According to recent sources, Nvidia has announced a series of collaborations that combine NVIDIA GPUs and software with Arm®-based CPUs. the team green is looking to extend the benefits of Arm’s flexible, energy-efficient architecture to computing workloads.
Nvidia proceeded with combining AWS Graviton2-based Amazon EC2 instances with NVIDIA GPUs. Also there many collaborations including the development of scientific and AI applications with a new HPC Developer Kit along with boosting video analytics and security features at the edge and creating a new class of Arm-based PCs with NVIDIA RTX™ GPUs.
“Arm’s energy efficiency and IP business model have made it the world’s most popular CPU. Arm’s ecosystem of technology companies from around the world are ready to take Arm-based products into new markets like cloud, supercomputing, PC, and autonomous systems. With the new partnerships announced today, we’re taking important steps to expand the Arm ecosystem beyond mobile and embedded.”
Recently, NVIDIA and AWS have announced that they are working together to deploy GPU-accelerated Arm-based instances in the cloud. This will offer a range of benefits including lower cost, support for richer game-streaming experiences, and greater performance for Arm-based workloads.
Coming to the NVIDIA Arm HPC Developer Kit is being developed to support scientific computing amid the growing need for energy-efficient supercomputers and data centers. The kit will include an Ampere® Altra® CPU, with 80 Arm Neoverse cores running up to 3.3GHz; dual NVIDIA A100 GPUs, as well as two NVIDIA Bluefield-2® DPUs.
“The powerful combination of NVIDIA GPU and DPU accelerators with cloud-native Ampere Altra processors offers our customers leading performance, scalability, instance, and core density, all while predictably executing very demanding data center and cloud workloads such as cloud gaming, HPC, scientific computing, artificial intelligence, and networking. NVIDIA’s Arm HPC Developer Kit is an easily accessible way to test drive this world-class combination for the most challenging workloads.”
NVIDIA also reported increasing its collaboration with Marvell to combine OCTEON® DPUs with GPUs. It plans to accelerate cloud, enterprise, carrier, and edge applications using collaboration.
“Marvell’s Arm-based OCTEON DPU platform has a long, proven track record of delivering industry-leading solutions to address the growing security, networking, and storage requirements of cloud data centers. We’re thrilled to expand our multi-year relationship with NVIDIA to combine our OCTEON DPUs with NVIDIA GPUs to accelerate video analytics and cybersecurity solutions for emerging edge to cloud applications.”
