Meta, the parent company of Facebook, has revealed an artificial intelligence-powered supercomputer system with “terrible” speed, which is in the process of being built.
The information was recently released by CEO Mark Zuckerberg when he said that the parent company of Facebook is building an artificial intelligence supercomputer in a project related to the goal of developing the Metaverse.
According to Mark Zuckerberg’s post: “Our experience shows that the Metaverse will require huge computing power at billions of billions of calculations per second. RSC allows new AI models to learn from trillions of samples, understand hundreds of languages, and more.”
AI Supercomputer – Meta, the parent company of Facebook, is building the RSC.
The supercomputer system, called the AI Research SuperCluster (RSC), is known to have been developed by Meta in collaboration with teams from Nvidia, Pure Storage and Penguin Computing to build an entirely new AI system, providing real-time voice translation capability for multiple sets of People, each speaking a different language, so they can seamlessly collaborate on a research project or play an interactive augmented reality game. In addition, RSSC will also use moderation algorithms to detect harmful and negative content on Meta platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.
In terms of the revealed specifications, the RSC will be equipped in the early stages with a 760 Nvidia DGX A100 system with 6,080 GPUs for computing tasks. This number will rise to 16,000 GPUs when completed. The GPUs communicate with each other over the Nvidia Quantum 200Gbit/s transmission system. Triple memory with a capacity of 10, 46 and 175 petabytes, respectively.
In the test published by the company, the process of processing computer vision tasks was 20 times faster than the system used by the Meta with 22,000 Nvidia V100 Tensor Core GPUs.
With its “horrible” hardware and data processing capabilities, the RSC supercomputer, although not yet at the top, will definitely be in the top 5 supercomputers in the world.
