NVIDIA Expands Machine Learning Footprint in Europe, Previews First Volta GPU

Home News NVIDIA Expands Machine Learning Footprint in Europe, Previews First Volta GPU Michael Feldman | September 29, 2016 22:52 CEST At NVIDIA’s first European GPU Technology Conference (GTC Europe) taking place in Amsterdam this week, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced a number of new users of the DGX-1 GPU-powered “supercomputer in a box.” Huang also teased attendees with an early look at one of their next-generation Volta GPUs designed to power self-driving cars. The DGX-1 is the company’s Pascal GPU-based server, which houses eight P100 processors representing about 170 half-precision (FP16) teraflops — the kind most appropriate for training the deep neural networks that the system is designed for. As one of the rare examples of server hardware designed and built by NVIDIA, the DGX-1 was developed for the purpose of…
