NVIDIA has revealed details about the company’s next supercomputer, the DGX GH200, which has been built to help companies develop generative AI models.

The machine uses a new NVLink Switch System to enable 256 chips to perform as if they were a single GPU. NVIDIA claims the system offers nearly 500 times as much memory as you’d find in previous DGX A100 computers, quite probably making it the most powerful supercomputer on the planet.

Several key players are interested in the DGX GH200. Google Cloud, Meta, and Microsoft will be some of the first to put the system through its paces as they test its capacity for generative AI workloads.

NVIDIA says the new machine will be available by the end of 2023, by which time they should have already developed Helios, an even more powerful version combining four DGX GH200 systems.

Meanwhile, on the gaming front, NVIDIA’s Avatar Cloud Engine (ACE) has been revealed, allowing developers to create custom AI models for speech, conversation, and animation. NVIDIA claims that ACE for Games will “give non-playable characters conversational skills so they can respond to questions with lifelike personalities that evolve”.

Hamad International Airport saw a massive 31% surge in passenger traffic during 2023, with the transport hub now serving over 45 million passengers annually. The airport is now home to prestigious airlines, including Vistara, Iberia, Xiamen Airlines, Garuda Indonesia, and Japan Airlines, serving 250+ destinations for passenger and cargo flights.

The uptick in traffic is no doubt due to the completion of the first phase of an extensive expansion project. Hamad’s management intends to radically update the airport’s facilities over the coming years in a bid to create the “airport of the future”.
