IBM Power8-powered Linux Servers Use Blazing Fast NVIDIA NVLink For AI, Deep Learning

We’ve been hearing about NVIDIA’s NVLink for quite a while — ever since the original announcement of Pascal — but we’ve still not seen it put into broad use. That changes with NVIDIA’s super-high-end Tesla P100, but it’s still not shipping in huge quantities. What might come first is IBM’s newest Linux-based servers, which also employ the use of NVLink for accelerated AI and deep-learning research. As you might suspect with the use of NVLink, IBM’s latest Linux servers are GPU-focused, and because of that, IBM says that they can offer up to 80% better performance-per-dollar than solely x86-based servers. It’s no secret that GPUs are highly parallel beasts, and NVIDIA itself has touted the benefits of them to AI and deep-learning researchers. While that 80% ROI improvement is important,…
