Why Choose HGX NVIDIA H100 GPU?
The NVIDIA HGX H100 GPU is a powerful and versatile computing platform that can accelerate a wide range of workloads, from small enterprise applications to exascale HPC simulations to trillion-parameter AI models. It is a go-to choice for a variety of reasons, including its:
1. Transformer Engine
The H100 GPU features a Transformer Engine with FP8 precision, providing up to 4X faster training for large language models, such as GPT-3 175B.
2. NVLink Switch System:
The NVLink Switch System allows quick scaling of multi-GPU input/output (IO) across different servers, reaching speeds of up to 900 gigabytes per second. It can support clusters of up to 256 H100 GPUs, providing 9 times the bandwidth of InfiniBand HDR.This makes it possible to create incredibly powerful AI and HPC clusters that can accelerate a wide range of workloads.
3. Confidential Computing and DPX Instructions:
HGX H100 offers confidential computing capabilities and incorporates DPX instructions, which accelerate dynamic programming algorithms by 7X. This combination ensures data security and real-time processing for applications like DNA sequence alignment and protein structure prediction.
4. Multi-Instance GPU (MIG)
The availability of MIG allows multiple users or workloads to run concurrently on a single GPU, enhancing resource sharing and isolation, which is particularly valuable in multi-tenant cloud environments.
5. NVIDIA NGC container registry
The HGX H100 comes with access to the NVIDIA NGC container registry, which provides a wide range of pre-optimized and certified AI and HPC containers. This makes it easy to deploy and run AI and HPC workloads on the HGX H100.
