AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ Processors Ecosystem Continues to Grow with Integration into New NVIDIA DGX A100

New NVIDIA DGX A100 sys¬≠tem harnes¬≠ses PCIe¬ģ 4 sup¬≠port, high-core count, and over¬≠all per¬≠for¬≠mance of 2nd Gen AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ Pro¬≠ces¬≠sors to crea¬≠te the world‚Äôs most advan¬≠ced AI system

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) ‚ÄĒ AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ¬≠ced the NVIDIA DGX‚ĄĘ A100, the third gene¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on of the world‚Äôs most advan¬≠ced AI sys¬≠tem, is the latest high-per¬≠for¬≠mance com¬≠pu¬≠ting sys¬≠tem fea¬≠turing 2nd Gen AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ pro¬≠ces¬≠sors. Deli¬≠ve¬≠ring 5 peta¬≠flops of AI per¬≠for¬≠mance, the ela¬≠s¬≠tic archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re of the NVIDIA DGX A100 enables enter¬≠pri¬≠ses to acce¬≠le¬≠ra¬≠te diver¬≠se AI workloads such as data ana¬≠ly¬≠tics, trai¬≠ning, and inference.

NVIDIA DGX A100 lever¬≠a¬≠ges the high-per¬≠for¬≠mance capa¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ties, 128 cores, DDR4-3200MHz and PCIe¬ģ 4 sup¬≠port from two AMD EPYC 7742 pro¬≠ces¬≠sors run¬≠ning at speeds up to 3.4 GHz¬Ļ. The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sor is the first and only cur¬≠rent x86-archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re ser¬≠ver pro¬≠ces¬≠sor that sup¬≠ports PCIe¬ģ 4, pro¬≠vi¬≠ding lea¬≠der¬≠ship high-band¬≠width I/O that‚Äôs cri¬≠ti¬≠cal for high per¬≠for¬≠mance com¬≠pu¬≠ting and con¬≠nec¬≠tions bet¬≠ween the CPU and other devices like GPUs.

‚ÄúOnly 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors can pro¬≠vi¬≠de up to 64 cores and 128 lanes of PCIe 4 inter¬≠con¬≠nec¬≠ti¬≠vi¬≠ty in a sin¬≠gle x86 data cen¬≠ter pro¬≠ces¬≠sor, and we‚Äôre exci¬≠ted to see how the power of the NVIDIA DGX A100 sys¬≠tem enables the I/O band¬≠width to be effec¬≠tively dou¬≠bled,‚ÄĚ said Rag¬≠hu Nam¬≠bi¬≠ar, cor¬≠po¬≠ra¬≠te vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent, data cen¬≠ter eco¬≠sys¬≠tems and appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠on engi¬≠nee¬≠ring, AMD. ‚ÄúWith 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors, our part¬≠ners and cus¬≠to¬≠mers can maxi¬≠mi¬≠ze per¬≠for¬≠mance and cost effi¬≠ci¬≠en¬≠ci¬≠es in hete¬≠ro¬≠ge¬≠neous com¬≠pu¬≠ting, vir¬≠tua¬≠li¬≠zed and hyper con¬≠ver¬≠ged infra¬≠struc¬≠tu¬≠re workloads, pro¬≠vi¬≠ding teams with the fle¬≠xi¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty and capa¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty to stay at the fore¬≠front of innovation.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúThe NVIDIA DGX A100 deli¬≠vers a tre¬≠men¬≠dous leap in per¬≠for¬≠mance and capa¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ties,‚ÄĚ said Char¬≠lie Boyle, vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent and gene¬≠ral mana¬≠ger, DGX sys¬≠tems at NVIDIA. ‚ÄúThe 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors used in DGX A100 pro¬≠vi¬≠de high per¬≠for¬≠mance and sup¬≠port for PCIe Gen4. NVIDIA has put tho¬≠se fea¬≠tures to work to crea¬≠te the world‚Äôs most powerful AI sys¬≠tem while main¬≠tai¬≠ning com¬≠pa¬≠ti¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty with the GPU-opti¬≠mi¬≠zed soft¬≠ware stack used across the enti¬≠re DGX family.‚ÄĚ
