NVIDIA’s (NASDAQ: NVDA) invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world.
In 2006, the creation of the CUDA programming model and Tesla GPU platform opened up the parallel-processing capabilities of the GPU to general-purpose computing. A powerful new approach to computing was born.

DGX-1 delivers 4X faster training speed than other GPU-based systems by using the NVIDIA GPU Cloud Deep Learning Stack with optimized versions of today’s most popular frameworks.
AI is now paramount in every industry that high performance computing (HPC) serves, from enterprise, and life sciences to Defense (DoD), Higher Education and the Federal Government. In fact, it is the future of every vertical market and the engine of AI is the NVIDIA GPU computing platform.
NVIDIA Volta is the new driving force behind artificial intelligence. Volta is fueling breakthroughs in every industry. Humanity’s moonshots like eradicating cancer, intelligent customer experiences, and self-driving vehicles are within reach of this next era of AI.
Equipped with 640 Tensor Cores, Volta delivers over 100 Teraflops per second (TFLOPS) of deep learning performance, over a 5X increase compared to prior generation NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture. Given its 21 billion transistors, Volta is the most powerful GPU architecture the world has ever seen. It pairs NVIDIA® CUDA® and Tensor Cores to deliver the performance of an AI supercomputer in a GPU.
Volta uses next generation revolutionary NVIDIA NVLink™ high-speed interconnect technology which delivers 2X the throughput, compared to the previous generation of NVLink. This enables more advanced model and data parallel approaches for strong scaling to achieve the absolute highest application performance.
Tesla V100 GPU
At the 2018 GPU Technology Conference (GTC18), it was announced that the memory capacity of the NVIDIA® Tesla® V100 GPU – widely adopted by the world’s leading researchers – was doubled to handle the most memory-intensive deep learning and high performance computing workloads.
Now equipped with 32GB of memory, Tesla V100 GPUs will help data scientists train deeper and larger deep learning models that are more accurate than ever. They can also improve the performance of memory-constrained HPC applications by up to 50 percent compared with the previous 16GB version.
