Building On A 12-Year Partnership

Nvida CEO Jensen Huang Tuesday told attendees at the Nvidia GPU Technology Conference that his company's $6.9 billion acquisition of Mellanox is rooted in 12 years of building supercomputers together.

"If you take a look at our journey together, we started in supercomputing, and almost all the major supercomputers we worked on, you guys worked on as well," said Huang in a brief exchange with Waldman at this week's Nvidia GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, Calif. “And our engineers worked close hand-in-hand. And the reason for that is, when you have all these different compute nodes working together, the synchronization of the information, the sharing of the information, into one large simulation is very intensive."

Nvidia has characterized the Mellanox acquisition -- which is expected to be completed by the end of the year -- as a high performance computing game changer.

In fact, Huang sees the combination as key to fueling a new era in artificial intelligence and data science applications with billions of simultaneous users. That is going to require a new holistic architecture that connect vast numbers of fast computing nodes over intelligent network fabrics to form a giant data center scale compute engine, said Huang.
