NVIDIA Announces Next-Generation OVX Computing Systems for Building a 3D Virtual World

NVIDIA has just announced the second generation of NVIDIA OVX™powered by next-generation GPU architecture and enhanced networking technology, for construction 3D virtual worlds using state-of-the-art 3D software applications and to operate immersive Double digital simulation in NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise — a scalable, end-to-end platform for enterprises to build and operate metaverse applications.

Launched last March, NVIDIA OVX – a computing system designed to power large-scale Omniverse digital twins – will be delivered to some of the world’s most sophisticated design and engineering teams at companies including BMW Group and Jaguar Land Rover. .

“Large-scale digital twins are redefining the way nearly every industry plans, designs and builds in the physical world,” said Bob Pette, vice president of professional visualization at NVIDIA. “NVIDIA OVX will deliver the next generation of computing power required for the most complex digital twins of factories, buildings, and entire cities.”

The new OVX systems are powered by the NVIDIA® L40 GPU, based on NVIDIA’s next-generation GPU architecture, which brings high levels of power and performance for building complex industrial digital twins.

The L40 GPU’s third-generation RT Cores and fourth-generation Tensor Cores will deliver powerful capabilities to Omniverse workloads running on OVX, including accelerated ray-traced and path-traced material rendering, physically accurate simulations, and a generation of photorealistic 3D synthetic data. The L40 will also be available in NVIDIA™ Certified System servers from major OEM vendors to power RTX workloads from the data center.

In addition to the L40 GPU, the new NVIDIA OVX includes the NVIDIA ConnectX®-7 SmartNIC, delivering improved network and storage performance and the precision synchronization required for realistic digital twins. ConnectX-7 includes support for 200G networking on each port and fast inline data encryption to speed up data movement and increase digital twin security.

Adopters around the world are accelerating performance

BMW Group and Jaguar Land Rover will be among the first equipped with the power of the new systems.

“Planning our factories of the future starts with building state-of-the-art digital twins using NVIDIA Omniverse,” said Jürgen Wittmann, Head of Innovation and Virtual Production at BMW Group. “Using NVIDIA OVX systems to run our digital twin workloads will provide the performance and scale needed to develop large-scale photorealistic models of our factories and run true-to-life simulations that

will transform our manufacturing, design and production processes.

“NVIDIA OVX and DRIVE Sim provide a powerful platform that allows us to simulate a wide range of real-world driving scenarios to safely and efficiently test our next generation of connected and autonomous vehicles as well as recreate the customer journey to demonstrate the vehicle features and functions,” said Alex Heslop, Director of Electrical, Electronic and Software Engineering at Jaguar Land Rover. “Using this technology to generate large volumes of high-fidelity, physically accurate scenarios in a scalable and profitable will accelerate our progress towards our goal of an accident-free future with less congestion.”

Computer system specifications

Each OVX server node combines eight NVIDIA L40 GPUs with three NVIDIA ConnectX-7 network adapters, bringing the power of a 100/200/400G network. For Omniverse workloads that require a higher level of performance and scalability, servers can be deployed in NVIDIA OVX POD and SuperPOD configurations with the NVIDIA Spectrum™-3 Ethernet platform.


Second-generation NVIDIA OVX systems will be available from Inspur, Lenovo, and Supermicro by early 2023, with GIGABYTE, H3C, and QCT offering them in the future.
