Delta Electronics Unveils Energy-Efficient AI Hardware at GTC

A recent NVIDIA GTC conference has not only highlighted the newest AI-related achievements, but has also done much more than that. It was also an opportunity to use AI as a channel for a critique on sustainability in a broader AI setting. Delta Electronics, a megastar in electrical and energy management solutions, becomes a leader in this talk by introducing amazing new hardware which is designed to decrease energy consumption in AI (artificial intelligence) data centers by a very large margin.

Such an invention comes at a crucial moment. The abnormally high rate of growth of AI has brought a frustrating problem to data centers that could lead to energy waste. The striking size of these very important data centers that power complex AI models is estimated to register a 200% increase per year by 2030. Disregarding the threat, Delta Electronics drew the spotlight at GTC 2019, unveiling a series of products that aim to make data centers power as efficiently as possible across the entire chain — from grid electricity down to individual AI processing chips.

Delta’s newly revealed hardware can thus be considered a giant step forward to become more environmentally friendly in AI. Let’s delve deeper into some of these cutting-edge solutions:Let’s delve deeper into some of these cutting-edge solutions:

  • Modular Power Architecture: Operating reliability is central: Delta’s ORV3 Racks are coupled with 50Vdc Busbars at the root of this AI system in regards to electricity supply distribution. The lineup of the energy generation process consists of these donkeys that are unsurpassed in efficiency, boasting superiority of nearly all energy loss up to 97.5%. In less than a minute, it will be able to meet the defined energy needs between the moment it enters the data center and the point reaches the AI hardware. Thanks to its modular architecture the power is minimized.
  • Revolutionizing Power Conversion for Power-Hungry GPUs: The inefficiencies observed in these traditional mechanisms of power supplying for the GPUs, the undisputed queen of AI process, is characterized by a considerable energy loss during the conversion. Since the company’s built-in DC-DC converters are a market breakthrough, they give out a strong reason to consider DC-powered household appliances. This way, distinctive converters deal with this problem directly, so the less energy loss can be acquired which might lead to achieving up to 15% savings. Moreover, this share is considerable as the demand of energy increases can’t be met by Power Grids.
  • Modular Solid State Transformers: Direct Delivery of Adaptive Efficiency on a Global Level: Besides the obvious efficiency via transformers, that are perfect for easily converting public electric supply into specific AI requests. Their unique modular build which can be applied for different power plot variations worldwide offers multifunctionality and adaptability. Thus it facilitates the harmonization of the machinery and technology in different regions and minimizes the need of initiating complicated adaptations to further increase the level of efficiency.
  • Uninterrupted Efficiency – Because Reliability and Sustainability Go Hand-in-Hand: As Delta’s UPS systems are under pressure and being stressed to the limits during the bothersome hours when data centers are pushed to their limits, it still holds an impressive efficiency rating of 97.5%. Consequently, this actual operation of AI centers do not make sacrifices in energy-saving performance. Delta realizes that having a system of power supply that is dependable, is crucial. This is the reason why they are leading in this field by delivering this promise while ensuring that their systems remain environmentally friendly.
