Northern Data, a leader in Bitcoin mining and HPC applications, has been acquired 24,000 EPYC servers and 223,000 AMD and Nvidia GPUs Shares from Block.one, priced at 195 million euros and another 170 million euros. The new GPUs and servers will make Northern Data’s server infrastructure more powerful than Fugaku, the world’s fastest supercomputer.
Northern Data expects that the complete installation of the GPU server system will be completed in the third quarter of 2021, with servers installed in multiple countries/regions, including Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Germany. The additional hardware will more than double the original computing power of Northern Data, from 1.29 exaflops of FP32 performance to 2.6 exaflops.
Northern Data’s main goal is to significantly enhance its HPC and Bitcoin mining business with new graphics cards and EYPC processors. But the company also plans to expand rendering, artificial intelligence, blockchain applications, and IoT workflows for Northern Data customers.
What is not clear is what type of GPU we are talking about. Are these consumer graphics cards used for Ethereum mining and other cryptocurrency efforts, or are they data center GPUs specifically designed for AI and HPC applications? we do not know.
What we know is that the number of 223,000 GPUs is approximately 100 times the number of all GPUs. Micro center received for Radeon RX 6600 XT emission. This is just a mining company that sells some of its hardware.Based on the computing power of the Ethereum network, it needs 5 million GeForce RTX 3090 A card that powers the network; 10 million GPUs, for example Tencent 3070 and RTX 3060 Titanium, Or RX 6800/RX 6800 XT/RX 6900 XT; Or 20 million GPUs, for example RX 6600 XT and RX 580 8GB. Little miracle Graphics card price Keep it inflated.
