NVIDIA intros Grace CPU for giant AI and high performance computing workloads

NVIDIA announced its first data center CPU— the NVIDIA Grace. As per NVIDIA, it is an Arm-based processor that delivers 10x the performance of today’s fastest servers.

According to NVIDIA, the NVIDIA Grace is the result of more than 10,000 engineering years of work. The company mentioned that the Grace CPU is designed to address the computing requirements for the world’s most advanced applications, including natural language processing, recommender systems, and AI supercomputing. It combines energy-efficient ARM CPU cores with a low-power memory subsystem that delivers efficient performances.

The NVIDIA Grace CPU, named after Grace Hopper, the U.S computer-programming pioneer, will serve a niche segment of computing.

“Leading-edge AI and data science are pushing today’s computer architecture beyond its limits – processing unthinkable amounts of data,” said Jensen Huang, founder, and CEO of NVIDIA. “Using licensed Arm IP, NVIDIA has designed Grace as a CPU specifically for giant-scale AI and HPC. Coupled with the GPU and DPU, Grace gives us the third foundational technology for computing, and the ability to re-architect the data center to advance AI. NVIDIA is now a three-chip company.”


 

Grace is a specialized processor that targets workloads such as training next-generation NLP models with more than 1 trillion parameters. When paired with NVIDIA GPUs, a Grace CPU-based system will deliver 10x faster performance than NVIDIA DGX based systems which run on x86 CPUs, according to NVIDIA.

The Swiss National Supercomputer Centre (CSCS) and the U.S Department of Energy’s Los Alamos National Laboratory are the first to announce their plans to build Grace-powered supercomputers in support of national scientific research efforts.

Underlying Grace’s performance is fourth-generation NVIDIA NVLink interconnect technology, which provides a 900 GB/s connection between Grace and NVIDIA GPUs that enables 30x higher aggregate bandwidth compared to today’s leading servers.

Moreover, Grace will be using LPDDR5X memory and new architecture that provides unified cache coherence with a single memory address space, combining system and HBM GPU memory that simplifies programmability.

The availability of the NVIDIA Grace CPU is expected in 2023.

Siri reveals Apple event on April 20

Siri has revealed an upcoming Apple event set on April 20. Upon asking Siri when the next Apple event is, she responds with the event that will occur on the said date at the Apple Park in Cupertino, California.

Siri’s vague information has been present across Apple devices such as the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and even Homepod. However, Macrumors reports that the event will likely be a pre-recorded affair without media in attendance and might be live-streamed on Apple’s website and YouTube channel.


 

According to Bloomberg’s report, Apple plans to showcase its brand new 12.9-inch iPad pro with new mini-LED display technology, A14X chip and Thunderbolt connectivity around April. This somewhat aligns with the statement of Siri. Nonetheless, Apple representatives refused to further comment on the speculation.

There is still no further information about this upcoming event. Stay tuned to our page for more updates.

Manny Pacquiao legendary hero skin arrives in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang

World Boxing Legend Manny Pacquiao has become the newest skin for the game’s fighter hero, Paquito. So far, he is the only living person to be immortalized in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang’s collection of hero skins.

“We spent a total of 4 months to create the hero, Paquito. We extracted the spiritual core of Manny Pacquiao, and I’m sure our players feel the champion’s spirit when they play him in the game,” said Mr. William Mei, Marketing Manager of MLBB for the Philippines.

As per the MLBB team, it took them up to 6 months of constant communication with Manny Pacquiao’s team to create the final design of Paquito’s new skin. “Hundreds of photos of Manny were taken and collected to perfectly capture the in-game details such as tattoos, expressions, and other minute details,” Mei added.


 

“I felt very honored when Moonton approached me for this partnership,” said Pacquiao. “It’s hard to say no when you have a hero inspired by you in the game, and now, they will give him new skin which will have my name on it. It’s exciting,” he added.

Since Mobile Legends: Bang Bang released Paquito “The Heavenly Fist” last January 2021, a sales record was set within the first week. MLBB mentioned that one out of every seven Filipino players purchased him. Besides, Paquito has a usage rate of up to 3% in games above the rank of Legend with a win rate of 53%.

The new Paquito skin was launched today, April 13, and will last until September 15, 2021. During its launch, free avatar frames and in-game emoticons will also be given to gamers who will finish the in-game events.

Discounts for the skin will also be available on the first week, as well as a number of online activities for players to acquire the skin for free.
