Nvidia is selling DGX systems based on the Volta architecture

Company NvidiaLast Wednesday, the company announced that it had sold the first commercial DGX-1 system with the Volta architecture to the Center for Clinical Data Research (CCDS), MGH and BWH. The company is a Massachusetts-based research center focused on machine learning And artificial intelligence (AI) works in health. In fact, this system is an update for CCDS, which used the first DGX-1 systems with Pascal architecture last December. Also, Nvidia will sell DGX stations to CCDS at the end of this month.

  • Nvidia independently introduced the world’s most optimized supercomputer
  • Everything about the dark parts and weaknesses of artificial intelligence and its confrontation with humans (part one)

In CCDS, artificial intelligence will be used in the field of learning deep neural networks. This information will be used in the Massachusetts General Hospital complex and will help doctors to quickly diagnose and accurately treat diseases.

As ​​shown in the exhibition GTC 2017 released for the first time, DGX-1V server of 8 V100 GPUs with Tesla architecture and price It benefits 149 thousand dollars. The original DGX-1 used two 16-core Haswell-EP processors, but the newer model uses two 20-core Broadwell processors.-EP, which is capable of using 8 V100 GPUs, instead of 8 P100 GPUs. It was also revealed at the GTC 2017 exhibition that the single-processor version of these workstations with 4 V100 graphics processors and a price of $69,000 will be released. The table below shows the specifications of these systems.

Looking back we find that these products The continuation of Nvidia’s production process in the branch of professional/server products is based on Volta architecture, with the launch of DGX Volta in the third quarter and the installation and commissioning of these products in the fourth quarter, Nvidia will fulfill its goals. In recent months, the first Tesla V100 accelerator was made available to researchers at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) conference in July 2017, while the version of the Tesla V100 with support for the PCIe It was officially introduced in June at the ISC 2017 exhibition.
