Exxact Corporation extends its deep learning solutions with NVIDIA DGX-1 deep learning system

18 Apr 2016 Fremont - Exxact Corporation, a provider of high performance computing solutions for GPU-accelerated deep learning research, will offer the new NVIDIA DGX-1 deep learning system, further expanding its extensive portfolio of deep learning hardware solutions.

"We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this exciting chapter in NVIDIA history", stated Jason Chen, Vice President of Exxact Corporation. "The DGX-1 is a disruptive technology with its unrivaled Pascal GPU architecture. In the future, deep learning will be a part of every possible industry imaginable. Our products will help data scientists and artificial intelligence researchers achieve success faster and more efficiently than ever before."

The world's first deep learning supercomputer designed to meet the unlimited computing demands of artificial intelligence, the NVIDIA DGX-1 is a fully integrated system with deep learning software and development tools for quick, easy deployment. It contains eight NVIDIA Pascal architecture-based Tesla P100 GPUs with a combined 128GB of high-bandwidth GPU memory, and features NVIDIA NVLink high-speed interconnect technology. With up to 170 teraflops of half-precision (FP16) peak performance, the DGX-1 delivers the equivalent throughput of 250 x86 servers.

The DGX-1 offers a complete suite of optimized deep learning software, including the NVIDIA Deep Learning GPU Training System (DIGITS), a complete, interactive system for designing deep neural networks (DNNs), and the newly released NVIDIA CUDA Deep Neural Network library (cuDNN) version 5, a GPU-accelerated library of primitives for designing DNNs. In addition, it includes optimized versions of several widely used deep learning frameworks and provides access to cloud management tools, software updates and a repository for containerized applications.

The DGX-1 system is the newest addition to Exxact Corporation's extensive selection of deep learning solutions such as the Quantum TXR414-1000R, an innovative 10 GPU peer-to-peer 4U solution. The Quantum TXR414-1000R features NVIDIA GPU technology coupled with state-of-the-art PCIe peer-to-peer interconnect technology to deliver up to 70 teraflops of single precision (FP32) peak performance.

The NVIDIA DGX-1 system is immediately available to order and will be shipping to customers with general availability from NVIDIA expected in June. Optional support services for the DGX-1 improve productivity and reduce downtime for production systems.
