NVIDIA GTC provides the premier opportunity for ML Engineers, Researchers & Leaders to connect, exchange knowledge, and stay at the forefront of advancements in AI. With over 900 sessions and 300 exhibits and networking events, GTC delivers something for every technical level and interest area. 

Lambda at NVIDIA GTC 2024

Lambda is a Diamond sponsor of GTC, taking place March 18-21 in San Jose, CA. This year, Lambda will showcase our latest cloud innovations, our NVIDIA GH200 Grace Hopper Superchip benchmarks, and how Lambda’s ML team is using Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG).

The Lambda and NVIDIA Partnership

Lambda is a GPU cloud company founded by AI engineers and focused on providing best-in-class infrastructure for AI, powered by NVIDIA technology. Lambda delivers cloud computing at scale while optimizing infrastructure performance across the full AI stack. Companies choose Lambda for our On-Demand Cloud, which features pay-by-the-hour access to NVIDIA GPUs, and our Reserved Cloud that allows ML teams to secure hundreds to thousands of GPUs for large model training. Lambda runs benchmarks on the latest-and-greatest AI infrastructure technology so our customers can have confidence in their AI compute investments. Lambda was also one of the first cloud providers to market with NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs and NVIDIA GH200 Superchip-powered systems.

Recent NVIDIA GH200 Grace Hopper Superchip benchmark

Lambda’s recent GH200 Superchip benchmark explores the synergy between ZeRO-Inference technology and the GH200, showcasing its remarkable proficiency in handling large language models (LLMs) and substantially enhancing inference throughput. The GH200 achieves 4-5 times the inference throughput of H100 GPUs and 9-11 times that of NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs for the Bloom 176B model when offloading model weights to CPU memory in GPU-constrained systems. This is attributed to GH200‘s significantly higher chip-to-chip bandwidth with NVIDIA NVLink-C2C, effectively eliminating the communication bottleneck for CPU offloading. This study also underscores the key role of GH200’s coherent memory in facilitating inference with larger batch sizes. GH200 helps open the way to advanced AI models, offering new possibilities for computational efficiency and scalability. At GTC, Lambda’s presentations will provide deeper insights into our GH200 deployments and findings, as well as our endeavors in developing RAG applications on the NVIDIA AI platform.
