Uh thats one of the system boards in the Nvidia HGX-2 systems. You know that thing that has been sold for years. The format of the GPU is SXM3 - and companies can use that format (Habana and Nvidia are the 2 biggest users of that format) from both Nvidia and Inspur.

Looks like it, but how do you know it's not a new generation?

The format of the GPU is SXM3
Where do you see that? The V100 datasheet only lists SMX2. SMX3 sounds like next-gen, unreleased stuff.

and companies can use that format (Habana and Nvidia are the 2 biggest users of that format) from both Nvidia and Inspur.
AFAIK, SMX and SMX2 are Nvidia-proprietary form factors. I don't believe Habana uses it, but feel free to prove me wrong.

I'm not saying they don't use a similar mezzanine card format, but I don't believe it's SMX-based.

Also, why did they disable the comments?
Have you ever read Youtube comments?

It would just be a cesspool of nvidia haters and even nvidia fanboys that reflect poorly on the company, its products, and its userbase.

Moreover, this product is almost certainly not even aimed at gamers, who would comprise the vast majority of commenters. So, most comments would be irrelevant, at best.

As for calling it "the world's largest graphics card", I say it doesn't qualify as a graphics card unless it can run all the same software as a conventional graphics card. So, if it truly is a single graphics card, then let's see some gaming benchmarks!

Gaming benchmarks, or it's not a graphics card!

I don't know man, but I find Jen getting more and more cheesy of late. First, the naming convention of "Super" on the graphic card refresh, then now this teaser of him taking a GPU out of the oven.

Probably too warm to wear a leather jacket in front of the oven. Otherwise, the heat may melt his precious leather jacket, so he is not wearing it.
Wait, you think the oven was actually on?

He should at least put on an apron to add to cheesiness.
Yes. Leather jacket + apron would be more appropriate. Chef's hat would be the finishing touch, but I'm willing to overlook that one in a pandemic.
