Eight Tesla V100 accelerators equivalent to 800 desktop CPUs
Nvidia had quite a few announcements packed into a single GTC keynote this year, but among the more performance-oriented of them includes a refreshed DGX-1 supercomputer powered by eight Volta-based Tesla V100 GPUs.
Rent deep learning
Scan in the UK plans to offer the Nvidia DGX-1 deep learning super computer to buy or even to rent. This is a unique approach as many deep learning startups will get the chance to try the system before they buy it. And there are many universities which would love to get their hands on 170 teraFlops of deep learning performance.
