Nvidia’s DGX A100 System Packs a Record Five petaFLOPS of Power

At its virtual GPU Technology Conference, Nvidia launched its new Ampere graphics architecture — and with it, the most powerful GPU ever made: The DGX A100. It’s the largest 7nm chip ever made, offering 5 petaFLOPS in a single node and the ability to handle 1.5 TB of data per second.

Of course, unless you’re doing data science or cloud computing, this GPU isn’t for you. The purpose of the DGX A100 is to accelerate hyperscale computing in data centers alongside servers. In fact, the United States Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory is among the first customers of the DGX A100. It will leverage this supercomputer’s advanced artificial intelligence capabilities to better understand and fight COVID-19.

Nvida was co-founded by UF’s Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering alumnus Chris Malachowsky, a 2019 Florida Inventors Hall of Fame Inductee.
