CENATE Adds Powerful Testbed From NVIDIA

Sept. 22 — In September, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Center for Advanced Technology Evaluation, or CENATE, expanded its capabilities for measuring and modeling advanced technologies with the addition of a leading-edge DGX-1 system from NVIDIA Corp. Billed by NVIDIA as “the world’s first deep-learning supercomputer,” the DGX-1 testbed, now housed in the CENATE machine room at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) on PNNL’s campus, complements the slate of systems and testbeds being used to measure, model, and design technologies that will impact future large-scale high-performance computers. Since 1993, NVIDIA has grown to design processing platforms for the gaming, professional visualization, data center, and automotive markets. “This new CENATE machine will allow us to assess performance of machine learning, or deep learning, workloads, providing the means to develop more scalable…
