THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL DEEPLEARNING SYSTEM FORTHE MOST COMPLEX AI CHALLENGES
The Challenge of Scaling to Meet the Demands of Modern AI and Deep Learning
Deep neural networks are rapidly growing in size and complexity, in response to the most pressing challenges in business and research. The computational capacity needed to support today’s modern AI workloads has outpaced traditional data center architectures. Modern techniques that exploit increasing use of model parallelism are colliding with the limits of inter-GPU bandwidth, as developers build increasingly large accelerated computing clusters, pushing the limits of data center scale. A new approach is needed – one that delivers almost limitless AI computing scale in order to break through the barriers to achieving faster insights that can transform the world.

 

Performance To Train The Previously Impossible

Increasingly complex AI demands unprecedented levels of compute. NVIDIA® DGX-2™ is the world’s first 2 petaFLOPS system, packing the power of 16 of the world’s most advanced GPUs, accelerating the newest deep learning model types that were previously untrainable. With groundbreaking GPU scale, you can train models 4X bigger on a single node. In comparison with legacy x86 architectures, DGX-2’s ability to train ResNet-50 would require the equivalent of 300 servers with dual Intel Xeon Gold CPUs costing over $2.7 million dollars.

Leading edge research demands the freedom to leverage model parallelism and requires never-before-seen levels of inter-GPU bandwidth. NVIDIA has created NVSwitch to address this need. Like the evolution from dial-up to ultra-high speed broadband, NVSwitch delivers a networking fabric for the future, today.
