Intel’s next-generation AI accelerators will be supported by Vertiv liquid-cooled data center infrastructure solutions to help organizations accelerate AI adoption while achieving sustainability goals
Vertiv is collaborating with Intel to provide a liquid cooling solution that will support the new Intel Gaudi3 AI accelerator, scheduled to launch in 2024. AI applications and high-performance computing emit higher amounts of heat, and organizations are increasingly turning to liquid cooling solutions for more efficient and eco-friendly cooling options.
“The Intel Gaudi3 AI accelerator provides the perfect solution for a Vertiv and Intel collaboration. We continue to expand our broad liquid cooling portfolio, resulting in our ability to support leaders of next generation AI technologies, like Intel.”
John Niemann, SVP global thermal line of business at Vertiv.
The Intel Gaudi3 AI accelerator will enable both liquid-cooled and air-cooled servers, supported by Vertiv pumped two-phase (P2P) cooling infrastructure. The liquid cooled solution has been tested up to 160kW accelerator power using facility water from 17°C up to 45°C (62.6°F to 113°F). The air-cooled solution has been tested up to 40kW of heat load that can be deployed in warm ambient air data centers up to 35°C (95°F). This medium pressure direct P2P refrigerant-based cooling solution will help customers implement heat reuse, warm water cooling, free air cooling and reductions in power usage effectiveness (PUE), water usage effectiveness (WUE) and total cost of ownership (TCO).
“The Intel Gaudi3 AI accelerator provides the perfect solution for a Vertiv and Intel collaboration,” said John Niemann, SVP global thermal line of business at Vertiv. “Vertiv continues to expand our broad liquid cooling portfolio, resulting in our ability to support leaders of next generation AI technologies, like Intel. Vertiv helps customers accelerate the adoption of AI quickly and reliably, while also helping them to achieve sustainability goals.”
