TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Computex -- NVIDIA today announced that it has won two Best Choice Awards at COMPUTEX 2019, extending its record-breaking win streak to 11 consecutive years at the world’s leading IT, communications and IoT trade show.
The NVIDIA DGX-2™, the world’s most powerful AI system, won a Golden Award, while NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier™, an AI platform for autonomous machines, won a Category Award for IPC and Embedded Products.
The NVIDIA DGX-2 is the first 2-petaflops AI system, with 16 NVIDIA V100 Tensor Core GPUs interconnected with NVSwitch™ technology. Designed for the most compute-intensive applications, DGX-2 offers performance breakthroughs in the most demanding areas of scientific computing, AI and machine learning.
The world’s leading researchers have adopted DGX-2 in a wide range of industries. Last year, China Medical University Hospital, in Taiwan, became Asia’s first healthcare provider to deploy and operate the system. Its medical team has launched several DGX-2-powered initiatives, which have been adopted by 16 hospitals across Taiwan.
NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier is built on the success of its predecessors, Jetson™ TX1 and TX2, which won Computex Best Choice Awards in 2016 and 2017, respectively. Jetson AGX Xavier is the world’s first AI computer created to bring robots and other autonomous machines to life. Delivering up to 32 TOPS of computing performance, Jetson AGX Xavier has greater than 10x the energy efficiency and more than 20x the performance of its predecessor.
Two NVIDIA partners also won Computex Best Choice Awards for products using NVIDIA technology. ASUS won a Golden Award for the ASUS Mini PC ProArt PA90, a professional workstation for content creators that features NVIDIA Quadro® GPUs. MSI won Category Awards for the MSI Prestige P100 content creation PC and the MSI Trident X Plus gaming PC, which both feature NVIDIA GeForce® GPUs.
NVIDIA ’s (NASDAQ: NVDA) invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world.
