NVIDIA just continues to smash the GPU and supercomputing game, with the announcement of their newest DGX SATURNV supercomputer that is designed from the ground up on building smarter cars and next generation GPUs.
The new DGX SATURNV is ranked 28th on the Top500 list of supercomputers, but thanks to the use of the Tesla P100-powered DGX-1 units, it's the most efficient supercomputer in the world. Up until now, the most efficient machine on the Top500 list is at 6.67 GigaFlops/Watt, but the new NVIDIA DGX SATURNV is capable of a massive 9.46 GigaFlops/Watt, a huge 42% improvement.
Inside of the NVIDIA DGX-1 we have:
- Up to 170 teraflops of half-precision (FP16) peak performance
- Eight Tesla P100 GPU accelerators, 16GB memory per GPU
- NVLink Hybrid Cube Mesh
- 20 Core Broadwell-E "Xeon E5-2698 v4" CPU (2.2GHz)
- 7TB SSD DL Cache
- Dual 10GbE, Quad InfiniBand 100Gb networking
- 3U - 3200W
