Note: This GPU is available as two feature codes, one with a CEC chip and one without a CEC chip (the one without the CEC chip has "w/o CEC" in the name).The CEC is a secondary Hardware Root of Trust (RoT) module that provides an additional layer of security, which can be used by customers who have high regulatory requirements or high security standards. NVIDIA uses a multi-layered security model and hence the protection offered by the primary Root of Trust embedded in the GPU is expected to be sufficient for most customers. The CEC defeatured products still offer Secure Boot, Secure Firmware Update, Firmware Rollback Protection, and In-Band Firmware Update Disable. Specifically, without the CEC chip, the GPU does not support Key Revocation, Firmware Attestation, and Out-Of-Band Firmware Upgrade. CEC and non-CEC GPUs of the same type of GPU can be mixed in field upgrades.

ThinkSystem NVIDIA A40 GPU

The NVIDIA A40 is a powerful data center GPU for visual computing, delivering high performance and capabilities to professionals for graphics-based workloads such as ray traced rendering, high-performance virtual workstations, simulation, 3D design, VR, and virtual production. The A40 GPU is a graphics-based virtualization solution for designers, engineers, scientists, and creatives that need this performance from anywhere in the world.

Note: This GPU is available as two feature codes, one with a CEC chip and one without a CEC chip (the one without the CEC chip has "w/o CEC" in the name).The CEC is a secondary Hardware Root of Trust (RoT) module that provides an additional layer of security, which can be used by customers who have high regulatory requirements or high security standards. NVIDIA uses a multi-layered security model and hence the protection offered by the primary Root of Trust embedded in the GPU is expected to be sufficient for most customers. The CEC defeatured products still offer Secure Boot, Secure Firmware Update, Firmware Rollback Protection, and In-Band Firmware Update Disable. Specifically, without the CEC chip, the GPU does not support Key Revocation, Firmware Attestation, and Out-Of-Band Firmware Upgrade. CEC and non-CEC GPUs of the same type of GPU can be mixed in field upgrades.

CTO only BQZS ThinkSystem NVIDIA A10 24GB PCIe Gen4 Passive GPU w/o CEC

Note: This GPU is available as two feature codes, one with a CEC chip and one without a CEC chip (the one without the CEC chip has "w/o CEC" in the name).The CEC is a secondary Hardware Root of Trust (RoT) module that provides an additional layer of security, which can be used by customers who have high regulatory requirements or high security standards. NVIDIA uses a multi-layered security model and hence the protection offered by the primary Root of Trust embedded in the GPU is expected to be sufficient for most customers. The CEC defeatured products still offer Secure Boot, Secure Firmware Update, Firmware Rollback Protection, and In-Band Firmware Update Disable. Specifically, without the CEC chip, the GPU does not support Key Revocation, Firmware Attestation, and Out-Of-Band Firmware Upgrade. CEC and non-CEC GPUs of the same type of GPU can be mixed in field upgrades.

ThinkSystem NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU

The NVIDIA V100 Tensor Core GPU is the world’s most powerful accelerator for deep learning, machine learning, high performance computing (HPC), and graphics. Powered by NVIDIA Volta, a single V100 Tensor Core GPU offers the performance of nearly 32 CPUs—enabling researchers to tackle challenges that were once unsolvable. The V100 won MLPerf, the first industry-wide AI benchmark, validating itself as the world’s most powerful, scalable, and versatile computing platform.

Introduction

The NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU Accelerator for PCIe is a dual-slot 10.5 inch PCI Express Gen3 card with a single NVIDIA Volta GV100 graphics processing unit (GPU), 16GB or 32GB HBM2 memory with native ECC support. It uses a passive heat sink for cooling. The Tesla V100 GPU supports double precision (FP64), single precision (FP32) and half precision (FP16) compute tasks, unified virtual memory and page migration engine.

Auxiliary power cables

The T4 does not require an auxiliary power cable.

ThinkSystem NVIDIA Tesla P4 GPU

The NVIDIA Tesla P4 is powered by the revolutionary NVIDIA Pascal architecture and purpose-built to boost efficiency for scale-out servers running deep learning workloads, enabling smart responsive AI-based services. It slashes inference latency by 15X in any hyperscale infrastructure and provides an incredible 60X better energy efficiency than CPUs. This unlocks a new wave of AI services previous impossible due to latency limitations.

Introduction

The NVIDIA Tesla P4 is a single-slot, low profile, 6.6 inch PCI Express Gen3 GPU Accelerator with an NVIDIA Pascal graphics processing unit (GPU). The Tesla P4 has 8 GB GDDR5 memory and a 75 W maximum power limit. The NVIDIA Tesla P4 features optimized INT8 instructions aimed at deep learning inference computations. As a result, the NVIDIA Tesla P4 delivers 22 TOPs (Tera-Operations per second) of inference performance, enabling smart responsive artificial intelligence (AI)-based services.
