NVIDIA’s Cambridge-1 has just been launched, and becomes the United Kingdom’s most powerful supercomputer. It will enable leading scientists and healthcare officials to use the powerful combination of artificial intelligence and simulation to accelerate the digital biology revolution as well as strengthen the country’s world-leading life sciences industry. Cambridge-1 utilizes optimized NVIDIA Clara and AI frameworks to take advantage of the entire system for large-scale research. Read more for a video and additional information.
The supercomputer boasts 80 DGX A100 systems integrating NVIDIA A100 GPUs, BlueField-2 DPUs and NVIDIA HDR InfiniBand networking, which means that it’s an NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD that delivers more than 400 petaflops of AI performance and 8 petaflops of Linpack performance. This is also the first supercomputer that NVIDIA has dedicated to advancing industry-specific research in the U.K.
