Nvidia Grace It is a processor that should fill the void in the Nvidia Server product offering. In addition to graphics accelerators and DPUs, the Greens will finally be able to offer a fully comprehensive computing platform. The name of the slide comes from Grace Hopper And it has already appeared in the context of potential future graphics chips premieres. The new unit is the use of cores A new generation of Neoverse arm Memory support LPDDR5X, With a bandwidth of more than 500 GB / s.
Its defining feature is the availability of very fast interfaces. Communication between processors at speeds above 900 GB / s, and between CPU and GPU should be up to 600 GB / s. In both cases the interface must be used NVLink 4It is more efficient than PCIE or technologies like Infinity Fabric. Detailed specification of the kernel was not provided, but it was revealed that its performance would be really good, which is confirmed by the score of over 300 in SPECrate2017_int_base. Similar values are achieved with second generation Epyc chips.
Nvidia Grace in the alpine supercomputer
Grace processors will hit the market in 2023, so the Greens still have some time to make improvements and fixes. Although the product isn’t on sale, they’re really keen on it – Grace will go for the Alps supercomputer, which will be shown. Up to 20 ExaFLOPS Performance in international system accounts. The unit will also operate the platform created by Los Alamos National Laboratory, which is working closely with Nvidia on new projects.
