    Do Scan own the server or has NvEVIL (Artech articule) given it to them to showcase? Nvidia DGX-1 runs Ubuntu Server interesting so NO Percy it wont run Crysis P - Goes the DGX-1 use Nvlink ?

    Assuming you mean "Does" rather than "Goes" - the 8 P100 cards have coherent access to each other's memory via NVLink, but as the server is Xeon based the link between the P100 cluster and the rest of the system is PCIe only. AFAIK no CPU currently supports NVLink, and the first one that will is Power-based, rather than x86.

    Re: Scan providing access to DGX-1 Deep Learning Supercomputers

    RAID0 seems a weird choice. They have 4 drives, why not do a 5 drive RAID5. I suppose you don't really need redundancy for this sort of task as it's short lived usage

    Aside from that niggle, it seems a really good idea
