ASUS announced its participation in NVIDIA® GTC, a developer conference for the era of AI and the metaverse. ASUS will offer comprehensive NVIDIA-certified server solutions that support the latest NVIDIA L4 Tensor Core GPU — which accelerates real-time video AI and generative AI — as well as the NVIDIA BlueField®-3 DPU, igniting unprecedented innovation for supercomputing infrastructure.
Purpose-built GPU servers for generative AI
Generative AI applications enable businesses to develop better products and services, and deliver original content tailored to the unique needs of customers and audiences. ASUS ESC8000 and ESC4000 are fully certified NVIDIA servers that support up to eight NVIDIA L4 Tensor Core GPUs, which deliver universal acceleration and energy efficiency for AI with up to 2.7X more generative AI performance than the previous GPU generation. ASUS ESC and RS series servers are engineered for HPC workloads, with support for the NVIDIA Bluefield-3 DPU to transform data center infrastructure, as well as NVIDIA AI Enterprise applications for streamlined AI workflows and deployment.
An academic AI breakthrough case
ASUS has also been collaborating with one of the top data centers in Taiwan — the National Health Research Institutes (NHRI). This is dedicated to medical research, biotech innovations from drug discovery, genomics analysis and assisted AI. ASUS has provided NHRI with a comprehensive AI solution in the form of an RS720 server and NVIDIA DGX A100 systems, along with private-cloud software to envision academic AI in the future. As a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Certified Kubernetes Software Conformance provider, ASUS is empowered to ignite more innovations and business opportunities in AI fields.
Introducing the ESC N8-E11 flagship server
ASUS is empowering the future of AI infrastructure by launching ESC N8-E11, a next-gen NVIDIA HGX H100 8-GPU server that is suited to large-scale AI training models and HPC. It incorporates PCIe® 5.0 connectivity, fourth-generation NVLink technology, and the new CNX cards empowering GPUDirect® RDMA and Storage with NVIDIA Magnum IO™ and NVIDIA AI Enterprise, the software layer of the NVIDIA AI platform, to accelerate the development of AI and data science. This 7U dual-socket Intel® server features optimized thermal design and liquid cooling to deliver unprecedented performance for data analytics, AI and simulation.
