To enable professionals worldwide to build and run AI applications right from their desktops, NVIDIA and AMD are powering a new line of workstations equipped with NVIDIA RTX Ada Generation GPUs and AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 WX-Series CPUs.
Bringing together the highest levels of AI computing, rendering and simulation capabilities, these new platforms enable professionals to efficiently tackle the most resource-intensive, large-scale AI workflows locally.
Bringing AI Innovation to the Desktop
Advanced AI tasks typically require data-center-level performance. Training a large language model with a trillion parameters, for example, takes thousands of GPUs running for weeks, though research is underway to reduce model size and enable model training on smaller systems while still maintaining high levels of AI model accuracy.
The new NVIDIA RTX GPU and AMD CPU-powered AI workstations provide the power and performance required for training such smaller models, as well as local fine-tuning, and helping to offload data center and cloud resources for AI development tasks. The devices let users select single- or multi-GPU configurations as required for their workloads.
Smaller trained AI models also provide the opportunity to use workstations for local inferencing. RTX GPU and AMD CPU-powered workstations can be configured to run these smaller AI models for inference serving for small workgroups or departments.
With up to 48GB of memory in a single NVIDIA RTX GPU, these workstations offer a cost-effective way to reduce compute load on data centers. And when professionals do need to scale training and deployment from these workstations to data centers or the cloud, the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software platform enables seamless portability of workflows and toolchains.
RTX GPU and AMD CPU-powered workstations also enable cutting-edge visual workflows. With accelerated computing power, the new workstations enable highly interactive content creation, industrial digitalization, and advanced simulation and design.
Unmatched Power, Performance and Flexibility
AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 WX-Series processors provide the CPU platform for the next generation of demanding workloads. The processors deliver a significant increase in core count — up to 96 cores per CPU — and industry-leading maximum memory bandwidth in a single socket.
Combining them with the latest NVIDIA RTX Ada Generation GPUs brings unmatched power and performance in a workstation. The GPUs enable up to 2x the performance in ray tracing, AI processing, graphics rendering and computational tasks compared to the previous generation.
Ada Generation GPUs options include the RTX 4000 SFF, RTX 4000, RTX 4500, RTX 5000 and RTX 6000. They’re built on the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture and feature up to 142 third-generation RT Cores, 568 fourth-generation Tensor Cores and 18,176 latest-generation CUDA cores.
From architecture and manufacturing to media and entertainment and healthcare, professionals across industries will be able to use the new workstations to tackle challenging AI computing workloads — along with 3D rendering, product visualization, simulation and scientific computing tasks.
New workstations powered by NVIDIA RTX Ada Generation GPUs and the latest AMD Threadripper Pro processors will be available starting next month from BOXX and HP, with other system integrators offering them soon.
