New GPU nodes

UF Research Computing has received twenty new GPU nodes to be put into production to work alongside the existing infrastructure of nVidia K80 nodes.

The nodes each consist of two Intel Xeon Gold 6142 CPUs, 192GB of RAM, and 8x nVidia GeForce RTX 2080 GPUs.

Initial testing of the first ten nodes has completed, and these nodes have been released to the cluster. Initial use of these first nodes are going to a special project and testing of the CUDA 10 upgrade currently in progress.

It is expected that the second set of ten nodes will be released to the public in the beginning week of September.
