Inspur NF5288M5 is an “AI super computer” designed for AI calculations and high performance computing and is the first server of its kind to use 300GB/s high speed NVIDIA® NVLink? to connect 8 high performance GPU accelerators within 2U space.
It is the world’s densest and most powerful AI server.
NF5288M5 provides outstanding AI and HPC application acceleration. When it comes to computing tasks in AI training, it can provide single node with a peak value computing power of 960 Tensor TFLOPs, which is more than 200 times more powerful than what traditional dual-CPU servers can provide.
In terms of HPC applications, it can provide single node with a peak value of over 60 TFLOPS double-precision floating-point power.
Moreover, NF5288M5 is based on high-density design and can easily allow a 42U rack’s cluster’s peak performance to rise above 1 PFLOPS (one quadrillion floating point operations per second).
While NF5288M5 provides dense computing power, it also features flexible design that caters to different computing scenarios. Different applications need different heterogeneous processors.
For example, NF5288M5 can support NVLINK’s SXM2 port GPU or traditional PCle port accelerator by changing its modules, providing clients with plenty of options. 8 GPU and CPU use flexible coupling to form 10 different topologies, providing high CPU/GPU bandwidth, GPU direct communication optimization, or GPU enhanced direct communication topologies.
It can even use a single bit CPU to manage 8 GPU, or provide dual-system horizontal expansion to 16 GPU structure.
