In May of this year, NVIDIA presented a powerful GPU called the A100. It is intended for use in data centers such as NVIDIA DGX A100… Today, the company also announced the DGX Station A100, “a desktop workstation with data center performance.”
As you might guess from the name, the new product is equipped with an A100 video card, or, to be more precise, four A100 cards with 40 GB or 80 GB of memory. Thus, the total amount of GPU memory is 160 GB or 320 GB. Declared performance: 2.5 petaFLOPS AI; 5 petaFLOPS INT8. A 64-core AMD 7742 chip operating at 2.25 GHz (with a boost up to 3.4 GHz) is used as a central processor. RAM installed 512 GB (DDR4). The NVME storage capacity is 7.68 TB.
BMW is already using DGX workstations, Lockheed Martin, NTT Docomo, and the Pacific Northwest Laboratory for research, data mining, and machine learning technologies.
