Nvidia’s Tesla P100 Steals Machine Learning From The CPU

April 21, 2016 Paul Teich Pattern analytics, deep learning, and machine learning have fueled a rapid rise in interest in GPU computing, in addition to GPU computing applications in high performance computing (HPC) and cloud-based data analytics. As a high profile example, Facebook recently contributed its “Big Sur” design to the Open Compute Project (OCP), for use specifically in training neural networks and implementing artificial intelligence (AI) at scale. Facebook’s announcement of Big Sur says “Big Sur was built with the Nvidia Tesla M40 in mind but is qualified to support a wide range of PCI-e cards,” pointing out how pervasive Nvidia’s Tesla platform has become for AI research. Big Sur is a 4U high chassis housing a two-processor (2P) board connected to a daughter card featuring eight full-height double-width…
