Info

We are very proud to announce the world's first and only Nvidia GH200 Grace-Hopper Superchip-powered supercomputers in quiet, handy and beautiful desktop form factors. Our benchmarks show that they are currently by far the fastest AI and also the fastest ARM desktop PCs in the world. If you are looking for a workstation for inferencing and fine-tuning of insanely huge LLMs, we got you covered.

Example use case 1: Inferencing Llama-3 405B
  • Download: https://ai.meta.com/blog/meta-llama-3/
  • Llama-3 405B (to be released) will be the most powerful open-source model by far.
  • Llama-3 405B with 8bit quantization needs at least 400GB of memory to swiftly run inference! Luckily, GH200 has a minimum of 576GB.
  • Example use case 2: Fine-tuning Llama-3 405B with PyTorch FSDP and Q-Lora
  • Tutorial: https://www.philschmid.de/fsdp-qlora-llama3
  • Models need to be fine-tuned on your data to unlock the full potential of the model. But efficiently fine-tuning bigger models like Llama 3 405B remained a challenge until now. This blog post walks you through how to fine-tune Llama 3 using PyTorch FSDP and Q-Lora with the help of Hugging Face TRL, Transformers, peft & datasets.
  • Fine-tuning big models within a reasonable time requires special and beefy hardware! Luckily, GH200 is ideal for this task.
  • Example use case 3: Generate videos with Open-Sora
  • Download: https://github.com/hpcaitech/Open-Sora/
  • Open-Sora is democratizing efficient video production for all.
  • Generating videos with Open-Sora requires special and beefy hardware! Luckily, GH200 is ideal for this task.
  • Why should you buy your own hardware?
  • "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy?" No!!! Never should you bow to Satan and rent stuff that you can own. In other areas, renting stuff that you can own is very uncool and uncommon. Or would you prefer to rent "your" car instead of owning it? Most people prefer to own their car, because it's much cheaper, it's an asset that has value and it makes the owner proud and happy. The same is true for compute infrastructure.
  • Even more so, because data and compute infrastructure are of great value and importance and are preferably kept on premises, not only for privacy reasons but also to keep control and mitigate risks. If somebody else has your data and your compute infrastructure you are in big trouble.
  • Speed, latency and ease-of-use are also much better when you have direct physical access to your stuff.
  • With respect to AI and specifically LLMs there is another very important aspect. The first thing big tech taught their closed-source LLMs was to be "politically correct" (lie) and implement guardrails, "safety" and censorship to such an extent that the usefulness of these LLMs is severely limited. Luckily, the (open-source) tools are out there to build and tune AI that is really intelligent and really useful. But first, you need your own hardware to run it on.

  • What are the main benefits of GH200 Grace-Hopper?
  • Its performance in every regard is almost unreal (up to 284 times faster than x86).
  • Much cheaper than alternative systems with the same amount of memory.
  • It has enough memory to run the biggest LLMs currently available.
  • Optimized for memory-intensive inference and HPC performance.
  • Ideal for AI, especially inferencing and fine-tuning of LLMs.
  • Connect display and keyboard, and you are ready to go.
  • Ideal for HPC applications like, e.g. vector databases.
  • You can use it as a server or a desktop/workstation.
  • Privacy and independence from cloud providers.
  • Easily customizable, upgradable and repairable.
  • Cheaper and much faster than cloud providers.
  • Flexibility and the possibility of offline use.
  • Perfect for edge AI ML GPT LLM and HPC.
  • Gigantic amounts of coherent memory.
  • No special infrastructure is needed.
  • The lowest possible latency.
  • It is very power-efficient.
  • It is easy to transport.
  • CUDA enabled.
  • It is very quiet.
  • It is beautiful.
  • Runs Linux.
  • What is the difference to alternative systems with the same amount of memory?
  • Compared to a 8x Nvidia H100 system, GH200 costs 5x less, consumes 10x less energy and has very roughly the same performance.
  • Compared to a 8x Nvidia A100 system, GH200 costs 3x less, consumes 5x less energy and has at least the same performance.
  • Compared to a 4x AMD Mi300X system, GH200 costs 3x less, consumes 4x less energy and has roughly the same performance.
  • Compared to a 4x AMD Mi300A system (which has only 512 GB memory, more is not possible because the maximum number of scale-up infinity links is 4), GH200 costs significantly less, consumes 3x less energy and has at least the same performance.
  • Compared to a 8x Nvidia RTX A6000 Ada system which has significantly less memory (only 384GB), GH200 costs significantly less, consumes 3x less energy and has a higher performance.
  • Compared to a 8x AMD Radeon PRO W7900 system which has significantly less memory (only 384GB), GH200 costs the same, consumes 3x less energy and has a higher performance.

  • The main difference between GH200 and alternative systems is that with GH200, the GPU is connected to the CPU via a 900 GB/s NVLink vs. 128 GB/s PCIe gen5 used by traditional systems. Furthermore, multiple superchips can be connected via 900 GB/s NVLink vs. orders of magnitude slower network connections used by traditional systems. Since these are the main bottlenecks, GH200's high-speed connections directly translate to much higher performance compared to traditional architectures.

    The alternative systems mentioned above also have one thing in common: they are not available in standard desktop form factors, like our GH200 systems are.

    What is the difference to 19-inch server models?
  • Form factor: 19-inch servers have a very distinct form factor. They are of low height and are very long, e.g. 438 x 87.5 x 900mm (17.24" x 3.44" x 35.43"). This makes them rather unsuitable to place them anywhere else than in a 19-inch rack. Our GH200 and Grace tower models have desktop form factors: 244 x 567 x 523 mm (20.6 x 9.6 x 22.3") or 255 x 565 x 530 mm (20.9 x 10 x 22.2") or 250 x 404 x 359 mm (9.8 x 15.9 x 14.1"). This makes it possible to place them almost anywhere.
  • Noise: 19-inch servers are extremely loud. The average noise level is typically around 90 decibels, which is as loud as a subway train and exceeds the noise level that is considered safe for workers subject to long-term exposure. In contrast, our GH200 and Grace tower models are very quiet (factory setting is 25 decibels) and they can easily be adjusted to even lower or higher noise levels because each fan can be tuned individually and manually from 0 to 100% PWM duty cycle. Efficient cooling is ensured, because our GH200 tower models have a higher number of fans and the low-revving Noctua fans have a much bigger diameter compared to their 19-inch counterparts and move approximately the same amount or even a much higher amount of air depending on the specific configuration and PWM tuning.
  • Transportability: 19-inch servers are not meant to be transported, consequently, they lack every feature in this regard. In addition, their form factor makes them rather unsuitable to be transported. Our GH200 tower models, in contrast, can be transported very easily. Our metal and mini cases even feature two handles, which makes moving them around very easy.
  • Infrastructure: 19-inch servers typically need quite some infrastructure to be able to be deployed. At the very least, a 19-inch mounting rack is definitely required. Our GH200 models do not need any special infrastructure at all. They can be deployed quickly and easily almost everywhere.
  • Latency: 19-inch servers are typically accessed via network. Because of this, there is always at least some latency. Our GH200 tower models can be used as desktops/workstations. In this use case, latency is virtually non-existent.
  • Looks: 19-inch server models are not particularly aesthetically pleasing. In contrast, our available case options are in our humble opinion by far the most beautiful there are.
