That's all very impressive...
...but can it run Crysis?
Nvidia has lifted the lid on a fresh line of products based on its latest Ampere architecture, revealing its latest A100 GPU - which promises to be 20X more powerful than its predecessor and capable of powering AI supercomputers – as well as a smaller chip for running machine learning workloads on IoT devices.

Do you mean directly? As in a workstation/PC?
If so, then no, at least not as far as I know. The A100s' are specifically designed for data-centre usage. They don't even have video output on them.
But Ampere, the microarcitecture the new A100 is built on, is coming to workstation and mainstream cards at some point, we just don't know when yet.
For ref, nVidia have stated the Ampere based chips will replace all current mainstream consumer (i.e. regular GTX/RTX), prosumer (Titan) and professional (Quadro) cards. With the expectation being that the Titan and Quadro cards will be similar, if not the same as the chips being used in the A100, and the other cards being a cut down version (i.e. less CUDA cores etc).
