Return to Mandelbrot sets using a Supercomputer! – the Nvidia DGX-1

Put on that paisley shirt, play some Sgt Peppers, and lets explore Mandelbrot sets again….

Picture yourself in a goat on a river, With tanberine trees and marmalade skies

Five years have past since I last wrote about Mandelbrot sets, when I use two Nvidia Tesla K40s to generate the Mandelbrot set.

Both those GPUs had only 2,880 compute cores each, a total of 5,760, The Tesla V100 in the Nvidia DGX-1 has 5,120 cores per GPU, and there are 8 GPU, so a total of 40,960 cores.

Here is a video comparing 1 x CPU on the left and 8xGPUs on the right! The same Mandelbrot regions are explored in real time, left and right. The CPU is running at 5fps(150ms), and the GPUs at 50fps (3ms)
