Some of the world’s fastest computers employ Nvidia’s graphics processor for computer vision, deep learning and scientific calculations, and a new GPU will supercharge these applications.
The Tesla P100, which plugs into the PCI-Express slots of supercomputers, will speed up tasks like economic forecasting and weather modeling.
The GPU is also targeted at servers and will play a big role in helping self-driving cars, robots and drones identify objects.
Deep-learning systems with the GPUs in data centers will improve cloud-based image recognition, classification, natural language processing and speech recognition.
One system with Tesla P100 chips is Nvidia’s DGX-1, which can be purchased for $129,000. It has eight Tesla P100 GPUs.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
