From scientific discovery to artificial intelligence, modern HPC data centers are solving some of the greatest challenges facing the world today in bioinformatics, drug discovery, and high-energy physics.
With traditional CPUs no longer delivering the same performance gains, the path forward for HPC data centers is GPU-accelerated computing. NVIDIA® Tesla® P100, powered by NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture, is the computational engine driving the AI revolution and enabling HPC breakthroughs.
HPC and hyperscale data centers need to support the ever-growing demands of data scientists and researchers while staying within a tight budget. The old approach of deploying lots of commodity compute nodes requires vast interconnect overhead that substantially increases costs without proportionally increasing data center performance.
The NVIDIA Tesla P100 accelerator is the world’s most powerful data center GPU ever built, designed to boost throughput and save money for HPC and hyperscale data centers. Powered by the brand new NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture, Tesla P100 enables a single node to replace up to half-rack of commodity CPU nodes by delivering lightning-fast performance in a broad range of HPC applications.
