NVIDIA hold hands with Arm and tech leaders on GPU-accelerated servers

NVIDIA’s new reference design platform enables companies to build GPU-accelerated Arm servers for running a broad range of applications, from hyperscale-cloud to exascale supercomputing and beyond.NVIDIA has teamed up with Arm and a host of tech leaders to introduce a reference design platform for enterprises to quickly build GPU-accelerated Arm-based servers.

Cray to build world’s fastest supercomputer for US government

The race to have the world’s fastest supercomputer has taken on a new spin with the US Department of Energy commissioning Cray to build the most powerful yet by 2021. Called Frontier, the new 1.5-exaflop supercomputer will be built on built on Cray’s Shasta supercomputing platform using AMD EPYC CPUs and Radeon Instinct GPUs.

New NVIDIA Tesla K40 speeds up supercomputing and big data analytics

NVIDIA Tesla K40The NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU accelerator is arguably the world’s highest performance accelerator ever built. It is capable of delivering extreme performance to a wide range of scientific, engineering, high performance computing (HPC), and enterprise applications.

Providing double the memory and up to 40 percent higher performance than its predecessor, the Tesla K20X GPU accelerator, and 10 times higher performance than the fastest CPU, the Tesla K40 GPU is the world’s first and highest-performance accelerator optimised for big data analytics and large-scale scientific workloads.

Featuring intelligent NVIDIA GPU Boost technology, which converts power headroom into a user-controlled performance boost, the Tesla K40 GPU accelerator enables users to unlock the untapped performance of a broad range of applications.
