News on January 30, NVIDIA GH100 GPU chip broke the news: the area is huge, more than 1000 square millimeters, according to foreign media video cards news, Twitter user @kopite7kimi exposed the size of the NVIDIA GH100 GPU chip. This product will be used for professional computing acceleration purposes and can perform operations such as ML machine learning.
The whistleblower said that the chip has an area of 1000mm 2, which is about 20% larger than the previous generation GA100 chip. The GH100 is expected to be officially released at Nvidia’s GTC 2022 event in March.
Although it has been reported that the GH100 uses MCM multi-chip packaging, some sources said that this chip does not use MCM technology, and the area of a single chip reaches 1000mm 2.
We learned that due to such a huge area, sources predict that the power consumption of the GH100 may reach 1000W, and a dedicated water cooling device is required to cool it.
