India’s compute infra less than 2% of global capacity: Nvidia Asia South MD

India’s computing infrastructure is less than 2 per cent of global capacity which is a limiting factor in its contribution to research that remains in the range of 2 per cent, according to a senior official of GPU chip maker NVIDIA.
While speaking at StartUp Mahakumbh, NVIDIA Asia South MD Vishal Dhupar on Monday said that the contribution of research from Indians abroad is around 12 per cent due to the availability of computing infrastructure.
“India today is approximately sub-2 per cent as compared to US and China combined is closer to 58-59 per cent. If you go back and figure out why the research in India is as low as,what it is, we are talking about India’s contribution, of 2 per cent. There is a direct correlation to that. Indians who basically contribute to the research bit are not based in India are contributing 12 pc because infrastructure is available there,” Dhupar said.
The demand for GPU-based servers or accelerated computing has increased as they can process data at a .
