Nvidia pledges over $100m for UK supercomputer as talks on its Arm acquisition reach regulators

Jun 22, 2021 | Posted by admin

Nvidia has announced that it is funneling over $100 million into its Cambridge-1 supercomputer, based at the Kao Data Campus in Harlow. This is $45 million more than its original pledge. 

This announcement came as the GPU company revealed their acquisition of Arm for $40 billion, which the company expects to go through by 2022. That said, this is a deal that still has to be approved by regulators in the UK, EU, US and China. Nvidia is reportedly now in talks with UK government officials regarding the opening of the data center. 

The supercomputer will feature 80 Nvidia DGX A100 systems combined for 400 petaflops of 'AI compute,' or eight petaflops of standard Linpack performance. This specification places it 29th on the top 500 list of the most powerful supercomputers.
