Edgecore Networks Launches their new AI Server AGS8200

DateMay 23, 2024

The system is designed with eight Intel Habana Gaudi 2 processors and dual 4th Gen Xeon Scalable Sapphire-Rapids processors. The Gaudi 2 processor integrates 96GB HBM2E memory and 24 NICs of 100Gbps RoCEv2 RDMA. The 24 x 100Gbps NICs offer all-to-all connectivity and scale-out internally and externally for training, fine-tuning, and other DL processing.

Each Gaudi 2 processor has 21 x 100Gbps non-blocking, all-to-all connectivity to other Gaudi 2 processors within the server, allowing training across all eight Intel Gaudi 2 processors without requiring an external Ethernet switch.

Each AGS8200 supports 6 QSFP-DD ports for scale-out. The 400Gbps ports can be connected to 400Gbps switches, or 800Gbps switches via breakout cables, in racks and clusters of Intel Gaudi 2-based nodes.

A well-designed AI data center is comprised of AI servers, high-capacity switches, transceivers, and cables, none of which are dispensable. Meanwhile, Edgecore total AI solutions are optimized for high performance and efficiency, excelling in heavy loading environments. Edgecore presents its state-of-the-art 800G Ethernet switching solution tailored for AI/ML – the 800G AI data center networking switches AIS800 series. The switch ports are equipped with Tomahawk 5, facilitating the advancement of a converged data center infrastructure, featuring 64 ports of 800GbE for switching and routing. Edgecore embraces open architecture, proactively involving different projects, then delivers complete, flexible, and future-ready solutions for your AI/ML connectivity needs.
