Supermicro Delivers Second-Generation NVIDIA® OVX™ Computing System for 3D Collaboration, Metaverse, and Digital Twin Simulation, Powered by the New NVIDIA L40 GPU
San Jose, Calif., September 21, 2022 – Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, GPUs, networking solutions, and green computing technology, is extending its lead in accelerated compute infrastructure again by being first to market with the second-generation NVIDIA® OVX™ systems.
The Supermicro OVX server is based on the new L40 GPU in a 4U 8GPU server with dual Intel CPUs, 32 DIMMs, 8TB of memory, 12 PCI-E slots, and up to 24 drive bays. Additional servers that utilize the L40 GPU include a range of systems from Supermicro: the 4U 4GPU rackmount/workstation, the 2U with up to 6GPUs, the 1U 4GPU, and the multi-node 2U 2Node system. These systems all support NVIDIA L40 PCI-E-based GPUs.
“Supermicro is again leading the industry by being first to market with the second generation OVX server,” said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. “Our most demanding customers require the integration of the fastest CPUs and GPUs for low-latency, immersive experiences. Our OVX server is designed for creating and operating the most complex Omniverse Enterprise applications at scale.”
These new servers deliver the ground-breaking graphics, AI, and network performance required to build and operate immersive 3D virtual worlds. OVX systems from Supermicro are purpose-built for creating and managing NVIDIA Omniverse™ Enterprise applications at a data center scale and combine the most advanced NVIDIA RTX-accelerated graphics and AI capabilities with high-speed, secure networking and enterprise-grade management.
The NVIDIA L40 GPUs will be incorporated into Supermicro’s current generation, and the next generations of systems are based on Intel and AMD platforms. Next-generation Supermicro systems leveraging the L40 GPU will include the 4U 8GPU server, the 4U 4GPU server, and 2U and 1U servers and workstations. Each Supermicro OVX server is powered by up to eight NVIDIA® L40 GPUs, bringing the power of the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture to accelerate Omniverse workloads. These systems combine GPUs with three NVIDIA® ConnectX®-7 SmartNICs, high-performance CPUs, and NVMe storage in a unified platform and will be available soon. The next generation of AI applications will require a computing platform optimized for creating graphically rich and physically accurate virtual worlds. Supermicro OVX systems are ideal for supporting this ongoing industry development.
“Supermicro OVX servers are computing systems purpose built for creating and operating NVIDIA Omniverse applications at data center scale,” said Kevin Connors, vice president of OEM accounts at NVIDIA. “This second-generation Supermicro OVX server is optimized to power the creation and operation of immersive, photorealistic 3D models, simulations, and digital twins.”
