The world of technology is a witness this time Collaboration between Microsoft and Nvidia in the construction of artificial intelligence supercomputer will be. This news was announced by these two companies on November 16.
This time, Microsoft will collaborate with Nvidia to build an artificial intelligence supercomputer. This supercomputer will be used to train artificial intelligence applications. It should be said that Microsoft is one of the first companies that Nvidia H100 processor With an architecture known as Hopper, it buys in bulk for the development of this supercomputer.

Details of artificial intelligence supercomputer construction
It is worth noting that the H100 graphics processor The flagship of Nvidia graphics chips Designed for server use. This processor has high energy efficiency with a speed 6 times faster than the previous flagship A100. In addition, H100 processor along with Intel Xeon Ice Lake core processor is also used in Lenovo’s artistic supercomputer. In the construction of the new supercomputer, the H100 and A100 graphics processors will be the graphics heart.
In this project, NVIDIA Quantum-2 400Gb/s InfiniBand is used to build the network. The commercial AI software package also takes over the software side. In addition, Microsoft’s cloud infrastructure (Azure) and virtual machines (ND and NC series) will also be used in this project. As a result, with these explanations, we will witness the first use of NVIDIA Quantum-2 400Gb/s InfiniBand in a public supercomputer.
Collaboration with Microsoft is a big benefit for Nvidia
Nvidia has announced that it hopes for the result of this cooperation to be able to Unsupervised learning algorithm (or with limited supervision) to implement. It is worth mentioning that in unsupervised algorithmic learning, machines have the ability to produce content such as text, code, digital images, video or audio. Microsoft also tries to use the DeepSpeed open source library, artificial intelligence and deep learning for this supercomputer. DeepSpeed is used to minimize neural network infrastructure.
In this regard, Manveer Das, a commercial representative at Nvidia, announced:
“Our partnership with Microsoft provides researchers and enterprises with the latest AI infrastructure and software to harness the revolutionary power of AI.”
Nvidia was working on the Selene supercomputer during the Corona pandemic. This supercomputer, which uses the A100 chip, is used for machine learning, AI data analysis and high-power computing (HPC). Celine’s supercomputer has so far registered something similar to DALL-E in its GauGAN2 artificial intelligence model training record.
