SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NVIDIA today announced that a lineup of the world’s leading computer manufacturers are adopting new NVIDIA Grace™ superchips to create the next generation of servers that turbocharge AI and HPC work for the exascale era.
Atos, Dell Technologies, GIGABYTE, HPE, Inspur, Lenovo and Supermicro plan to deploy servers built with the NVIDIA Grace CPU Superchip and NVIDIA Grace Hopper™ Superchip.
All of these new systems benefit from the just announced Grace and Grace Hopper designs on the NVIDIA HGX™ platformthat provide manufacturers with the blueprints needed to build systems that deliver the best performance and twice the memory bandwidth and power efficiency of today’s leading data center processors.
“As supercomputing enters the era of exascale AI, NVIDIA is teaming up with our OEM partners to enable researchers to tackle massive challenges previously out of reach,” said Ian Buck, vice president of Hyperscale. and HPC at NVIDIA. “In climate science, energy research, space exploration, computational biology, quantum computing and more, the NVIDIA Grace CPU Superchip and Grace Hopper Superchip provide the foundation for the most powerful platform. most advanced in the world for HPC and AI.
Early adopters at the forefront of innovation
Major supercomputing centers in the United States and Europe will be among the first to have systems with superchips.
Today, Los Alamos National Laboratory announced that Venado, its next-generation system, will be the first system in the United States to be powered by NVIDIA Grace CPU technology. Built using the HPE Cray EX supercomputer, Venado is a heterogeneous system that will include a mix of Grace CPU Superchip nodes and Grace Hopper Superchip nodes for a broad and emerging set of applications. Upon completion, the system should exceed 10 exaflops of AI performance.
“By equipping LANL researchers with NVIDIA Grace Hopper performance, Venado will continue this lab’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of scientific breakthroughs,” said Irene Qualters, Associate Director for Simulation and Computing at LANL. “NVIDIA’s accelerated computing platform and expansive ecosystem remove performance barriers, enabling LANL to make new discoveries that will benefit the nation and society as a whole.”
Alps, the new system of the Swiss National Computing Center, which will also be built by HPE using theHPE Cray EX Supercomputer, will use the Grace CPU chip to enable groundbreaking research in a wide range of fields. It will serve as a generalist system open to the scientific community in Switzerland, as well as to the rest of the world.
NVIDIA Grace accelerates compute-intensive workloads
The NVIDIA Grace CPU superchip has two arms®processor-based, cohesively connected through high bandwidth, low latency, and low power NVIDIA NVLink®-C2C interconnect. This revolutionary design features up to 144 high-performance Arm Neoverse cores with scalable vector extensions and a 1 terabyte per second memory subsystem.
Superchip’s Grace CPU interfaces with the latest PCIe Gen5 protocol to enable maximum connectivity with the highest performance GPUs, as well as NVIDIA ConnectX®-seven intelligent network interface cards and NVIDIA BlueField®-3 DPU for secure HPC and AI workloads.
The Grace Hopper Superchip combines an NVIDIA Hopper GPU with an NVIDIA Grace processor in an integrated module connected to NVLink-C2C to address large-scale HPC and AI applications.
Systems powered by NVIDIA Grace will run the portfolio of NVIDIA AI and NVIDIA HPC Software for full-stack embedded computing.
