At these days’s GTC convention keynote, Nvidia introduced that its H100 Tensor Core GPU is in complete manufacturing and that tech companions comparable to Dell, Lenovo, Cisco, Atos, Fujitsu, GIGABYTE, Hewlett-Packard Endeavor, and Supermicro will start transport merchandise constructed across the H100 subsequent month.
The H100, a part of the “Hopper” structure, is essentially the most robust AI-focused GPU Nvidia has ever made, surpassing its earlier high-end chip, the A100. The H100 comprises 80 billion transistors and a different “Transformer Engine” to boost up gadget finding out duties. It additionally helps Nvidia NVLink, which hyperlinks GPUs in combination to multiply efficiency.
In line with the Nvidia press liberate, the H100 additionally reportedly delivers potency advantages, providing the similar efficiency because the A100 with 3.5 instances higher power potency, three times lower price of possession, the use of 5 instances fewer server nodes.
Nvidia expects the H100 chip for use in quite a lot of commercial, well being care, supercomputer, and cloud programs starting from massive language fashions, drug discovery, recommender programs, conversational AI, and extra. Going through the monitor file of the sooner A100 “Ampere” structure GPU, analysts imagine the H100 chip will most likely have a large have an effect on within the AI house. It is going to additionally very most likely play a job within the subsequent technology of symbol synthesis fashions.
Nvidia introduced that over 50 H100-based server fashions from other firms will probably be in the marketplace through the tip of the yr. And Nvidia itself will start integrating the H100 into its Nvidia DGX H100 endeavor programs, which pack 8 H100 chips and ship 32 petaflops of efficiency.
Information that H100 is in complete manufacturing and transport quickly could also be observed as a aid to Nvidia buyers. The company’s inventory had dropped in early September after it introduced that the USA govt used to be striking restrictions on exports of the H100 to China, which used to be additionally the place the chip used to be being in part evolved and is being manufactured. The USA allowed H100 building to renew, however the export restrictions to China and Russia are nonetheless in position.
