I think that picture is incorrect. It shows NVlink only between the
GPUS, but the text accompanying it states
"plans to integrate a high-speed interconnect, called NVIDIA® NVLink™,
into its future GPUs, enabling GPUs and CPUs to share data five to 12
times faster than they can today."
This is in disagreement with the illustration. I think someone included
the wrong illustration by accident, or drew it wrong. Is there anyone
from NVidia on this list that can provide clarity here?
