The NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Core GPU for PCIe (40GB or 80GB version) delivers unprecedented acceleration at every scale to power the world’s highest performing elastic data centers for AI, data analytics, and HPC. Powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, NVIDIA A100 is the engine of the NVIDIA data center platform, providing up to 20x higher performance over the prior generation, and can be uniquely partitioned into seven GPU instances to dynamically adjust to shifting demands. The NVIDIA A100 (40GB or 80GB) delivers the world’s fastest memory bandwidth at over 2 terabytes per second (TB/s) to run the largest models and datasets.

Today, we live in a data-centric world where information is constantly generated and transported from devices to data centers for storage and analysis. Technologies such as 5G networking and AI at the Edge further accelerate data generation and big data analytic needs. The sheer volume of data needing to be processed makes NVIDIA GPUs like the NVIDIA A100 the de-facto choice for processing enormous and exponentiating datasets. Modern data centers are composed of hundreds, if not thousands of NVIDIA® GPUs, just to meet demand for generating actionable insights quickly from massive amounts of raw data.
To maximize the GPU utilization, data center operators must ensure data flows rapidly from storage to individual GPUs across the entire data center, which prevents GPUs from idly waiting for data to arrive. As GPU performance improves and GPU memory size (frame buffer) also expands, the demand for faster network throughput becomes mandatory as well. Today, up to 400 gigabits per second (400 Gb/s) transfer rates in both Ethernet and InfiniBand are available. At this speed, traditional methods of CPU-based data packet processing simply consume too much system resources and start to impact overall system performance. NVIDIA SmartNIC and Data Processing Unit, (DPU) solutions have dedicated data processors to offload data processing from CPUs, improving data availability and supporting advanced new technologies like GPUDirect that measurably boost overall data center processing capabilities.
PNY is excited to be an NVIDIA Networking product partner carrying and supporting both NVIDIA Ethernet and InfiniBand product categories, including NVIDIA ConnectX SmartNICs, NVIDIA BlueField DPUs, associated accessories, and NVIDIA Spectrum Network Switches, and LinkX transceivers and cables.
At GTC 2021, NVIDIA went beyond its traditional GPU offerings by unveiling a new data center CPU, a next generation data processing unit, new DGX systems for AI computing, and new Ampere-architecture based GPU boards for professional workstations and the data center along with the upcoming general availability of NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise.
