performance will only increase a staggering 3x in the same timeframe.

According to Huang, who made his revelation at the Hot Chips symposium in Stanford University, the advancement would open the door to advanced forms of augmented reality and the development of real-time universal language translation devices. Wait? A universal translator? Sounds like Huang is talking Star Trek!

Huang also said that such advancements in GPU computation would also boost a number of applications such as interactive ray tracing, CGI simulations, energy exploration, and other "real-world" applications.

    What a clown, a GPU in six years with 1.14 Petaflops of power? He's smoking some amazing crack. What a jackass.

    And yet FPS increases in games haven't gone anywhere near even moores law expected boosts in the past 3 years with Nvidia?

    Hahaha.

    "claiming that GPU computing will dramatically increase over the next six years"......gpu computing is not the same as gpu power....perhaps he means the number of uses/applications will increase by X570 not the power of the gpu.

    Until 6 years have passed I believe we should refrain from stating our opinions in favor or opposed to this statement.

    We simply do not know.

    Look at CPU and GPU computing in the passed decade if you must.

    Now we are up to 3+ Ghz quad, octo and even 16 cores soon.

    Graphics wise:
    TNT2 32MB AGP SDRAM NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 CHIP
    or
    RAVEN 16 AGP 16MB 2D/3D VIDEO VOODOO BANSHEE CHIPSET W/ SOFTWARE

    These were some of the major GPUs of the late '99 variety..

    We now have impressive hardware such as:
    Ati's Radeon 4870 X2
    Nvidia's GTX 285

    And more...

    The times are changing in computer land, and FAST.

    Just wait and see, before you judge.

    Eehh? Who? Moderators??? You gotta be kidding mate - the moment they click "send live" on Toms - they forget about the article. I mean if there were any moderators - they would spot people complaining about $$$ not £££ and irrelevant content being posted here, not to mention content "sponsored by apple" :)  Come on moderators - what you gonna do about this?

    And less than a month later than this 570x increase it gets another 10% speed boost and a 50% price drop when ATi release their card.
