GPU Computing Resources
June 21, 2018
When it comes to making computing electronics for end users, OEMs and so forth, PNY has global creds. If you're not using one of their PREVAILPRO mobile workstations right now, you're likely using something they made anyway.
PNY also collaborates with all the names you know to make products available and to make them shine. NVIDIA is one example, and PNY has assembled a landing page with what you need to know about the NVIDIA Quadro GV100 GPU (graphics processing unit). The GV100 is a game-changer for workstations and HPC (high-performance computing). PNY's GV100 landing page pulls together and adds value to the details. It's well done.
Remember, the GV100 is currently the only Quadro-class GPU leveraging NVIDIA’s next-generation Volta architecture. NVIDIA offers libraries, frameworks and software development kits to help developers create Volta-optimized and tuned applications. In short, Volta has the resources and brawn for the 3D design, engineering, manufacturing and scientific jobs you really can't toss at your workstation today without dumbing down your objectives.
In hands-on terms: The GV100 is for sophisticated AI (artificial intelligence), deep and machine learning, generative design, photorealistic simulation, real-time ray tracing, visualization and professional VR (virtual reality) applications. Compute-intensive ANSYS or Abaqus simulations should run with alacrity. Quickly creating photorealistic images or animations directly from CAD designs should become routine.
Three keys here. One, the GV100 has a minimum of 32GB of scalable HBM2 (high-bandwidth, second-generation) memory. Bandwidth pops at 870GB per second.
Two, it has 5,120 NVIDIA CUDA parallel-processing cores and 640 Tensor Cores. Tensor cores are purpose-built for deep learning matrix arithmetic and AI.
Three, mixed-precision performance. In spec speak, that's 7.4 TFLOPS (1 trillion floating-point operations per second) double-precision and 14.8 TFLOPS single-precision performance plus 118.5 TFLOPS of tensor operation.
When you land on PNY's GV100 landing page, first watch the short video. Next, read down until you see the stand-alone GV100 pic. Hover your mouse over it for some quick specs. Then click the green title bar under the image. This brings up the mother lode of details on the GV100—pictures, in-depth technical details, spec lists, how to contact PNY for specific questions, etc. Name it, it's there.
PNY's NVIDIA GV100 landing page is thorough, well-designed and easy to navigate. The NVIDIA Quadro GV100 GPU with its Volta-optimized performance is about to change how you work. Hit today's link and learn about tomorrow's workflow. Well worth it.
Thanks, Pal. – Lockwood
