Accelerated Computing - Solving the World's Most Important Challenges



From scientific discovery to artificial intelligence, modern data centers are key to solving some of the world’s most important challenges. NVIDIA Pascal™ powered GPUs and the NVIDIA® Tesla® accelerated computing platform give these modern data centers the power to accelerate both artificial intelligence and high performance computing workloads.

Artificial Intelligence

In the new era of artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning is shaping our world like no other computing model in history. Search engines, interactive speech, and video recommendations are just a few of the many AI-based services we use every day. From self-driving cars to more accurate medical diagnosis, the potential of intelligent machines is endless.

NVIDIA Pascal powered GPUs provide the computing engine for the new era of AI, driving incredible user experiences by accelerating deep learning applications for both training and deployment.



Training increasingly complex models faster is key to improving productivity for data scientists and delivering AI services more quickly. Servers powered by the Tesla P100 use the performance of the Pascal architecture to slash deep learning training time from months to hours.


Inference is where a trained network really goes to work. As new data points come in like images, speech, visual search and video recommendations, inference delivers answers and recommendations at the heart numerous services. A server with a single Tesla GPU can deliver 27X higher inference throughput than a single-socket CPU-only server resulting in dramatic cost savings.



High Performance Computing



HPC data centers need to support the ever-growing computing demands of scientists and researchers, while staying within a tight budget. The old approach of deploying lots of commodity compute nodes requires vast interconnect and datacenter space overhead that substantially increases costs without proportionally increasing data center performance.

The Tesla P100 for PCIe lets mixed-workload HPC data centers replace up to half a rack of commodity CPU nodes with a single accelerated node that delivers the same throughput in a broad range of HPC applications. With over 450 HPC applications accelerated—including 10 out of top 10—all HPC customers can now experience a dramatic throughput boost for their workloads, while also saving money.


Artificial Intelligence and High Performance Computing


The intersection of AI and HPC is extending the reach of science and accelerating the pace of scientific innovation like never before. AI is helping tackle previously unsolved problems by modeling the world using experimental and simulation data. AI is also helping deliver real time results with models that used to take days or months to simulate. The combination of AI and deep learning algorithms with HPC is expected to profoundly impact every aspect of human life.
