NVIDIA Corporation and IBM to Collaborate on GPU-Enabled Power Systems
Nov 26 13
NVIDIA Corporation, and IBM have announced plans to collaborate on GPU-accelerated versions of IBM's portfolio of enterprise software applications on IBM Power Systems. By combining IBM POWER8 CPUs with GPU accelerators, the companies aim to deliver a new class of technology that maximizes performance and efficiency for all types of scientific, engineering, big data analytics and other high performance computing (HPC) workloads. IBM Power Systems will fully support existing scientific, engineering and visualization applications developed with the NVIDIA CUDA programming model, allowing supercomputing centers and HPC customers to immediately take advantage of groundbreaking performance advantages. IBM also plans to make its Rational brand of enterprise software development tools available to supercomputing developers, making it easier for programmers to develop cutting-edge applications.
NVIDIA Launches Accelerator for Supercomputing and Big Data Analytics
Nov 18 13
NVIDIA unveiled the NVIDIA(r) Tesla(r) K40 GPU accelerator, the performance accelerator ever built, delivering extreme performance to a widening range of scientific, engineering, high performance computing (HPC) and enterprise applications. Providing double the memory and up to 40% higher performance than its predecessor, the Tesla K20X GPU accelerator, and 10 times higher performance than today's CPU, the Tesla K40 GPU is the world's first and highest-performance accelerator optimized for big data analytics and large-scale scientific workloads. Featuring intelligent NVIDIA GPU Boost(TM) 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.
IBM to Start Using Nvidia's Tesla Graphics Chips in Servers with Power Chips from 2014
Nov 18 13
Starting 2014, IBM will start using Nvidia's Tesla graphics chips in servers with Power chips, which have been used in Watson and supercomputers like Sequoia. Nvidia's Tesla graphics processors have been used alongside CPUs in some of the supercomputers to accelerate technical computing. The addition of GPUs to Power servers would be new; previous servers were boosted by vector co-processors, FPGAs (field-programmable gate arrays) and other circuitry. In addition to supercomputers, the combination of Power processors and Nvidia GPUs could speed up mainframes used for critical tasks like financial transaction processing. The addition of Tesla to IBM's Power CPUs in servers will help customers process and analyze data faster. IBM plans to deploy Power-based rack based servers with Nvidia's GPUs as early as 2014.
