Supermicro CEO and President Charles Liang said that supporting Nvida A100s lets customers to choose the highest performing and most optimised server based on their specific applications.
"Designed to accelerate a vast range of compute-intensive applications, our new systems with PCIe Gen 4 deliver fully optimised support for the new Nvida A100 to boost performance up to 20x on some accelerated workloads."
Supermicro's 4U A+ GPU system supports up to eight Nvida A100 PCIe GPUs via direct-attach PCI-E 4.0 x16 CPU-to-GPU lanes without any PCI-E switch for the lowest latency and highest bandwidth to deliver maximum acceleration.
The system also supports up to two additional high-performance PCI-E 4.0 expansion slots for a variety of uses, including high-performance networking connectivity up to 200Gb/s. An additional AIOM slot supports a Supermicro AIOM card or an OCP NIC 3.0 card.
These systems will also be NGC-Ready, providing customers a seamless way to develop and deploy their AI workloads at scale. NGC-Ready systems are validated for functionality and performance for the AI stack from NVIDIA 's NGC registry.
