Supermicro has announced a new 4U server supporting eight NVIDIA HGX A100 GPUs.

Leveraging Supermicro's advanced thermal design, including custom heatsinks and optional liquid cooling, the latest high-density 2U and 4U servers feature NVIDIA HGX A100 4-GPU 8-GPU baseboards, along with a new 4U server supporting eight NVIDIA A100 PCI-E GPUs. Supermicro's Advanced I/O Module (AIOM) form factor further enhances networking communication with high flexibility.

The AIOM can be coupled with the latest high-speed, low latency PCI-E 4.0 storage and networking devices that support NVIDIA GPUDirect RDMA and GPUDirect Storage with NVME over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) on NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand that feeds the expandable multi-GPU system with a continuous stream of data flow without bottlenecks. In addition, Supermicro's Titanium Level power supplies keep the system green to realise even greater cost savings.
