Re: GPU rumors 2020

Re: GPU rumors 2020

Maybe also worth to mention, AMD/Cray will build the third U.S. Exa-FLOP system named El Capitan planed for 2023. Not sure why DOE did not choose IBM/Nvidia, would make more sense to me to take a third domestic player beside Intel and AMD. https://www.anandtech.com/show/15581/el-capitan-supercompute...

When I entered this chess community I was confused by the different spellings, and I simply concluded that it must be some kind of abbreviation like CPU/cpu and did not bother to look up and started to imitate the spelling without knowing better... So, the only...
