The latest rankings are in for the Top500 list of the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Frontier system powered by AMD EPYC hardware is still in front of the pack. That's not surprising, given that Frontier took pole position when it went online just shy of six months ago... Read more...
NVIDIA kicked off its GTC Developer conference today with a keynote address by Founder and CEO Jensen Huang. The new GeForce RTX 40 Series cards announced at the start will certainly garner the lion's share of headlines, but the companys announcements span many industries and markets. Todays keynote also introduced... Read more...
After unveiling its second generation Habana Gaudi2 AI processor last month with some preliminary performance figures, Intel has followed suit with internally run benchmarks showing its fancy accelerator outpacing NVIDIA's A100 GPU. According to Intel, its results demonstrate clear leadership training performance... Read more...
Back in October of last year, SK hynix announced it was developing fourth generation high bandwidth memory DRAM dubbed HBM3, and now just seven months later it has entered the mass production phase. NVIDIA will be the first to deploy HBM3 after having completed its performance evaluation, though don't expect to see... Read more...
In response to customer demand for high-performance, green data centers, NVIDIA is releasing a liquid cooled version of its A100 Tensor Core PCIe accelerator based on its Ampere GPU architecture. This will be the first in a growing line of GPUs with direct-chip cooling for mainstream servers, which has the potential... Read more...
At GTC in March, NVIDIA announced its baddest GPU to date: Hopper H100. Named after US Navy Rear Admiral Grace Hopper, it was announced alongside an upcoming CPU product called Grace. Hopper isn't quite the biggest GPU NVIDIA has ever createdby a scant few square millimetersbut it's certainly the fastest. Until... Read more...
Imagine a next-generation GeForce RTX graphics card built around a GPU manufactured by Intel. Sounds farfetched, right? It's actually not. While nothing of the sort is imminent or on any current roadmap, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang was surprisingly upfront about the possibility during a recent question and answer... Read more...
Back in the 1990s, NVIDIA got its start selling graphics adapters for desktop PCs. After a rocky start with the NV1, NVIDIA established itself as a performance leader soon thereafter with the release of the TwiN-Texel (TNT) chip, and with the original GeForce 256, as a technology leader, too. That's all ancient... Read more...
NVIDIA is expanding its CPU design efforts in with the introduction of its Grace CPU Superchip, its first discrete data center CPU for high performance computing (HPC) workloads. It's actually two processors linked together in the same package. The chips connect coherently over NVLink-C2C, a new high-speed... Read more...
As you may have heard, NVIDIA is kind of a big deal these days. Like, "bigger than Facebook" big. Mean Green's expertise in providing machine learningaccelerators for hyperscalers, the enterprise and high-performance computing markets (as well as GPUs for gamers of course) has brought them powerful profits. This fame and fortune, unfortunately, Read more...
NVIDIA has been making major inroads in the intelligent vehicle category with its DRIVE platform, and auto makers are taking notice. That includes Jaguar Land Rover, a Tata Motors subsidiary, which announced a multi-year strategic partnership with NVIDIA to build all future luxury Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles around...

Mark Zuckerberg and the gang over at Meta, the parent company to Facebook, have a new and powerful toy to play with courtesy of a collaboration with NVIDIA. Meta designed and NVIDIA built what is called the AI Research SuperCluster (RSC), a massive supercomputer that once fully deployed will rank as the largest... Read more...
The Log4shell exploit in the widely-used Apache Log4j package has had just about every single sysadmin in the world working nights and weekends to desperately get their internet-facing servers updated. The problem isn't simply patching and updating Log4j itselfthat was done before the problem even hit the mainstream... Read more...
For chip companies, bigger profit margins can be found in the data center market, and that's often where we see new innovations manifest first before trickling into the consumer space. To wit, we know AMD is prepping a Zen 3 refresh with stacked 3D V-cache. While we patiently wait, AMD today also just introduced 3rd... Read more...
Cryptocurrency mining is not going to fall by the wayside anytime soon, not when Bitcoin is setting new highs in value, and Ethereum holding the line at around $4,000. As it applies to the latter, and other forms of cryptocurrency that are still mined with GPUs, NVIDIA's CMP (Crypto Mining Processor) HX series of... Read more...
NVIDIA is thumping its chest over a round of impressive benchmark runs that highlight the potency of mixing its A100 accelerators with either Arm or x86 hardware. Regardless of the CPU platform, NVIDIA contends that its accelerators enable the "best results in AI inference," and it has another batch of benchmarks to... Read more...
Most people would be happy just to get their mitts on a single GPU, in the current landscape. The US Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory is much more fortunate, having procured a whopping 2,240 NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs (based on Ampere) for its Polaris supercomputer to "supercharge researcher and...

Though it has been more than a few weeks, and we have long since passed the end of 2020, the U.Ks most powerful supercomputer is now operational. Powered by NVIDIA hardware, the Cambridge-1 is a $100 million, 400 petaflop beast of a computer that ranks among the worlds top 50 fastest computers and is powered by 100... Read more...
NVIDIA kicked off its 7-nanometer Ampere party with the A100, a massively powerful machine learning GPU that began shipping to customers a little over a year ago. The company would later flesh out its machine learning lineup with an 80GB model, though up until now, it has only been offered in the SXM4 form factor... Read more...
Have you ever had a friend or family member casually drop big news on you, as if the subject they are talking about is an everyday occurrence? For example, "Yeah, the weather was great this weekend, I got a lot of yard work done. Next month I'm going to the moon with Elon Musk. Oh, I bought a new hedge trimmer at... Read more...
High bandwidth memory (HBM) has always lived up to its name, it just has not been as widely adopted in mainstream graphics cards as GDDR memory chips. Maybe that will change when HBM3 arrives. Regardless, whatever products do end up getting the HBM3 treatment will see a big jump in bandwidth, according to some figures... Read more...
During its GTC 2021 keynote today, NVIDIA unveiled a new product for high performance computing (HPC) clients, its first-ever data center CPU called Grace. Based on Arm's architecture, NVIDIA claims Grace serves up 10x better performance than the fastest servers on the market currently, for complex artificial... Read more...
