New GPU node available on Sherlock
There’s a new GPU node in the
It’s notable for a list of reasons. This is the first node on Sherlock to feature both:
- the latest generation of Intel CPUs (Skylake),
- the latest generation of computing-optimized NVIDIA GPUs,
and it’s also the first node on Sherlock with 32GB GPUs, which is particularly interesting for a lot of Deep-Learning oriented workloads.
This compute node features:
- 24x Intel Skylake CPU cores (2x Xeon 5118, 2.30GHz),
- 192GB of memory (RAM),
- 4x NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs with 32GB of GPU memory each.
Nodes in the
gpu partition are now available to everyone on Sherlock, and the new node can be requested by adding the following flag to your job submission options:
To request an interactive session on a Tesla V100 GPU with 32GB of memory, you can run:
srun -p gpu --gres gpu:1 -C "GPU_SKU:V100_SXM2&GPU_MEM:32GB" --pty bash
