AI and high-performance computing gets a boost with the introduction of NVIDIA's new cloud server platform, HGX-2.

NVIDIA has introduced HGX-2, a unified computing platform for both artificial intelligence and high-performance computing in the cloud. The HGX-2 cloud server platform helps provides unique flexibility to support the future of computing. It allows calculations using FP64 and FP32 for scientific computing and simulations, while also enabling FP16 and Int8 for AI training and inference. This versatility meets the requirements of the growing number of applications that combine HPC with AI.

“The world of computing has changed,” said Jensen Huang, founder and chief executive officer of NVIDIA, speaking at the GPU Technology Conference Taiwan. “CPU scaling has slowed at a time when computing demand is skyrocketing. NVIDIA’s HGX-2 with Tensor Core GPUs gives the industry a powerful, versatile computing platform that fuses HPC and AI to solve the world’s grand challenges.”

It incorporates such breakthrough features as NVIDIA NVSwitch interconnect fabric, which seamlessly links 16 NVIDIA Tesla V100 Tensor Core GPUs to work as a single, giant GPU delivering two petaflops of AI performance. The first system built using HGX-2 was the recently announced NVIDIA DGX-2.

HGX-2 comes a year after the launch of the original NVIDIA HGX-1, at Computex 2017 and is a part of the larger family of NVIDIA GPU-Accelerated Server Platforms, an ecosystem of server classes addressing a broad array of AI, HPC and accelerated computing workloads.

Supported by major server manufacturers, the platforms align with the datacenter server ecosystem by offering a mix of GPUs, CPUs and interconnects for diverse training (HGX-T2), inference (HGX-I2) and supercomputing (SCX) applications. Customers can choose a specific server platform to match their accelerated computing workload mix and achieve increased performance.

475 Tax Deductions for Businesses and Self-Employed Individuals

Are you paying more taxes than you have to as a developer or freelancer? The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you’re entitled to. As former IRS Commissioner Mark Everson admitted, “If you don’t claim it, you don’t get it.
