Penguin Computing Launches NVIDIA Tesla V100-based Servers

Today Penguin Computing announced strategic support for the field of artificial intelligence through availability of its servers based on the highly-advanced NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU accelerator, powered by the NVIDIA Volta GPU architecture. “Deep learning, machine learning and artificial intelligence are vital tools for addressing the world’s most complex challenges and improving many aspects of our lives,” said William Wu, Director of Product Management, Penguin Computing. “Our breadth of products covers configurations that accelerate various demanding workloads – maximizing performance, minimizing P2P latency of multiple GPUs and providing minimal power consumption through creative cooling solutions.”

NVIDIA Powers Top 13 Most Energy Efficient Supercomputers

Today Nvidia announced that the NVIDIA Tesla AI supercomputing platform powers the top 13 measured systems on the new Green500 list of the world’s most energy-efficient high performance computing systems. All 13 use NVIDIA Tesla P100 data center GPU accelerators, including four systems based on the NVIDIA DGX-1 AI supercomputer. “NVIDIA also released performance data illustrating that NVIDIA Tesla GPUs have improved performance for HPC applications by 3X over the Kepler architecture released two years ago. This significantly boosts performance beyond what would have been predicted by Moore’s Law, even before it began slowing in recent years.”
