NVIDIA CEO Brings GPU Acceleration to Arm

Broadening support for GPU-accelerated supercomputing to a fast-growing new platform, NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang introduced a reference design for building GPU-accelerated Arm servers, with wide industry backing. Huang — speaking Monday at the SC19 supercomputing show in Denver — also announced that Microsoft has built NDv2, a “supersized instance” that’s the world’s largest GPU-accelerated cloud-based supercomputer — a supercomputer in the cloud — on its Azure cloud-computing platform.
