Field upgrades of the Firmware may be written into the flash memory.

NVIDIA BlueField-3 DPU provides innovative acceleration, security, and efficiency in every host. BlueField-3 data center infrastructure combines the power of the NVIDIA ConnectX-7 with programmable Arm® cores and hardware offloads for software-defined storage, networking, security, and management workloads. 
The NVIDIA BlueField-3 DPU enables RDMA and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) and GPUDirect® RDMA, which deliver high-performance, low-latency data transfer between servers and storage devices. By default, BlueField-3 DPU utilized its internal congestion control algorithm (ZTR-RTTCC).

NVIDIA BlueField-3 also delivers superior performance, security, and reduced TCO for cloud computing platforms, enabling organizations to efficiently build and operate virtualized, containerized, and bare-metal infrastructures at massive scale.
