NVIDIA NVLINK HIGH-SPEED INTERCONNECT

NVIDIA NVLINK HIGH-SPEED INTERCONNECT

MAXIMUM THROUGHPUT FOR SUPERIOR APPLICATION PERFORMANCE


NVIDIA® NVLink™ is a high-bandwidth, energy-efficient interconnect that enables ultra-fast communication between the CPU and GPU, and between GPUs. The technology allows data sharing at rates 5 to 12 times faster than the traditional PCIe Gen3 interconnect, resulting in dramatic speed-ups in application performance and creating a new breed of high-density, flexible servers for accelerated computing. Download the whitepaper for more details on NVLink.
Designed to solve the challenges of exascale computing, NVLink is a fundamental ingredient of the U.S. Department of Energy’s next-generation supercomputers. These new systems—”Summit” at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and “Sierra” at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory—will be three times faster than today’s fastest supercomputer. Read more about these supercomputers by downloading the technology brief.
A 5x faster interconnect will double application performance instantaneously
