AMAX launches GPU solutions based on latest NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU accelerators

11 Jul 2016 Fremont - AMAX's GPU solutions and HPC clusters are now available integrated with the latest NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU accelerator for PCIe. Offerings are expected to begin shipping in Q4 2016.

Powered by the new NVIDIA Pascal architecture, AMAX's Tesla P100 for PCIe-based computing solutions are the perfect fit for data analytics and deep learning applications running at scale in data centres. The solutions utilize the latest 22-core Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processor series and DDR4 2400/2133 MHz memory, along with 15.3 billion transistors per Tesla P100 GPU, enabling a single node to replace up to half-rack of commodity CPU nodes by delivering lightning-fast performance in a broad range of HPC applications. Handling the same workload with far fewer nodes means customers can save up to 70% in overall data centre costs, delivering the best performance and power efficiency for applications across many industries.

"We are very excited about the new Pascal architecture and what it means for deep learning and rendering workloads", stated James Huang, Product Marketing Manager, AMAX. "This product further closes the gap between HPC and the data centre, bringing significantly more compute power to large data centres within a smaller footprint."

NVIDIA Tesla P100 accelerators are the world's most advanced data center GPUs ever built, designed to boost throughput and save money for HPC and hyperscale data centres. The Tesla P100 for PCIe-based servers features four technology breakthroughs:

  • New Pascal Architecture: Delivering 4.7 and 9.3 TeraFLOPS of double and single precision for HPC, 18.7 TeraFLOPS of FP16 for deep learning, the new architecture achieves a 12x performance increase for neural network training compared to previous-generation Maxwell-based solutions.
  • 16nm FinFET: The Pascal architecture features the largest FinFET chip ever built, featuring 15.3 billion transistors built on 16 nanometer FinFET fabrication technology. This translates to both high performance and energy efficiency.
  • CoWoS with HBM2: Unifying data and compute into single package for up to 3X memory bandwidth over prior-generation solution.
  • Optimized AI Algorithms: New half-precision instructions allow cards to achieve more than 18 TeraFLOPS of peak performance for deep learning applications.

"Deep learning is the new computing model for the modern data centre, where HPC and AI intersect", stated Roy Kim, Senior Group Product Manager of Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. "AMAX's server platforms designed for Tesla P100 are optimized for deep learning and data analytics applications to run at scale, delivering the fastest performance and highest efficiency."

As an Elite member of the NVIDIA Partner Network Programme, AMAX is stringent in providing cutting-edge technologies, delivering enhanced, energy-efficient performance for the HPC and parallel computing industries featuring NVIDIA DGX-1, Tesla K80, and Tesla K40 series. AMAX is now accepting pre-orders for DGX-1, quotes and consultations for Tesla P100.
