Nvidia to Build Israeli Supercomputer as Demand for AI Grows

Nvidia constructing Israel’s powerful AI supercomputer to customer.

Nvidia: The cloud-based system, Supercomputer the world’s most valuable publicly traded chip manufacturer, will cost hundreds of millions of dollars and will be partially operational by the end of 2023.

Moreover, Nvidia Senior Vice President Gilad Shainer stated that the company collaborated with 800 Israeli companies and tens of thousands of software engineers.

The Israel-1 system is intended to produce up to eight exaflops of AI computing performance, making it one of the world’s fastest AI supercomputers. One exaflop can do 1 quintillion – or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 – calculations per second.

AI is the “most important technology in our lifetime,” and big graphics processing units (GPUs) are required to develop AI and generative AI applications, According to Shainer.

Finally, Generative AI is everywhere these days.” “You need to be able to run training on large datasets,” he told Reuters, adding that Israeli companies will get access to a supercomputer that they do not currently have.

“This is a large-scale system that will allow them to do training much faster, build frameworks, and build solutions that can deal with more complex problems.”

For example, OpenAI’s ChatGPT was built using thousands of Nvidia GPUs.

The former Mellanox team created the system. Nvidia paid roughly $7 billion for Israeli chip creator Mellanox Technologies in 2019, outbidding Intel Corp.

Nvidia’s main goal for the supercomputer, according to Shainer, was its Israeli partners. “We may use this system in the future to collaborate with partners outside of Israel,” he said.

Nvidia announced last week that it has collaborated with the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom to develop a new supercomputer utilizing a new Nvidia chip that would compete with Intel and Advanced Micro Devices Inc.
