NVIDIA has announced a significant advancement in high-performance computing, introducing nine new supercomputers worldwide utilizing NVIDIA Grace Hopper Superchips. These systems collectively deliver a staggering 200 exaflops of AI processing power, accelerating scientific research and discovery.

NVIDIA Grace Hopper

Among the newly launched supercomputers are EXA1-HE in France, Helios in Poland, Alps in Switzerland, JUPITER in Germany, DeltaAI in the U.S., and Miyabi in Japan. Notably, the EXA1-HE supercomputer, developed by CEA and Eviden, utilizes Eviden’s BullSequana XH3000 technology and incorporates 477 compute nodes based on Grace Hopper.

According to Ian Buck, NVIDIA’s vice president of hyperscale and HPC, AI is revolutionizing various fields such as climate change research and drug discovery, with NVIDIA Grace Hopper-powered systems proving instrumental in enhancing energy efficiency.

Furthermore, the move towards building more efficient AI-based supercomputers reflects a global recognition of the importance of sovereign AI. Centers such as Isambard-AI in the U.K., and those in the U.S. at Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Texas Advanced Computing Center, are adopting NVIDIA Arm-based supercomputers, incorporating Grace CPU Superchips and the Grace Hopper platform.

The GH200, powered by Arm-based NVIDIA Grace CPU and NVIDIA Hopper GPU architectures, is facilitating scientific supercomputing globally, with many centers aiming to transition from installation to practical applications in a matter of months. Isambard-AI, developed by the University of Bristol, stands out for its efficiency, leveraging HPE Cray EX2500 supercomputer with NVIDIA GH200 Superchips. The addition of 5,280 Grace Hopper Superchips this summer is expected to boost performance significantly.

Simon McIntosh-Smith, a professor at the University of Bristol, emphasizes that Isambard-AI positions the U.K. as a leader in AI, with the potential to drive innovation in various fields such as data analytics, drug discovery, and climate research.

NVIDIA’s accelerated computing platform, comprising various technologies including Hopper architecture-based GPUs, Grace CPU Superchips, and networking solutions, is at the forefront of accelerating scientific discovery worldwide.
