Do You Have $199,000 for a Video Card?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Wow -- first look at Nvidia's Ampere workstation/server cards -- https://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-ampere-A100-gpu-7nm

While obviously not for us, it is good to see the initial Ampere architecture in the wild.

Well, to be fair, it's $199K for an nVidia DGX A100 machine with 8 A100 GPUs.

I already have a 1080TI. Will I be able to get a free upgrade or will the developers rip me off again for another new video card? After all this is just the same thing as my 1080TI with just a few more "trans_twisters" stuck together plus a small increase in VRam. Honestly I get so tired of this word not allowed.

Why would you get a free upgrade?  If it's "just the same thing" as with what you have, then you don't really need an upgrade, much less entitled to a free one?

Hmmm, I'll keep my 1080 and get a 1980 Skylane in really good shape instead....  🤪

LOL it is just a joke. Some folks here need to get out of the house once in a while for a bit of sun light.

Hopefully, the vitamin D will also help you write better jokes next time.

i was dissapointed with the recent nvidia key note.  My expectation was for a release of the 3080 ti.  Or atleast a more defined path to release.  Namely.  Release date, price, VRAM confirmation.
