High performance systems maker CIARA has announced that it will produce an AMD-based ORION HF server line, as well as customised Blockchain platforms, running on AMD’s high-performance processors, with GPU mining cards.
NVIDIA is among six technology companies to receive a total of US$258 funding from the US Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP).
The funding is to accelerate the development of next-generation supercomputers with the delivery of at least two exascale computing systems, one of which is targeted by 2021.
Such systems would be about 50 times more powerful than the US’ fastest supercomputer, Titan, located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
NVIDIA has unveiled the Tesla K80 dual-GPU accelerator designed for a wide range of machine learning, data analytics, scientific, and high performance computing (HPC) applications.
The Tesla K80 dual-GPU is the new flagship offering of the Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform, the leading platform for accelerating data analytics and scientific computing.
It combines the world’s fastest GPU accelerators, the widely used CUDA parallel computing model, and a comprehensive ecosystem of software developers, software vendors, and datacentre system OEMs.
