Nvidia has unveiled several updates to its deep-learning computing platform, including an absurdly powerful GPU and supercomputer.
At this year's GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang unveiled the DGX-2, a new computer for researchers who are "pushing the outer limits of deep-learning research and computing" to train artificial intelligence.
The computer, which will ship later this year, is the world's first system to sport a whopping two petaflops of performance. For some perspective: A Macbook Pro might have around one teraflop. A petaflop is one thousand teraflops.
