NVIDIA rolls out GV100 “Dual-Volta” GPU for Workstations

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang announces the GV100 GPU at GTC 2018.

Today NVIDIA announced Quadro GV100 GPU with Volta architecture to “bring unprecedented capabilities in deep learning and simulation to designers, engineers and scientists.” With innovative packaging, the Quadro GV100 comprises two Volta GPUs in the same chassis — linked with NVIDIA’s new NVlink 2 interconnect.

Bringing unprecedented capabilities in deep learning, rendering and simulation to designers, engineers and scientists, the new products allow professionals to design better products in a completely new way. GPU-accelerated techniques, like generative design, and the ability to conduct complex simulations faster mean businesses can explore more design choices, optimize their designs for performance and cost, and consequently bring groundbreaking products to market faster.

The new Quadro GV100 packs 7.4 TFLOPS double-precision, 14.8 TFLOPS single-precision and 118.5 TFLOPS deep learning performance, and is equipped with 32GB of high-bandwidth memory capacity. Two GV100 cards can be combined using NVIDIA NVLink interconnect technology to scale memory and performance, creating a massive visual computing solution in a single workstation chassis.

Other benefits of the GV100 include:

  • Easy implementation of deep learning development – Access the NVIDIA GPU Cloud container registry with GV100 or other high-end Quadro GPUs for a comprehensive catalog of GPU-optimized software tools for deep learning and high performance computing on any workstation.
  • Accelerated deep learning training and inferencing on a desktop workstation – Dedicated Tensor Cores and the ability to scale two GV100s for up to 64GB of HBM2 memory with NVIDIA NVLink provide the performance required for demanding deep learning training and inferencing applications.
  • Supercharged rendering performance – Deep learning-accelerated denoising performance for ray tracing provides fluid visual interactivity throughout the design process.
  • Ability to run complex 3D simulations – Fast double-precision coupled with the ability to scale memory up to 64GB accelerates solver performance in computer-aided engineering workflows.
  • Collaborate, design and create in immersive VR – Support for advanced VR features and massive on-board memory capacity means designers can use physics-based, immersive VR platforms such as NVIDIA Holodeck to conduct design reviews and explore complex photoreal scenes and products at scale.

The World’s Most Powerful Virtual Workstation

With newly added support for the NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs, Quadro vDWS has the power to address increasingly compute-intensive workflows and securely deliver workstation-class performance to any connected device.

With Quadro vDWS, users can:

  • Run interactive, real-time simulations such as ANSYS Discovery Live
  • Speed rendering time of photorealistic images up to 80 percent faster than with previous generations
  • Leverage AI-enhanced applications for more fluid, visual interactivity throughout the design process
  • Work from anywhere, anytime, from any connected device, while data stays secure, never leaving the data center

 

The capabilities of the new Volta architecture allow us to create and interact with mathematical models of extreme complexity which rival the accuracy of prohibitively expensive physics simulation, at a fraction of the cost. The new AI-dedicated Tensor Cores have dramatically increased the performance of our models and the speedier NVLink allows us to efficiently scale multi-GPU simulations.”

Quadro vDWS is available now for over 120 systems from 33 vendors. The NVIDIA Quadro GV100 is available immediately on nvidia.com and starting in April from leading workstation OEMs, including Dell, HP, Lenovo and Fujitsu, and authorized distribution partners, including PNY Technologies in North America and Europe, ELSA/Ryoyo in Japan and Leadtek in Asia Pacific.
