Nvidia's next-gen GPU for 2016

Nvidia unveiled its new Pascal processor platform, a next-generation GPU.
Nvidia's choice for Pascal represents its ambitions for its new GPU, which relies on new technologies -- 3D memory and the company's new NVLink interconnect -- to make leaps in both speed and size.
NVLink, co-developed with IBM, enables data sharing between CPUs and GPUs at speeds 5 to 12 times faster than what we have today and is meant to replace the standard PCI Express interface used in modern CPU-GPU connections. Nvidia will continue to support PCIe, but will enable NVLink for any systems that utilize Pascal.
3D memory uses a new chip-on-wafer integration that will quadruple energy efficiency while multiplying capacity by 2.5 times current standards.
Pascal will have applications in machine learning and supercomputing, as well cloud computing and gaming. 
Nvidia will replace the Maxwell GPU architecture with Pascal by 2016, Huang said
