GTC 2018 - Walking through the show floor of the GPU Technology Conference is always fun, with one of the stand out things that was there being Supermicro's SYS-1029GQ-TVRT, it might not sound like much, but it is a beast. Supermicro makes the SYS-1029GQ-TVRT for machine learning, deep learning and AI development.
Supermicro's SYS-1029GQ-TVRT is a dual CPU system that rocks socket P (LGA 3647) and supports Intel Xeon Scalable Processors, with up to 1.5TB of ECC 3DS LRDIMMs with 12 DIMMs in total supporting DDR4-2666MHz. There are 4 x PCIe 3.0 x15 slots, 1 x PCIe 3.0 x8 (LP) slot, and 2 x 10GbE ports.
But the coolest thing would have to be the 4 x NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs that are fully liquid cooled, and it's an interesting liquid cooler to boot.
From this shot, you can see the front of the 1U rack system, with the four massive waterblocks covering the Tesla V100 GPUs.
You can see the pipes starting from the left, which feed in cool water across the CPU and into the first Tesla P100 (300W) into the second Tesla P100 (another 300W) and then out of the system. The same goes for the other side with the additional two Tesla V100s.
Here you can see the dual Intel Xeon CPUs and a ridiculous amount of RAM, a 2000W PSU keeps everything turned on and running.
Here's a shot of the end of the system where the pipes come out.
