If you think that only the very tech specified companies like Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, Google can only work on Artificial Intelligence then please give a break to your brain and just read about what the NVIDIA has launched!
NVIDIA Just Launched The World’s Largest GPU For $400,000
These days the GTC (GPU Technology Conference) is celebrated. In this conference, the people related to the graphics sector and, above all, of Nvidia debate and hold conferences. In this year’s edition of the GTC, artificial intelligence, deep learning, autonomous cars, big data and the advancement in technology to make life easier with connected cities and sensors that keep an eye on our health are the main issues. To investigate these fields, Nvidia has launched its DGX-2, the most powerful super personal computer in the world.
The supercomputer is huge systems they contain multiple processors and graphics cards is necessary for researchers. In a recent news, you must know that Japan was preparing its new supercomputer to find a viable source of energy for the next generations.
NVIDIA wants its DGX-2 to be more ‘walk around’ environments.
Recently the CEO and founder of Nvidia held a conference in the framework of the GTC in which he presented the DGX-2,(the replay of the veteran to technological levels) DGX-1. This new device from Nvidia is the REAL BEAST whose task is to, mainly, research on topics such as artificial intelligence and not only that even the specifications of the DGX-2 are amazing.
The device has 16 Nvidia Tesla V100 GPUs with Volta architecture and 32 GB of HBM2 memory each. They will be connected with two Intel Xeon Platinum processors and, in total, the device will have 1.5 TB of DDR4 memory, in addition to the total 512 GB of HBM2 memory. Storage is 30 TB NVMe SSD that can be expanded to 60 TB. Specifically, it is about 10 times more powerful than the previous generation thanks to the new Volta architecture and the processors. Here, we leave you the complete specifications below:-
All these components will be connected via a path that provides the bi-directional speed of 2.4 TB that guarantees a minimum latency between GPU and processor.
This BEAST consumes the 110 kW and will not be easy to move since it will weigh about 160 KG. Everything has a price and when you will talk about this BEAST, it will cost you $399,000. The good news is that the previous version, the DGX-1, remains at $149,000.
THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF VOLTA IS STILL IN WAITING!
