NVIDIA Hopper architecture
The newly announced Hopper architecture brings many improvements over the previous generation of Ampere. Using TSMC’s cutting-edge 4N process (an improved 4nm technology), the GH100 chip is equipped with more than 80 billion transistors and extremely fast HBM3 memory with a throughput of 3 terabytes per second.
Hopper will offer several interesting innovations, whether it is Confidential Computing, which protects data and code from leaks or disruption from the outside, or improvements in computational performance of transformer models or DPX Instructions functionality for faster and more efficient dynamic programming. And, of course, the new chip is enhanced with support for 4. generation NVLink or the fifth generation PCI Express interface (PCIe Gen5).
