Smallest, has NV100 and Power9 combo
It’s been a while since China had the fastest supercomputer and all thathas just changed with the launch of US government owned Summit computer that is currently the world’s most powerful and smartest artificial intelligence (AI) supercomputer.
Software optimizations to blame
There's an unexpected twist in the tangled tale as Intel managed to prove that for machine translation, which uses RNNs, the Intel Xeon Scalable processor outperforms NVidia V100 based systems by four times.
Volta graphics, eight custom cores for automotive
Nvidia CEO announced that Drive Xavier world's first autonomous machine processor is up and running as the silicon got back from the Fab two weeks ago, and of course, it works flawlessly.
Fully enabled GV100 Volta GPU for US $2,999
