Deep Learning Drives Nvidia’s Tesla Business To New Highs

August 15, 2016 Timothy Prickett Morgan It is a coincidence, but one laden with meaning, that Nvidia is setting new highs selling graphics processors at the same time that SGI, one of the early innovators in the fields of graphics and supercomputing, is being acquired by Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Nvidia worked up from GPUs for gaming PCs to supercomputers, and has spread its technology to deep learning, visualization, and virtual desktops, all with much higher margins than GPUs for PCs or any other client device could deliver. SGI, in its various incarnations, stayed at the upper echelons of computing where there is, to a certain extent, less maneuvering room and more intense competition. In fact, systems using Nvidia’s GPU motors have given the shared memory and clusters – many of…
