GIGABYTE's 4U 10x NVIDIA A100 New G492 Servers Announced

(www.anandtech.com)

One of the interesting elements about NVIDIA's A100 card is the potential compute density offered, especially for AI applications. There is set to be a strong rush to enable high-density AI platforms that can take advantage of all the new features that A100 offers in the PCIe form factor, and GIGABYTE was the first in my inbox with news of its new G492 server systems, built to take up to 10 new A100 accelerators. These machines are built on AMD EPYC, which allows for PCIe Gen4 support, as well as offering GPU-to-GPU direct access, direct transfers, and GPUDirect RDMA.

One of these would likely start at somewhere around $60K USD, but you could mine all the BitCoin with the raw compute offered here … 😮
