NVIDIA Desktop Workstation Is As Powerful As A Data Center

NVIDIA said the DGX Station A100 has the performance of a data center without a data center

NVIDIA introduced the A100, a super-powerful GPU in May. However, the card isn’t something you can run at home. A few months after that, it made public the DGX Station A100 with four A100 GPUs, paired with either 80GB or 40GB.

The DGX Station A100 is designed for the business and science worlds where it has to work with huge datasets as well as support Ai and machine learning.

NVIDIA said the DGX Station A100 has the performance of a data center without a data center. This means users can feel free to plug it into a power outlet without the need for a cooling system dedicated to data centers.

Under the hood, it runs on a 64-core AMD CPU, NVME SSD of 7.68TB, and memory of 512GB. It’s the sole workgroup server supporting the Multi-Instance GPU of NVIDIA.

This allows multiple users to access and 28 separate GPU instances for data-parallel jobs. The station has already been adopted by Lockheed Martin, the Pacific Northwest Laboratory, BMW, and NTT Docomo for research and AI work.

However, the DGX Station A100 won’t spell an end to data centers. NVIDIA said it would be sold along with 640GB for each system and the new 80GB GPU.

Customers who have already bought DGX A100 that comes with 320GB (four 40GB A100 cards), may upgrade their hardware when the option is made available.

NVIDIA hasn’t announced the exact price tag of the hardware but you can make a good guess with $199,000 for the DGX A100 introduced in May.
