FIRST GENERATION GAUDI:
DEEP LEARNING TRAINING PROCESSOR
PRICE PERFORMANCE IN THE CLOUD
Habana® Gaudi® Deep Learning Training Processor
With our first-generation Gaudi deep learning processor, Habana provides customers with the cost-effective, high-performance training alternative to existing GPUs. This is the deep learning architecture that enables AWS to deliver the best price/performance training instance in its AI portfolio—the Gaudi-based DL1—beating comparable GPU-based instances by up to 40% for price performance. And, it enables Supermicro to provide customers with the X12 Gaudi Training Server, also at a 40% price performance advantage over GPU-based servers.

SCALING WITH GAUDI
Every first-generation Gaudi processor integrates ten 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports of RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE2) on chip to deliver unmatched scalability, enabling customers to efficiently scale AI training from one processor to 1000s to nimbly address expansive compute requirements of today’s deep learning workloads.

Scaling options for first-gen Gaudi -based systems
For customers who want to build out on-premises systems, we recommend the Supermicro X12 Gaudi Training Server, which is already configured with eight Gaudi processors and provides the option of incremental advanced AI storage with the DDN AI400X2 Storage Appliance.
For customers who wish to configure their own Gaudi-based servers, we provide reference model options, the Gaudi HLS-1 and HLS-1H. For more information on these server options, please see more details >
Making developing on Gaudi Fast and Easy
Synapse®AI Software Suite
Optimized, for deep learning model development and to ease migration of existing GPU-based models to Gaudi platform hardware. It integrates TensorFlow and PyTorch frameworks and 36 reference models, covering primarily computer vision and natural language processing models. Getting started with model migration is as easy as adding 2 lines of code, and for expert users who wish to program their own kernels, Habana offers the full tool-kit and libraries to do that as well. SynapseAI software supports training models on first-gen Gaudi and Gaudi2 and inferencing them on any target, including Intel®Xeon® processors, Habana® Greco™ or inferencing on Gaudi2 itself.
