 Lenovo ThinkSystem AI Servers: Catapulting Generative AI Inference and Efficiency with NVIDIA

Marking a game-changing milestone in efficiently supercharging AI-workloads at scale, Lenovo unveiled the expansion of the Lenovo ThinkSystem AI portfolio, featuring two new powerful 8-way NVIDIA GPU systems that are purpose-built to deliver massive computational capabilities with uncompromised power efficiency to accelerate AI implementation. Engineered for generative AI, natural language processing (NLP), and large language model (LLM) development, with time-to-market support for the NVIDIA HGX AI supercomputing platform, including NVIDIA H100 and H200 Tensor Core GPUs and the all-new NVIDIA Grace Blackwell GB200 Superchip, as well as the advanced, next-generation NVIDIA Quantum-X800 InfiniBand and Spectrum-X800 Ethernet networking platforms.

Lenovo ThinkSystem AI servers with NVIDIA B200 Tensor Core GPUs are set to power the new era of generative AI. The NVIDIA Blackwell architecture’s generative AI Engine, alongside the faster NVIDIA NVLink interconnect and enhanced security capabilities, propel the data center into a new era. With up to 25X more real-time inference to accelerate trillion-parameter language models, B200 GPUs are designed for the most demanding AI, data analytics and HPC workloads.

With an ultra-efficient power usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.1., the new Lenovo ThinkSystem SR780a V3 is a 5U system that uses Lenovo Neptune liquid cooling. By using direct water cooling of CPU and GPUs and NVIDIA NVSwitch technology, the system can sustain maximum performance without hitting any thermal limits. For more than a decade, Lenovo’s industry-leading Lenovo Neptune direct water-cooling solution, which recycles loops of warm water to cool data center systems, enabling customers to realize up to a 40% reduction in power consumption and a 3.5x improvement in thermal efficiencies compared to traditional air-cooled systems.

Also accelerating the portfolio, the new Lenovo ThinkSystem SR680a V3 is an air-cooled, two-socket system built for maximum acceleration for complex AI with Intel processors and a choice of NVIDIA GPUs. The highly accelerated systems deliver massive computational capability and use industry-standard 19-inch server racks, allowing for dense hardware configurations that maximize efficiency without occupying excessive floor space or requiring shelving. For high-performance inference on popular AI models from NVIDIA and its ecosystem, customers can run the NVIDIA NIM inference microservices included in NVIDIA AI Enterprise on Lenovo enterprise infrastructure.

The portfolio includes Lenovo’s XClarity Systems Management, giving businesses a simplified and centralized resource management system, as well as Lenovo’s Intelligent Computing Orchestration (LiCO), a unified platform that streamlines use of clustered computing resources for AI model development and training and HPC workloads. The portfolio also supports the 4th and 5th generation of Intel Xeon Scalable Processors and provides thermal headroom for future higher-power GPUs.
