The Technology Inside NVIDIA DGX A100
NVLink & NVSwitch
Optimized Software Stack
NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU
The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU delivers unprecedented acceleration for AI, data analytics, and high-performance computing (HPC) to tackle the world’s toughest computing challenges. With third-generation NVIDIA Tensor Cores providing a huge performance boost, the A100 GPU can efficiently scale up to the thousands or, with Multi-Instance GPU, be allocated as seven smaller, dedicated instances to accelerate workloads of all sizes.
Multi-Instance GPU (MIG)
With MIG, the eight A100 GPUs in DGX A100 can be configured into as many as 56 GPU instances, each fully isolated with their own high-bandwidth memory, cache, and compute cores. This allows administrators to right-size GPUs with guaranteed quality of service (QoS) for multiple workloads.
Next-Generation NVLink and NVSwitch
The third generation of NVIDIA® NVLink™ in DGX A100 doubles the GPU-to-GPU direct bandwidth to 600 gigabytes per second (GB/s), almost 10X higher than PCIe Gen4. DGX A100 also features next-generation NVIDIA NVSwitch™, which is 2X times faster than the previous generation.
NVIDIA ConnectX-7 200Gb/s InfiniBand/Ethernet
DGX A100 features the NVIDIA ConnectX-7 InfiniBand and VPI (Infiniband or Ethernet) adapters, each running at 200 gigabits per second (Gb/s) to create a high-speed fabric for large-scale AI workloads. DGX A100 systems are also available with ConnectX-6 adapters.
Optimized Software Stack
DGX A100 integrates a tested and optimized DGX software stack, including an AI-tuned base operating system, all necessary system software, and GPU-accelerated applications, pre-trained models, and more from NGC™.
DGX A100 delivers the most robust security posture for AI deployments, with a multi-layered approach stretching across the baseboard management controller (BMC), CPU board, GPU board, self-encrypted drives, and secure boot.
