The Lenovo ThinkSystem SR670 V2 is a versatile GPU-rich 3U rack server that supports eight double-wide GPUs including the new NVIDIA A100 and A40 Tensor Core GPUs, or the NVIDIA HGX A100 4-GPU offering with NVLink and Lenovo Neptune hybrid liquid-to-air cooling. The server is based on the new third-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor family (formerly codenamed “Ice Lake”) and the new Intel Optane Persistent Memory 200 Series.

The server delivers optimal performance for Artificial Intelligence (AI), High Performance Computing (HPC) and graphical workloads across an array of industries. Retail, manufacturing, financial services and healthcare industries can leverage the processing power of the GPUs in the SR670 V2 to extract greater insights and drive innovation utilizing machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL).
