Soon after unveiling the Tesla V100 data center GPU based on its next-generation Volta architecture at GTC 2017, NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun Huang announced an updated, Volta-infused DGX-1 server appliance for deep learning data center deployment, along with a totally new product, the NVIDIA DGX Station, that’s being dubbed a ‘Personal AI Supercomputer’.The new NVIDIA DGX-1 is similar to the previous generation offering based on Pascal, but is powered by eight Tesla V100s GPUs, linked together via next-gen NVIDIA NVLink interconnect technology that ups the bandwidth per GPU to 300GB/s. The rest of the system consists of dual, 20-core Intel Xeon E5-2698 CPUs, 512GB of RAM, four 1.92TB SSDs in RAID 0,... Read more...
If you want an early look at what to expect with NVIDIA’s next generation of high performance GeForce graphics processors, code-named Volta, today at GTC 2017 the company's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang just offered the first public unveiling of a product based on the next generation GPU architecture. NVIDIA just announced its new Tesla V100 accelerator that's designed for AI, machine learning, and HPC (High Performance Computing) applications. It's powered by Volta and it's looking like a mighty beast. At the heart of the Tesla V100 is NVIDIA's Volta GV100 GPU, which features a staggering 21.1 billion transistors on a die that measures 815mm2 (this compares to 12 billion transistors and...

We are starting to sense a recurring theme from NVIDIA at the annual GPU Technology Conference (GTC). Last year at GTC NVIDIA unveiled its DGX-1, the world's first deep learning supercomputer. Featuring Tesla P100 GPUs based on its Pascal architecture, the DGX-1 made clear NVIDIA's commitment to deep learning and artificial intelligence. Building on top of that, NVIDIA announced at this year's GTC plans to train 100,000 developers through its Deep Learning Institute in 2017. That is a tenfold increase over the number of developers it trained last year. The reason NVIDIA is making such a big commitment is because AI is a fast growing field that is snaking into different product categories, everything... Read more...
