Description: Bridges-2 Accelerated GPU (GPU) nodes are optimized for scalable artificial intelligence (AI; deep learning). Bridges-2 GPU nodes each contain 8 NVIDIA Tesla V100-32GB SXM2 GPUs, providing 40,960 CUDA cores and 5,120 tensor cores. In addition, each node holds 2 Intel Xeon Gold 6248 CPUs; 512GB of DDR4-2933 RAM; and 7.68TB NVMe SSD. They are connected to Bridges-2's other compute nodes and its Ocean parallel filesystem and archive by two HDR-200 InfiniBand links, providing 400Gbps of bandwidth to enhance scalability of deep learning training.

Recommended Use: Bridges-2 GPU nodes are optimized for scalable artificial intelligence (AI) including deep learning training, deep reinforcement learning, and generative techniques - as well as for accelerated simulation and modeling.
