One of the most important launches today is the new Dell EMC PowerEdge XE8545 server which uniquely combines AMD and Nvidia technology designed for accelerated workloads and ideal for machine learning, HPC and GPU virtualization.
The new 4U PowerEdge XE8545 server combines the maximum core counts of two 3rd generation AMD EPYC processors with four of the highest performing NVIDIA A100 GPUs. PowerEdge XE8545 offers up to 128 cores of Milan CPUs, four Nvidia A100 GPUs, and optimized performance of Nvidia‘s vGPU software in a dual socket, 4U rack server.
“It is designed specifically for accelerated workloads, which make it ideal for cutting-edge machine learning models, complex high-performance computing and GPU virtualization,” said Ravi Pendekanti, senior vice president of server solutions product management and marketing at Dell EMC in a blog post. The PowerEdge XE8545 is one of the first servers on the market to have the new Nvidia NVLink baseboard with Nvidia’s A100 chips in it. The server is completely air cooled for greater efficiency and lower cost of operation.
The Dell EMC PowerEdge XE8545 servers will become globally available on March 29.
