Nvidia claims it will build the most powerful supercomputer in the UK

Nvidia, based in Santa Clara, California, said it would spend 40 million pounds ($52 million) on the supercomputer, dubbed Cambridge-1.

The announcement comes after the company said last month that it had agreed to buy up to $ 40 billion from the UK-based chip designer Arm Holdings.

LONDON: Graphic chip maker Nvidia said Monday that it plans to build Britain’s fastest supercomputer that health researchers will use to work on health problems, including COVID-19.

Nvidia, based in Santa Clara, California, said it will spend 40 million pounds ($52 million) on the supercomputer, dubbed Cambridge-1, which will consist of 80 Nvidia systems and is expected to be online by the end of the year.

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said that Cambridge-1 will be open to health researchers using artificial intelligence to work on urgent medical problems.

“To tackle the world’s most urgent health issues requires massively powerful computing resources to harness the capabilities of AI,” Huang said.

Cambridge-1 will be ranked the 29th most powerful supercomputer in the world and the most powerful in the U.K., the organization said.

The pharmaceutical firms GlaxoSmithKline and AstraZeneca are among the groups who have already signed up for the use of the supercomputer.

The announcement comes after the company stated last month that it agreed to purchase U.K.-based chip designer Arm Holdings for up to $ 40 billion and will set up an Artificial Intelligence research center in Cambridge , England, where Arm is headquartered.
