NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU

The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU delivers unprecedented acceleration for AI, data analytics, and high-performance computing (HPC) to tackle the world’s toughest computing challenges. With third-generation NVIDIA Tensor Cores providing a huge performance boost, the A100 GPU can efficiently scale up to the thousands or, with Multi-Instance GPU, be allocated as seven smaller, dedicated instances to accelerate workloads of all sizes.

NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU

Multi-Instance GPU (MIG)

With MIG, the eight A100 GPUs in DGX A100 can be configured into as many as 56 GPU instances, each fully isolated with their own high-bandwidth memory, cache, and compute cores. This allows administrators to right-size GPUs with guaranteed quality of service (QoS) for multiple workloads.

Multi Instance GPU

Next-Generation NVLink and NVSwitch

The third generation of NVIDIA® NVLink in DGX A100 doubles the GPU-to-GPU direct bandwidth to 600 gigabytes per second (GB/s), almost 10X higher than PCIe Gen4. DGX A100 also features next-generation NVIDIA NVSwitch™, which is 2X times faster than the previous generation.
