New Computer for Scientific Applications

Upgrading our Computer Infrastructure for High Performance Tasks

After having used Lambda Labs or AWS to rent powerful computing resources, we have decided to upgrade our internal infrastructure to allow in-house prototyping of machine learning algorithms.

After some thorough planning, we decided that it was best to upgrade our existing hardware instead of buying a completely new high performance computer. Hence, this November we have finally ordered and built our new computer code-named “Kant” after the German philosopher Immanuel Kant.

The computer runs on Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS.

The stats are as follows:

  • 12th Gen Intel i7-12700K
  • 72 Gb memory
  • 3.5 Tb of storage
  • Nvidia Titan X (Pascal) 12Gb

Below you can see some impressions. From the boxes that arrived up to the finished workstation:

The new machine will primarily be used for deep learning. If you have any cool ideas that align with our values and would benefit from such a machine, feel free to reach out to us!
