Every computer program is based on data analysis and this analysis will be very fast in this supercomputer. The 16GPU cards of 32 GB capacity on the computer make it very special in terms of capacity and significantly increases performance. DGX-1 supercomputers are currently available in some institutions in the country, including IISc Bengaluru. The DGX-2 supercomputer came into the country for the first time and has almost doubled its capacity from the previous version. Broadly speaking, the work that takes 15 days from DGX-1 will be done in just one-and-a-half days. The internal storage of this computer weighing about 150 kg is 30 TB. IIT Jodhpur and American supercomputer company Nvidia have signed a two-year agreement for research in the AI field. Under the same agreement, this computer has been brought here.
