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

New NVIDIA DGX A100 sys­tem harnes­ses PCIe® 4 sup­port, high-core count, and over­all per­for­mance of 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ Pro­ces­sors to crea­te the world’s most advan­ced AI sys­tem

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ­ced the NVIDIA DGXA100, the third genera­ti­on of the world’s most advan­ced AI sys­tem, is the latest high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting sys­tem fea­turing 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ pro­ces­sors. Deli­vering 5 peta­flops of AI per­for­mance, the elastic archi­tec­tu­re of the NVIDIA DGX A100 enab­les enter­pri­ses to acce­le­ra­te diver­se AI workloads such as data ana­ly­tics, trai­ning, and infe­rence.

NVIDIA DGX A100 lever­a­ges the high-per­for­mance capa­bi­li­ties, 128 cores, DDR4-3200MHz and PCIe® 4 sup­port from two AMD EPYC 7742 pro­ces­sors run­ning at speeds up to 3.4 GHz¹. The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro­ces­sor is the first and only cur­rent x86-archi­tec­tu­re ser­ver pro­ces­sor that sup­ports PCIe® 4, pro­vi­ding lea­ders­hip high-band­width I/O that’s cri­ti­cal for high per­for­mance com­pu­ting and con­nec­tions bet­ween the CPU and other devices like GPUs.

Only 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro­ces­sors can pro­vi­de up to 64 cores and 128 lanes of PCIe 4 inter­con­nec­ti­vi­ty in a sin­gle x86 data cen­ter pro­ces­sor, and we’re exci­ted to see how the power of the NVIDIA DGX A100 sys­tem enab­les the I/O band­width to be effec­tively dou­bled,” said Raghu Nam­bi­ar, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent, data cen­ter eco­sys­tems and app­li­ca­ti­on engi­nee­ring, AMD. “With 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro­ces­sors, our part­ners and cus­to­mers can maxi­mi­ze per­for­mance and cost effi­ci­en­ci­es in hete­ro­ge­ne­ous com­pu­ting, vir­tua­li­zed and hyper con­ver­ged infra­st­ruc­tu­re workloads, pro­vi­ding teams with the fle­xi­bi­li­ty and capa­bi­li­ty to stay at the fore­front of inno­va­ti­on.”

The NVIDIA DGX A100 deli­vers a tre­men­dous leap in per­for­mance and capa­bi­li­ties,” said Char­lie Boyle, vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger, DGX sys­tems at NVIDIA. “The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro­ces­sors used in DGX A100 pro­vi­de high per­for­mance and sup­port for PCIe Gen4. NVIDIA has put tho­se fea­tures to work to crea­te the world’s most power­ful AI sys­tem while main­tai­ning com­pa­ti­bi­li­ty with the GPU-opti­mi­zed soft­ware stack used across the ent­i­re DGX fami­ly.”
