Customers can use Supermicro Servers for Graphics and Simulation Foundation to build and run metaverse applications at scale— Systems support up to 8 NVIDIA L40 GPUs, ConnectX®-7 SmartNICs and current and future CPU processors from Intel and AMD
SAN JOSE, California., September 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Super Micro Computers, Inc. (SMCI)a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, GPUs, networking solutions and green computing technology, continues to extend its leadership in accelerated computing infrastructure by being the first to market with second-generation NVIDIA® OVX™ systems.
The Supermicro OVX server is based on the new L40 GPU in a 4U 8 GPU server with two Intel CPUs, 32 DIMMs, 8 TB of memory, 12 PCI-E slots and up to 24 drive bays. Other servers using the L40 GPU include a range of systems from Supermicro: the 4U 4GPU rackmount/workstation, the 2U with up to 6GPUs, the 1U 4GPU and the multi-node 2U 2Node system. These systems support all NVIDIA L40 PCI-E based GPUs.
“Supermicro leads the industry again by being first to market with the second generation OVX server,” he said Karl Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “Our most demanding customers require the integration of the fastest CPUs and GPUs for immersive, low-latency experiences. Our OVX server is designed to build and run the most complex Omniverse Enterprise applications at scale.”
These new servers deliver the breakthrough graphics, AI, and networking performance needed to build and run immersive 3D virtual worlds. Purpose-built for building and managing data center-scale NVIDIA Omniverse™ Enterprise applications, Supermicro OVX systems combine the most advanced NVIDIA RTX-accelerated graphics and AI capabilities with fast, secure enterprise-class networking and management.
The NVIDIA L40 GPUs will be integrated into the current generation from Supermicro, and the next generations of systems will be based on Intel and AMD platforms. Next-generation Supermicro systems utilizing the L40 GPU include the 4U 8GPU server, 4U 4GPU server, and 2U and 1U servers and workstations. Each Supermicro OVX server is powered by up to eight NVIDIA® L40 GPUs that harness the power of the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture to accelerate Omniverse workloads. These systems combine GPUs with three NVIDIA® ConnectX®-7 SmartNICs, high-performance CPUs and NVMe storage in a unified platform and will be available soon. The next generation of AI applications will require a computing platform optimized for creating graphically rich and physically accurate virtual worlds. Supermicro OVX systems are ideal to support this ongoing industry evolution.
“Supermicro OVX servers are computing systems purpose-built to build and run data center-scale NVIDIA Omniverse applications,” he said Kevin Connors, Vice President of OEM Accounts at NVIDIA. “This second generation Supermicro OVX server is optimized to support the creation and operation of immersive, photorealistic 3D models, simulations and digital twins.”
