NVIDIA’s Next-Generation Architecture Enters Supercomputers

The NVIDIA Turing architecture brings a new ray tracing, which is a major revolution in the history of GPUs. After the iteration of two generations of products, subsequently, the next-generation Ampere architecture is also on the horizon. The earliest is expected to be GTC graphics in March Announced at the conference.

Indiana University in the United States will create a new supercomputer ” Big Red 200 ” on the 200th anniversary of the establishment of the university. It will deploy the next-generation architecture-based NVIDIA GPU!


This supercomputing will be built in two phases. The first phase has been launched and contains 672 dual-way nodes. The processor is AMD’s latest flagship Xiaolong 7742, 64 cores and 128 threads. The second phase will join NVIDIA’s next-generation GPU.

In fact, Indiana University originally planned to use NVIDIA ’s existing high-performance computing GPU Tesla V100, Volta (Volt) architecture. Obviously, NVIDIA ’s new architecture has a fatal appeal, and upgrading the GPU is exactly the reason why the project became the construction of two phases.

The Big Red 200 supercomputing was originally planned to have a computing performance of 5.9PFlops (5.9 petaflops per second). However, it can reach 8PFlops after upgrading the next-generation NVIDIA GPU

Of course, the improvement comparison object mentioned here is Tesla V100, and it definitely refers to the change in professional computing performance. Although the magnitude is still amazing. How come, there must be about 50% when it comes to the game card. Not to mention, there have been rumors that the performance of the amp architecture will increase by 50%. In addition, the energy efficiency will be twice that of Turing.
