GPUs Power World’s Highest Density Deep Learning Supercomputer in a Box

Orange Silicon Valley and CocoLink Corp have built a functional prototype of what they’re calling “the world’s highest density Deep Learning Supercomputer in a box.” Using the CoCoLink KLIMAX 210 server, they were able to load 20 overclocked GPUs in a single 4U rack unit. Editor’s Note: Satoshi Matsuoka writes that the Tsubame-KFC supercomputer actually has a higher density with with 32 Tesla K110 GPUs in 4U and that the system is used for DNN on a daily basis. With 20 NVIDIA K40 GPUs set at overclock (GPU boost 2) mode, the system is capable of delivering a screaming 100 TeraFLOPS in a single box with 57,600 cores. With specially engineered high performance heat sinks, this pushes the limit of computational density in any server without resorting to liquid cooling. The A.I. researchers…
