Supermicro to Add NVIDIA Grace CPU Superchip-Based Servers to the Industry-Leading Portfolio for HPC, Data Analytics, and Cloud Gaming Applications
COMPUTEX 2022 Virtual, San Jose, Calif., May 23, 2022 -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking, and green computing technology, will deploy the NVIDIA Grace CPU Superchip in a wide range of servers optimized for AI, HPC, data analytics, digital twins, and compute-intensive applications. As artificial intelligence (AI) technologies transcend multiple industries, Supermicro servers will use the NVIDIA Grace CPU Superchip to enable a broader range of developers and IT administrators to take advantage of this new technology. Supermicro servers will be optimized for energy efficiency, reducing operating costs, which will become the norm for all data centers. In addition, with a memory bandwidth of up to 1 TB/second, applications will not be limited by communication speeds. Initially, a limited number of servers will be available, starting with a 2U 2 Node portfolio and then followed by product line expansion.
"Supermicro is developing new server platforms incorporating the NVIDIA Grace CPU Superchip," said Charles Liang, president, and CEO of Supermicro. "Leveraging our innovative Building Block Solutions®, we plan to offer a wide range of servers optimized for specific workloads. Based on our green computing DNA, Supermicro offers the most advanced energy-efficient servers available to meet demanding data center requirements. Our first-to-market new systems can quickly address the rapidly expanding AI, HPC, and data analytics markets."
"NVIDIA has been working with Supermicro to quickly bring innovative products to market," said Paresh Kharya, senior director of accelerated computing at NVIDIA. "The release of Supermicro's servers with NVIDIA Grace CPU Superchips will optimize a wide variety of workloads to meet the needs of modern data centers."
