Nvidia builds ‘fastest single computer humanity has ever created’ | TechRadar
Nvidia has just announced its HGX-2 cloud server platform, which it claims powers “the fastest single computer humanity has ever created”.
It combines 16 Tesla V100 graphics cards, which work together to create a giant virtual GPU with half a terabyte of GPU memory and two petaflops of compute power. This is achieved using Nvidia NVSwitch interconnect fabric technology, which links the GPUs together to work as a single GPU.
The announcement was made at Nvidia’s GTC (GPU Technology Conference) event in Taiwan, which is a bit of an appetizer before the main course of Computex 2018 arrives next week.
