back to article A peek into Gigabyte's GPU Arm for AI, HPC shops

Arm-based servers continue to gain momentum with Gigabyte Technology introducing a system based on Ampere's Altra processors paired with Nvidia A100 GPUs, aimed at demanding workloads such as AI training and high-performance compute (HPC) applications. The G492-PD0 runs either an Ampere Altra or Altra Max processor, the latter …
