Super Server Churns Out 2 PetaFLOPS

Super Micro Computer adopts the NVIDIA HGX-2 cloud server platform to develop what it calls the world's most powerful systems for artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing (HPC). From natural speech by computers to autonomous vehicles, rapid progress in AI has transformed entire industries. To enable these capabilities, AI models are exploding in size. HPC applications are similarly growing in complexity as they unlock new scientific insights.

 

HGX-2 based systems provide a superset design for datacenters accelerating AI and HPC in the cloud.  With fine-tuned optimizations, the HGX-2 server will deliver the highest compute performance and memory for rapid model training. "As AI model complexity and size are exploding, researchers and data scientists need new levels of GPU-accelerated computing," said Ian Buck, vice president and general manager of accelerated computing at NVIDIA. "HGX-2 provides the power to handle these massive new models for faster training of advanced AI, while saving significant cost, space and energy in the datacenter."
