World’s Largest Server Companies Announce NVIDIA Volta Systems Supercharged for AI
SANTA CLARA, CA–(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2017) - NVIDIA ( NASDAQ : NVDA ) and its systems partners Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM and Supermicro today unveiled more than 10 servers featuring NVIDIA® Volta architecture-based Tesla® V100 GPU accelerators – the world’s most advanced GPUs for AI and other compute-intensive workloads.
NVIDIA V100 GPUs, with more than 120 teraflops of deep learning performance per GPU, are uniquely designed to deliver the computing performance required for AI deep learning training and inferencing, high performance computing, accelerated analytics and other demanding workloads. A single Volta GPU offers the equivalent performance of 100 CPUs, enabling data scientists, researchers and engineers to tackle challenges that were once impossible.
Seizing on the AI computing capabilities offered by NVIDIA’s latest GPUs, Dell EMC, HPE, IBM and Supermicro are bringing to the global market a broad range of multi-V100 GPU systems in a variety of configurations…
Seems like the big boys are all standardizing on NVDA’s Volta GPUs. I am really looking forward to see how many they sell in Q3 and how fast the world will embrace and implement AI.
And here are the quotes from NVDA’s server partners:
“One of the core principles for Dell EMC is to deliver differentiated solutions to our customers so that they can leverage the most advanced technology for a competitive advantage. To that end, we are proud of the work we do with partners like NVIDIA to build PowerEdge servers ideal for compute-intensive workloads including data analytics, high-performance computing, machine learning and AI.”
– Armughan Ahmad, senior vice president and general manager of Hybrid Cloud and Ready Solutions at Dell EMC
“As deep learning continues to become more pervasive, technology advancements across systems and accelerators need to evolve in order to gain intelligence from large datasets faster than ever before. The HPE Apollo 6500 and HPE ProLiant DL380 systems combine the industry-leading GPU performance of NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU accelerators and Volta architecture with HPE unique innovations in system design and manageability to deliver unprecedented levels of performance, scale and efficiency for high performance computing and artificial intelligence applications.”
– Bill Mannel, vice president and general manager of High Performance Computing and Artificial Intelligence at Hewlett Packard Enterprise
“IBM’s upcoming POWER9 servers will support NVIDIA’s Volta GPU, and will be the only one to support the latest generation of NVLink and PCIe 4.0, which will deliver maximum throughput. With accelerators like Volta, IBM will scale deep learning performance to new heights.”
– Brad McCredie, vice president and IBM Fellow, Cognitive Systems Development at IBM
“Supermicro designs the most application-optimized GPU systems and offers the widest selection of GPU-optimized servers and workstations in the industry. Our high performance computing solutions enable deep learning, engineering and scientific fields to scale out their compute clusters to accelerate their most demanding workloads and achieve fastest time-to-results with maximum performance per watt, per square foot and per dollar. With our latest innovations incorporating the new NVIDIA V100 PCI-E and V100 SXM2 GPUs in performance-optimized 1U and 4U architectures with next-generation NVLink, our customers can accelerate their applications and innovations to help solve the world’s most complex and challenging problems.”
