The Huawei Atlas AI computing platform, based on Huawei self-developed Ascend series AI chips, includes a variety of product forms such as AI accelerator module, AI accelerator card, AI edge station and AI server, which meets the needs of cloud, edge and terminal all-scenario AI deployment.
When the Swarm64 software is installed on a server containing the accelerator card, it programs a pre-built accelerator image and executes complex processing functionality at very high bandwidth and excellent power efficiency.
The SDP was implemented and verified using a full Cadence tool flow in TSMC's 7nm FinFET process technology, the industry's first and leading 7nm process technology in volume production, and provides connectivity to Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs over the CCIX chip-to-chip coherent interconnect protocol via the Xilinx Alveo U280 CCIX accelerator card. For customers with intense compute workloads, CCIX offers a significant accelerator usability improvement as well as improved data center performance/efficiency, lowering the barrier to entry into existing server infrastructure systems and improving the total cost of ownership (TCO) of acceleration systems.
In addition, Supermicro's All-Flash 1U Ultra system (SYS-1029U-TN10RT) with proven low latency and high efficiency, when loaded with an NVIDIA Tesla V100 accelerator card, provides a very well balanced solution in terms of density, performance and efficiency for many AI, HPC and graphics applications.
