NVIDIA's AI computing platform has smashed through performance records once more during the latest round of inference tests hosted via the industry benchmarking consortium called MLPerf, according to a press release shared under embargo with Interesting Engineering.
For the first time, there are more GPUs than CPUs in active inference performance on cloud service platforms.
Taken as a whole, this substantially widens NVIDIA's lead as the industry's only independent leader in AI performance, services, and software — as AI applications are moving into more mainstream applications than ever before.
NVIDIA GPUs won every test of AI inference in data center and edge computer systems in the most recent round of the only consortium-based peer-reviewed benchmarks in the industry. Edge computing involves AI attached to the point-of-action, where, for example, an AI security drone would need to make real-time decisions without the delay of connection or remote control.
