Nvidia has been showing how it is elbowing its way into the CPU market starting with a new supercomputer based in the UK that will run on 384 of its Grace CPU Superchips.

A supercomputer, named Isambard 3, will be built by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) as part of a project being led by researchers at the University of Bristol. The company said the new supercomputer will deliver six times the performance and energy efficiency of its predecessor, Isambard 2.

Isambard project principal investigator Simon McIntosh-Smith said the Arm-based NVIDIA Grace CPU enables the breakthrough energy efficiency required to push the boundaries of scientific discovery and solve some of humanity’s most complex challenges.

Isambard 3’s significantly upgraded performance will enable new research in a wide range of areas, including in clean energy, modelling optimal configuration of wind farms on both land and water, and modelling fusion reactors to provide green energy in the future.
