Nvidia Reveals New Details On Its Drive PX2 Platform, Parker SoC

As far back as Nvidia uncovered its Drive PX 2 stage, there’s been theory and interest about what sort of SoC may combat the profound learning arrangement. Nvidia has turned far from the cell phone, tablet, and handheld business sector and rather composed its cutting edge SoC for self-driving autos and profound learning applications.

Parker is built on two Denver 2.0 CPU centers and a bunch of four Cortex-A57 ARM CPU centers. The GeForce GPU is a 256-center GPU, perhaps in a 256:16:16 arrangement (that is centers, surface mapping units, and ROPs). Clock velocity is obscure, however Nvidia claims the chip gives up to 1.5TFLOPS of handling force in FP16 workloads (the more established Maxwell-based Tegra X1 was fit for 1TFLOPS of FP16 execution.)


The CPU plan is unoriginal, however Nvidia hasn’t uncovered subtle elements on how Denver 2.0 varies from 1.0 and the abnormal state outline the organization gave doesn’t give us much to go on. The former Denver CPU was a wide, all together superscalar center with the capacity to execute up to seven guidelines for each clock cycle, huge L1 stores, and the capacity to make an interpretation of ARM code into its own particular local arrangement for execution. Denver 1.0 additionally incorporated an ARM-good decoder that permitted the ship to plan and execute local ARM code, however it’s not clear if Denver 2.0 is intended to play out this assignment also. Atlantic has more points of interest on Project Denver in case you’re occupied the center. We realize that Denver 2.0 is still a seven-way superscalar design with a 2MB L2 reserve and that it associates with the Cortex-A57 through an exclusive interconnect fabric.


Nvidia’s irregular center blend could mirror a few objectives. To begin with, utilizing a quad pair of Cortex-A57 centers could permit the organization to allocate workloads where it bodes well to manage them. Some multi-strung workloads may run better crosswise over four Cortex-A57 centers than on a couple of Project Denver centers. It’s likewise conceivable that the Cortex-A57 centers are there to handle programs that aren’t a solid match for one of a kind Project Denver Center. The third choice is that the Project Denver CPUs are utilized for particular application preparing, perhaps working together with the GPU, while the swamp standard arm centers handle the working framework or other routine assignments.
Any self-driving auto needs bolster for cameras and Parker is worked to deal with decipher and encode for 4K streams at 60 FPS. The whole SoC is moved down by a 128-piece LPDDR4 interface, which is genuinely inclusive — most SoCs today still depend on a 64-bit interface. This suggests Parker’s memory transmission capacity could be owned by 2x higher than Maxwell, which utilized an ordinary 64-bit LPDDR4 interface.
As far back as Nvidia declared Parker, fanatics of the Nvidia Shield have thought about whether the organization would convey the stage to another era of handheld or TV console. As such, Nvidia has been mum on this point.
