L40 vs H100 - what is best for me

With H100 lead times being extremely high - let’s take a look at the more available L40 GPU.

The L40 GPU has the following benefits over the H100 GPU:

  • It is more power efficient, which means it can run for longer periods of time without overheating.

  • It is more available - L40s are more available and we find this to be a critical issue right now.

  • It has a higher memory bandwidth, which means it can process more data at once.

  • It has a higher number of cores, which means it can handle more complex tasks.

  • It is more affordable, making it a good option for businesses on a budget.

However, the H100 GPU does have some advantages over the L40 GPU, such as:

  • It has a higher theoretical peak performance.

  • It supports more advanced features, such as sparsity and tensor cores.

  • It is more scalable, meaning it can be used in larger systems.

Ultimately, the best GPU for you will depend on your specific needs and budget. We can build out quick to deploy GPU systems, all based on what you need.
