Autonomous vehicles will likely become the future for getting around, but the technology is not quite there yet. We still hear about accidents that occur due to a driver not being behind the car's wheel or simple dumb mistakes. To help quell these issues in the future, NVIDIA has created the NVIDIA DRIVE Sim through its Omniverse, a collection of the company's core technologies. During the GTC keynote, NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang announced the "next generation of autonomous vehicle simulation," called the NVIDIA DRIVE Sim. Purportedly, the sim provides a "high-fidelity simulation by tapping into NVIDIA's core technologies to deliver a powerful, cloud-based computing platform," which can... Read more...
The automotive industry is quickly moving towards autonomous capabilities for cars and trucks to make driving from place to place less demanding/stressful and safer. However, a lot of computing power is needed to process data from the various cameras, sensors, and collision avoidance hardware mounted on today's vehicles. The faster that this data can be processed, the better. To this end, NVIDIA has announced the development of its DRIVE Atlan platform, which is its latest system on a chip (SoC). NVIDIA isn't providing many details on the architectural details behind Atlan other than the fact that it features next-generation Arm cores and GPU architecture (Ampere-Next). Also on deck will be the... Read more...
During its GTC 2021 keynote today, NVIDIA unveiled a new product for high performance computing (HPC) clients, its first-ever data center CPU called Grace. Based on Arm's architecture, NVIDIA claims Grace serves up 10x better performance than the fastest servers on the market currently, for complex artificial intelligence and HPC workloads. To be clear, though this is NVIDIA's first data center CPU, it is not intended to compete head-to-head against Intel's Xeon lineup and AMD's EPYC processors. NVIDIA made a point to say this, noting it continues to provide full support for all big iron server CPUs, including x86, Arm, and Power architectures. Instead, Grace is more of a niche product, in that... Read more...
NVIDIA's GTC 2021 keynote will kick off this coming Monday (April 12th) at 11:30 am EST broadcast from CES Jensen Huang's now-famous kitchen. With that initial announcement came a teaser video that featured a neuron with blinking lights. Some rather astute onlookers guessed that the blinking lights were using morse code, which spelled out HIDDEN TREASURE. Not long after that discovery, the actual link to NVIDIA's Hidden Treasure website was found, in which the company explains that it has left quite a few Easter eggs lying around for people to find. "These are clues & hidden treasures for those with eagle eyes to discover," NVIDIA explains. "Watch closely, and if you see anything out of the... Read more...
