In a definitive move underscoring Taiwan’s technological prowess, Nvidia has announced the launch of two cutting-edge systems at the Computex event in Taipei. The Taiwania 4 and Taipei-1, bolstered by Nvidia’s latest Grace and Hopper generation hardware, are set to revolutionize high-performance computing in the region.

Taiwania 4, built by Asus, will be hosted at Taiwan’s National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC). Fitted with 44 Grace CPU Superchip nodes, it promises unprecedented energy efficiency, making it one of the most eco-friendly CPU-based supercomputers in Asia. Taiwania 4 will primarily support vital atmospheric modeling initiatives, aligning with global efforts to combat climate change.

Taipei-1, owned and operated by Nvidia, will boast 64 DGX H100 systems and 64 OVX systems. With a remarkable array of applications from healthcare and robotics to climate science, Taipei-1 will serve a broad spectrum of industries. National Taiwan University researchers will leverage this supercomputer for various projects, notably research on speech learning by large language models.

Nvidia also introduced the Helios and Israel-1 systems, but the spotlight remains on Taiwan’s technological achievement. The launch of these supercomputers marks a significant stride in Taiwan’s tech journey, reinforcing the island nation’s position at the forefront of innovation.
