New Tech Alert - Suitcase "Supercomputer"

Summary

 Ultra small Supercomputer 

 

Quotes

Quote

Portable Supercomputer that comes as a suitcase with 4 GPU and 246 TB storage and a 2500w power supply.

 

My thoughts

So many applications for this small tech.

 

- Portable scientific hardware modeling system.

- Full portable medical equipment

- Life in a box

- Portable RAG AI platform for all of your needs (think Jarvis?)

 

I would love to see a video on this.

What is the definition of a supercomputer? Physically it is built for a task, but the compute side isn't special as far as I can tell. Basically it's a single socket EPYC CPU with 4 GPUs stuck on it assuming you want a big pool of storage too.

 

The L40S used seem to have the same core configuration as RTX 6000 Ada (few more than 4090), and L40S has slightly higher clocks at same rated power.

Thats some markting wank calling it a super computer. You can call any desktop PC today a super computer because its more powerful then a super computer 20 years ago. 

This is just a Server rack with dolly wheels attached to the bottom. Its explicitly a minicomputer. Not to say the density isn't cool, but calling it super strongly turns me off of it

It's literally just a relatively small rack server...

Citing the needs of Department of Defense customers, GigaIO CEO Alan Benjamin pointed out the need to collect and process data where it happened in the field.

Yeah, this is pretty much the only use case I can think of. In what other situation are you collecting terabytes of data while not having a high end system nearby, or reachable through the internet?

This looks to be a solution for a traveling sales engineer to pitch a proof of concept (POC) AI application.

 

Alternatively, I could see this being used for military applications.

-> Moved to General Discussion

 

For video suggestions, please use existing thread 

 

 

For this to be counted as Tech News, you need to add way more content. Expand both your personal thoughts and summary, with favorably longer quote from the article.

Personal thought, this doesn't sound like supercomputer. So sad to see well-known site to water down these terms that used to have meaning.

^^^^ That's my post ^^^^

but for what? Like seriously, what military anything needs 4 gpus in a portable unit?

Tbh, we are seeing the development of AI shoot-to-kill automation and I can definitely see the need for compute in portability in they regard

we have had that for a while now, look at CIWS systems

I'm talking about deciding the difference between a civilian and a combatant in CAS, automated indirect fire and drone tanks/ground assault drones.

 

Takes much more compute than aiming at something if it is is traveling over x speed in x directly

I would doubt most militaries would even take that risk. If a jumpy soldier can make a mistake, what about an AI trained off of one?
