NVIDIA Announces Grace Hopper Super Chips in Full Production

NVIDIA announces their GH200 Grace Hopper Superchip is in full production, set to power systems coming online worldwide to run complex AI and HPC workloads. These GH200-powered systems join more than 400 system configurations powered by different combinations of NVIDIA’s latest CPU, GPU and DPU architectures which includes NVIDIA Grace, NVIDIA Hopper, Ada Lovelace and BlueField. They were created to help meet the surging demand for generative AI.

At his COMPUTEX Keynote. founder and CEO Jensen Huang revealed new systems, partners and additional details surrounding the GH200 Grace Hopper Superchip, which brings together the Arm-based Grace CPU and Hopper GPU architectures using NVLink-C2C interconnect technology. It delivers up to 900GB/s total bandwidth — 7x higher bandwidth than the standard PCIe Gen5 lanes found in traditional accelerated systems, providing incredible compute capability to address the most demanding generative AI and HPC applications.

“Generative AI is rapidly transforming businesses, unlocking new opportunities and accelerating discovery in healthcare, finance, business services and many more industries,” said Ian Buck, vice president of accelerated computing at NVIDIA. “With Grace Hopper Superchips in full production, manufacturers worldwide will soon provide the accelerated infrastructure enterprises need to build and deploy generative AI applications that leverage their unique proprietary data.”

Global hyperscalers and supercomputing centers in Europe and the U.S. are among several customers that will have access to GH200-powered systems.

Taiwan manufacturers are among the many system manufacturers worldwide bringing to market a wide variety of systems powered by different combinations of accelerators and processors. These include AAEON, Advantech, Aetina, ASRock Rack, ASUS, GIGABYTE, Ingrasys, Inventec, Pegatron, QCT, Tyan, Wistron and Wiwynn. They were all mentionedin Huang’s keynote address as key partners.

Additionally, global server manufacturers Cisco, Dell Technologies, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Lenovo, Supermicro and Eviden, an Atos company, offer a broad array of NVIDIA-accelerated systems.

Cloud partners for H100 include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cirrascale, CoreWeave, Google Cloud, Lambda, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Paperspace and Vultr.

L4 GPUs are generally available on Google Cloud.

Full-Stack Computing Accelerated by NVIDIA

The coming portfolio of systems accelerated by the Grace, Hopper and Ada Lovelace architectures provides broad support for the NVIDIA software stack, which includes NVIDIA AI, the NVIDIA Omniverse platform and NVIDIA RTX technology.

NVIDIA AI Enterprise, the software layer of the NVIDIA AI platform, offers over 100 frameworks, pretrained models and development tools to streamline development and deployment of production AI, including generative AI, computer vision and speech AI.

The Omniverse development platform for building and operating metaverse applications enables individuals and teams to work across multiple software suites and collaborate in real time in a shared environment. The platform is based on the Universal Scene Description framework, an open, extensible 3D language for virtual worlds.

The RTX platform fuses ray tracing, deep learning and rasterization to fundamentally transform the creative process for content creators and developers with support for industry-leading tools and APIs. Applications built on the RTX platform bring the power of real-time photorealistic rendering and AI-enhanced graphics, video and image processing to enable millions of designers and artists to create their best work.

Systems with GH200 Grace Hopper Superchips are expected to be available beginning later this year.
