Nvidia and Cineca, an Italian inter-university consortium and major supercomputing center, have announced plans to build ‘the world’s fastest AI supercomputer.’

The upcoming Leonardo system will use nearly 14,000 Nvidia A100 GPUs for a variety of high-performance computing tasks. The peak performance of the system is expected to hit 10 FP16 ExaFLOPS. 

The supercomputer will be based on Atos’ BullSequana XH2000 supercomputer nodes, each carrying one unknown Intel Xeon processor, four Nvidia A100 GPUs and a Mellanox HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand card for connectivity. The blades are water cooled and there are 32 of them in each HPC cabinet.

The BullSequana XH2000 architecture is very flexible, so it can house any CPU and GPU and, to that end, we can only guess which Intel Xeon processor will be used for Leonardo.

Scientists from Italian universities plan to use Leonardo for drug discovery, space exploration and research, and weather modelling.
