SAN JOSE, Calif., May 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspur, a leading datacenter and cloud computing total solutions provider, cooperate with NVIDIA® to unveil AGX-2, an ultra-high density AI computing server to accelerate Artificial Intelligence at GTC (GPU Technology Conference) 2017. It is the world's first 2U 8-GPUs with enabled Link™ 2.0, which is designed to provide maximum throughput for superior application performance to science and engineering computing, taking AI computing to the next level.
The AGX-2 supports up to 8 lastest NVIDIA®Tesla® V100 GPUs, offering either PCI-e interface or NVLink 2.0 for faster interlink connections between the GPUs, reaching peak performance results of up to 150GB/s. AGX-2 provides great I/O expansion capabilities, supporting 8x NVMe/SAS/SATA hot swap hard drives and high-speed cluster interconnect for up to 4x 100Gbps EDR InfiniBand ™ connector cards. AGX-2 supports both air-cooling and on-chip liquid-cooling to optimize and improve power efficiency and performance.
According to the LINPACK benchmark results, the AGX-2 achieves 29.33 TFLOPS, which is 2.47 times faster than the testing on NF5288M4 manufactured by Inspur with 4 GPUs in a 2U form factor. Regarding the real performance of training on an AI model, the AGX-2 delivers 1165 images/s, which is 2.49 times faster than the NF5288M4 with 4 Tesla M40, when the GoogLeNet model is trained with TensorFlow.
Leijun Hu, Vice President of Inspur Group, said "NVIDIA is the world leader in visual computing and is reshaping the next era of AI computing. Inspur partners with NVIDIA to announce the new and innovative AGX-2 GPU server today, which offers high computing density and enables faster, easier multi-GPU computing. The cooperation between the two companies also shows Inspur's capability to develop high performance computing servers to propel AI, deep learning and advanced analytics, and we are hoping to provide even more energy-efficient computing solutions to serve customers around the world.
"Inspur , while having a long term cooperation with NVIDIA ,has rich R&D and practice experience in computing system for deep learning as well as long time history cooperation with NVIDIA," said Marc Hamilton. VP, Solutions Architecture and Engineering at NVIDIA. "The launch of AGX-2, the Ultra Dense Server which employs world's top NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU and high-speed interconnect NVLink technology, will comprehensively increase efficiency in AI and scientific engineering computing in terms of performance and energy consumption, and and it will provide both Chinese and global enterprises with leading high-performance computing capability."
