IBM Power System AC922: HPC through Power9

The IBM Power System AC922 is designed as a powerful AI training platform. The IBM server offers a variety of innovative technologies for fastest data processing and highest data throughput. This includes:

  • The Power9 chip is the latest generation of IBM high-performance processors. It operates at 1.5 times the speed of its Power8 predecessor.
  • The IBM Power System AC922 is the first server with PCIe Gen4 connection standard. PCIe Gen4 delivers twice the bandwidth of PCIe Gen3 used in x86 servers.
  • In addition to PCIe Gen 4, the AC922 server has other advanced I/O connections such as CAPI 2.0, OpenCAPI and NVIDIA NVLink.
  • The IBM Power System AC922 connects the IBM Power9 CPU and NVIDIA's Tesla V100 with the NVLink GPUs. This results in a 5.6 times higher data throughput compared to x86 systems.

The Power AC922 server in the MEGWARE Benchmark Center

MEGWARE operates an IBM Power AC922 in its Benchmark Center. The system connects 2 x 20 Core 2.2 GHz Power9 CPUs and 2 x NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs (16 GB HBM2) with NVLink. This enables very high bandwidths between CPU and GPGPU.

Further equipment includes a 256 GB DDR4-2666 memory (16 x 16 GB) and 2 x 960 GB SSD drives.
