Another advanced AI system that leverages Samsung tech is Nvidia’s HBM2-equipped DGX A100. This system, which utilizes 320GB of Samsung’s new 2.4Gbps HBM2, consolidates the power of a 5-petaflop data center onto a single platform. The very first DGX A100 unit began operation at the Argonne National Laboratory in May of 2020 and is being used to conduct COVID-19 research.
Other Nvidia GPUs incorporating Samsung tech are also being used at Oxford Nanopore Technologies in the UK, where they are helping researchers sequence entire virus genomes in just 7 hours, at Plotly for real-time infection rate analysis, and at the National Institutes of Health for COVID-19 classification and reconstruction of virus spike protein structures.
