Deep Learning

Data scientists and artificial intelligence (AI) researchers require accuracy, simplicity, and speed for deep learning success. Faster training and iteration ultimately means faster innovation and faster time to market. The NVIDIA DGX-1™ system is the first system built with groundbreaking NVIDIA® Tesla® P100 accelerators, powered by NVIDIA Pascal™ and interconnected with NVIDIA NVLink™. Pascal was designed as the engine of computers that learn, see, and simulate our world—a world with an infinite appetite for computing. The performance of the NVIDIA DGX-1 system is revolutionary. It would take 250 CPU systems, with the most advanced networking, to achieve the results of the NVIDIA DGX-1. It’s the world’s most advanced deep learning supercomputer ever built with a brand new GPU architecture that delivers the world’s fastest compute node.

RAVE’s award-winning engineering and product development teams specialize in configuring hardware that is optimized for Simulation and Training environments. Keeping cost and innovative trends in mind, RAVE offers new technologies that increase throughput and upgrade client capabilities. Our expertise in the S&T industry is demonstrated by our ability to advise clients and build hardware solutions that utilize cutting-edge components configured for Live, Virtual and Constructive simulation environments including – combat tactical trainers, aviation, driver trainers, mobile trainers and law enforcement, just to name a few. Working with our team at RAVE positions clients ahead of their competition.

RAVE’s engineering and product development teams are experts at balancing system characteristics with price, performance and other factors such as:

  • Physical size
  • Acoustic output (Quiet)
  • Classified / Unclassified (Removable drives, enable / disable I/O Ports etc., TPM Trusted Platform Module)
  • Locked-in BIOS, BIOS Settings
  • Application Software Load
  • Customer Image Load
  • Disk setup / partition scheme
  • Frame rendering speed
  • Image quality and accuracy
  • Component availability/lifecycle management (Long Life, Embedded)
  • Power draw/thermal management
  • Custom Configuration at the Cost of Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS)
  • Locked in Bill-of-Material (BOM) (Standardization / Commonality)
  • Integration procedures for added stability (Ruggedized COTS)
  • Custom Labeling (I/O Ports, Branding)
  • Component Compatibility Testing
  • GFE, Government Furnished Equipment
  • Quick turnaround
  • Obsolescence / Inventory Management

Custom Configuration at the Cost of Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS)

RAVE builds computers specifically based on client requirements, reducing costs by using commercially available components that are configured with optimal performance in mind. RAVE will manufacture custom components only when a commercial-off-the-shelf solution is not available or upon customer request. There’s an intelligent flexibility clients receive from RAVE experts that they simply cannot find with other major manufacturers.

Locked in Bill-of-Material (BOM)

RAVE maintains strict bill-of-materials guidelines for every computer we build. We will not change internal components without customer consent. This benefits our customers because product configuration is maintained and guaranteed; assuring that software performance meets strict guidelines and performs as promised.

Bill-of-Materials Assessment

If you currently have a Bill-of-Materials on a system and would like to see how RAVE stacks up with a COTS equivalent, you can goto our Free System Assessment page and see how we can help.

Did You Know?

RAVE Computer was awarded first place and recognized as the Intel® Top Innovative Channel Partner in North America for the category of Most Innovative Server/Workstation Solution. Rave’s winning entry was a 2U rackmount computer built to power a high-end vehicle simulator.

Take Advantage of Our Pre-configured, Optimized Systems

Often, our clients leverage RAVE’s pre-tested, filed, proven product lines of image generators and supporting servers; eliminating costly product development and testing. The systems above are pre-test and field proven, thousands operating in various environments today. If you don’t see exactly what you are looking for, utilize our product configurator form, or call us today and our product development team will quickly customize a solution that meets your requirements.


Initially, the team at RAVE functions as a technology consultant, then as a manufacturer, focused on creating complete system solutions. The consultative process begins when RAVE’s team of product engineers thoroughly explore individual challenges and work with customers to identify the best-balanced solution which includes factors such as technical capabilities, life cycle, form factor and environment.
