Current GPU challenges in technology

And the evolution that got us where we are today.

Jon Peddie

Here we look at the evolution of graphics processing units (GPUs) and how they have grown in functional and physical size. In particular, we compare Nvidia’s first GPU with its latest one, highlighting the advancements in transistors, manufacturing process, shaders, tensor cores, die size, GFLOPS, and power. The cost-effectiveness of Moore’s Law has changed, but improvements in process nodes, performance, and power efficiency continue. However, one of the challenges facing GPU suppliers is the significant increase in GPU suppliers, which has minimized opportunities for differentiation. The main differentiation opportunity for GPUs becomes software. The challenge suppliers of complex computer graphics
