NVIDIA GH200 marks a new era in supercomputing to tackle grand challenges in materials science, climate research, drug discovery and more
DENVER, Nov. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NVIDIA today announced that JUPITER — launching a new class of supercomputers for AI-powered scientific breakthroughs — will be powered by the NVIDIA Grace Hopper™ accelerated computing architecture to deliver extreme scale computing power for AI and simulation workloads .
Owned by the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking and contracted with Eviden and ParTec, JUPITER is hosted at the Forschungszentrum Jülich facility in Germany and is being built in collaboration with NVIDIA, ParTec, Eviden and SiPearl to accelerate the creation of fundamental AI models in climate and weather research, materials science, drug discovery, industrial engineering and quantum computing.
JUPITER marks the debut of a four-wheeler NVIDIA GH200 Grace Hopper Superchip node configuration, based on Evidence’s BullSequana XH3000 liquid-cooled architecture, with a booster module comprising nearly 24,000 NVIDIA GH200 Superchips interconnected with NVIDIA Quantum-2 InfiniBand network platform. Being the world’s most powerful AI system, JUPITER can deliver over 90 exaflops of performance for AI training – 45 times more than Jülich’s previous JUWELS Booster system – and 1 exaflop for high-performance computing (HPC) applications, while consuming only 18, 2 megawatts.
The Quad GH200 features an innovative node architecture with 288 Arm Neoverse cores that can achieve 16 petaflops of AI performance with up to 2.3 terabytes of high-speed memory. Four GH200 processors are interconnected via a high-speed NVIDIA NVLink® connection.
“The JUPITER supercomputer powered by the NVIDIA GH200 and using our advanced AI software will deliver exascale AI and HPC performance to tackle the greatest scientific challenges of our time,” said Ian Buck, vice president of hyperscale and HPC at NVIDIA. “Our work with Jülich, Eviden and ParTec on this ground-breaking system will usher in a new era of AI supercomputers to advance the frontiers of science and technology.”
“At the heart of JUPITER is NVIDIA’s accelerated computing platform, making it a ground-breaking system that will revolutionize scientific research,” said Thomas Lippert, director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre. “JUPITER combines exascale AI and exascale HPC with the world’s best AI software ecosystem to take the training of basic models to new heights.”
“The Jülich Supercomputing Centre’s JUPITER system is the latest example of the significant progress Eviden is making with the NVIDIA GH200,” said Emmanuel Le Roux, senior vice president and global head of HPC, AI and quantum at Eviden. “Partnering with NVIDIA to integrate the revolutionary GH200 into the BullSequana XH3000 supercomputer will empower the research and development community to push the boundaries of simulations, address scientific challenges and accelerate unknown discoveries.”
The JUPITER supercomputer defines a new class of supercomputer by combining NVIDIA’s full stack of software solutions to solve some of the world’s toughest challenges, including in the areas of:
Climate and Weather Forecasting — Accelerates high-resolution climate and weather simulations with interactive visualization using NVIDIA Earth-2 full stack, open platform to participate in global projects such as the Earth Virtualization Engines (EVE) initiative.
Drug Discovery — Simplifies and accelerates the development and deployment of models critical to drug discovery using NVIDIA BioNeMo™ and NVIDIA Clara™ platforms.
Quantum Computing Technologies – Bringing Giant Leaps in Quantum Computing Research Through NVIDIA how much software development kits and CUDA® Quantum platform.
Industrial Technology — Transforming engineering design, development and manufacturing processes with AI-accelerated simulation and digital twins powered by NVIDIA module frame and NVIDIA Omniverse™ platform.
Installation of the JUPITER system is expected in 2024.
