When it comes to artificial intelligence -- just the task of exploring and experimenting with such advanced technology -- there's a lot required and the NVIDIA DGX-1 system hopes to step up to the plate. The NVIDIA DGX-1 system is essentially an enclosure for an 8-GPU supercomputing cluster, which focus on deep learning applications. By packaging it in such a way, it hopes to meet the needs of AI researchers.

With its own built-in neural network training software that researchers can use or not use, the NVIDIA DGX-1 system provides a lot of support to such endeavors. Of course, such delving into deep learning and AI costs a pretty penny. A single unit costs costs $129,000 -- but isn't the future priceless?
