Chinese tech giant Lenovo boosts AI efforts with Nvidia’s new servers

  • Lenovo has added new Nvidia GPU systems to its ThinkSystem servers and announced new computer workstations pre-installed with Nvidia chips.
  • Lenovo has doubled down on AI, with plans to “dramatically expand” its portfolio of AI devices through 2025.

Lenovo Group has unveiled a series of servers and computers powered by technology from US chip designer Nvidia, to bring artificial intelligence (AI) solutions to businesses and cloud service providers.

Servers applications

Lenovo said it has added two new Nvidia graphics-processing-unit (GPU) systems to its AI server series, ThinkSystem.  

The servers are designed to support professional users in developing generative AI and large language models – the technology underpinning ChatGPT and similar AI tools.

Under the two companies’ collaboration, Lenovo’s server clients can use Nvidia’s enterprise-facing generative AI software, the company said on Monday.

Customers can also access “microservices”, a set of new Nvidia tools that let developers create and deploy custom generative AI applications, Nvidia announced on the same day. 

On Monday, Lenovo also announced new computer workstations pre-installed with Nvidia GPUs and software that support industrial users, scientists, and developers in generative AI tasks.

The products are part of a partnership struck between Nvidia and Lenovo in October.

The Chinese company, which operates in more than 180 markets worldwide, has also vowed to put more financial and human resources into AI research and development.
