NVIDIA today unveiled NVIDIA DGX A100, the third generation of the world’s most advanced AI system, delivering 5 petaflops of AI performance and consolidating the power and capabilities of an entire data centre into a single flexible platform for the first time.
The NVIDIA DGX A100 is immediately available and has already begun to ship worldwide. The first DGX A100 was delivered to the Argonne National Laboratory, a science and engineering research national laboratory, operated by UChicago Argonne LLC. It will use AI clusters and the extraordinary computational power delivered by the NVIDIA DGX A100 to better understand COVID-19 and how to develop a vaccination against it.

NVIDIA DGX A100 is the ultimate instrument for advancing AI. NVIDIA DGX is the first AI system built for the end-to-end machine learning workflow: from data analytics to training to inference. And with the giant performance leap of the new DGX, machine learning engineers can stay ahead of the exponentially growing size of AI models and data.
Features of NVIDIA DGX A100
DGX A100 systems integrate eight of the new NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs, providing 320 GB of memory for training the largest AI datasets, and the latest high-speed NVIDIA Mellanox HDR 200 Gb/s interconnects.
Multiple smaller workloads can be accelerated by partitioning the DGX A100 into as many as 56 instances per system. Combining these capabilities enables enterprises to optimize computing power and resources on demand to accelerate diverse workloads, including data analytics, training and inference, on a single, fully integrated, software-defined platform.
