Supermicro Boosts Performance for HPC and AI Applications with Optimized Servers Featuring New NVIDIA A100 80GB PCIe GPUs
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 28, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

- High Performance 200G Networking Accelerates HPC and AI Applications

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a global leader in enterprise 
computing, storage, networking, and green computing technology, announces a 
wide range of Supermicro servers will support the latest NVIDIA technologies. 
Both 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors or 3rd Gen AMD EPYC(TM) 
processor-based servers will be available that incorporate the new NVIDIA(R) 
A100 80GB PCIe Tensor Core GPUs. With these new technologies, Supermicro 
systems will speed up HPC simulations and analytics applications. Moreover, AI 
applications, including training, inference, and recommendation engines, will 
run faster than previous generations of systems.

Supermicro servers, designed with a Building Block Solutions(R) approach, give 
Supermicro a first to market advantage when incorporating new technologies. 
State-of-the-art accelerated computing options can be quickly integrated and 
tested, bringing faster and more powerful systems to demanding customers 
quicker than other vendors. 

"Supermicro has a long history of bringing systems supporting the latest NVIDIA 
products to market faster than other server manufacturers," said Charles Liang, 
president, and CEO, Supermicro. "The new products from NVIDIA will give our 
customers the ability to solve complex HPC and AI challenges much faster than 
before, decreasing their TCO. We continually bring application-optimized 
servers with the latest technologies available, such as our GPU and 
SuperBlade(R) systems, to help accelerate customer's HPC and AI workloads." 

The new NVIDIA A100 PCIe 80GB GPU will enable faster execution of AI and HPC 
applications, as bigger models can be stored in the GPU memory. In addition, 
future systems will include networking between high-performance servers with 
current and future InfiniBand capabilities.

The GPU SuperServer SYS-420GP-TNR with dual 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable 
processors supports up to ten single or double width GPUs, including the new 
NVIDIA A100 80GB PCIe GPUs. Also, the AS -4124GS-TNR server contains dual AMD 
EPYC 7003 processors with up to eight single or double width GPUs, with the new 
NVIDIA A100 80GB PCIe GPUs. These new 80GB GPUs from NVIDIA will enable more 
extensive data sets to be held in memory, accelerating 
computationally-intensive HPC and AI applications.

"Supercomputing has the potential to transform entire industries and help solve 
some of the toughest problems they face," said Dion Harris, lead technical 
product marketing manager, accelerated computing at NVIDIA. "The extreme 
performance of the NVIDIA A100 80GB PCIe Tensor Core GPUs and NVIDIA NDR 
InfiniBand supported by Supermicro servers provides researchers with the 
unparalleled acceleration required to pursue the toughest industrial HPC 
challenges in the world."

Multiple NVIDIA A100 80GB PCIe devices can be installed in a range of 
Supermicro systems, allowing for flexible AI computing. By implementing 
NVIDIA's Multi-Instance GPU (MIG) technology, organizations can guarantee a 
high quality of service for single applications and as a service for multiple 
users concurrently. In addition, with the larger memory available, data will 
not have to be moved between CPU memory and GPU memory, allowing for higher GPU 

Leveraging NVIDIA NDR 400Gb/s InfiniBand technology with In-Networking 
Computing, networking tasks are offloaded, enabling a dramatic leap in 
performance is enabled, which is required for HPC, AI, and hyperscale cloud 
infrastructures. The new networking performance will allow applications 
designed to run on multiple systems, such as the Supermicro SuperBlade and 
BigTwin(R) servers, to produce results faster, enabling new insights into 
complex problems. Integrated systems combining industry-leading cards, cables, 
and switches on a complex HPC application will soon be able to share data and 
communicate twice as fast as before.

Customers worldwide use Supermicro systems powered by NVIDIA GPUs to tackle 
some of the world's most challenging problems. For example, SZTAKI, the 
Institute for Computer Science and Control, uses NVIDIA HGX(TM) A100-powered 
servers to perform AI research in medical processing, machine learning, and 
language processing.
