NVIDIA Ships First Volta-based DGX Systems

This Wednesday, NVIDIA has announced that they keep shipped their first off commercial Volta-based DGX-1 step to the MGH & BWH Centre for Clinical Counsel Science (CCDS), a Massachusetts-based trial crowd focusing on AI and appliance learning applications in healthcare. In a sense, this serves as a generational upgrade as CCDS was one of the cardinal analysis institutions to hire a Pascal-based beginning lifetime DGX-1 last December. In addition, NVIDIA is shipping a DGX Station to CCDS subsequent this month.

At CCDS, these AI supercomputers testament abide to be used in knowledge broad neural networks for the mark of evaluating medical images and scans, using Massachusetts Regular Hospital’s assemblage of phenotypic, genetics, and imaging data. In turn, this can relieve doctors and medical practitioners in manufacture faster and extra accurate diagnoses and treatment plans.

First announced at GTC 2017, the DGX-1V server is powered by 8 Tesla V100s and priced at $149,000. The infant iteration of the DGX-1 was priced at $129,000 with a 2P 16-core Haswell-EP configuration, on the contrary has in that been updated to the alike 20-core Broadwell-EP CPUs establish in the DGX-1V, allowing for apparent P100 to V100 drop-in upgrades. As for the DGX Station, this was as well unveiled at GTC 2017, and is essentially a adequate garret workstation 1P chronicle of the DGX-1 with 4 Tesla V100s. This moisten cooled DGX Station is priced at $69,000.

Taking a manner back, this is a continuation of NVIDIA’s rollout of Volta-based professional/server products, with DGX Volta bunch its Q3 commence date, and OEM Volta targeted at Q4. In the elapsed months, the inceptive Tesla V100 GPU accelerators were habituated elsewhere to researchers at the 2017 Convention on Personal computerDesktop,laptop,server,Ultrabook Sight and Base Recognition (CVPR) in July, while a PCIe legend of the Tesla V100 was formally announced during ISC 2017 in June.
