RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 6 -- James River Technical, Inc. (JRTI) and Velocity Micro today announced the immediate availability of a full line of high performance computing workstation platforms based on the Tesla parallel computing engine from NVIDIA. The new Visual Supercomputer (VSC) will deliver unprecedented computational power to a user's desktop, making HPC capabilities available to a much broader market across all industries and scientific research disciplines.
Consisting of three custom configurable models, the VSC Series is priced from $3,995 to $16,995 and will deliver from 1 to near 4 teraflops of computing power in a mid to full-sized tower PC. Preloaded with the NVIDIA CUDA development environment and a choice of Microsoft Windows XP 64-bit or Fedora Core 8, the VSC Series is the most powerful desktop computer available to the market and marks the resurgence of the scientific workstation in the market place. With the integration of a wide range of HPC graphics options, the VSC Series will bring a high level of interaction to the end user's workflow, allowing for a highly visual and computationally intensive capability designed to reduce time to discovery.

"We've leveraged our renowned engineering for high end computing and graphics to deliver a truly revolutionary new level of performance and affordability," said Randy Copeland, president & CEO of Velocity Micro. "The VSC Series brings unprecedented computational power within the reach of a wide new audience of scientists, researchers, educators, and designers. JRTI is the perfect partner to bring these innovations to the communities requiring this level of power."
"JRTI is pleased to be working with Velocity Micro, a recognized leader in high performance workstations, and NVIDIA, the world leader in visual computing and HPC solutions, in the launch of the VSC," states Leo Iantosca, CEO of JRTI. "VSC is a game changer in that it further democratizes HPC capabilities for a much wider range of users. Our goal is to accelerate the pace of discovery across all areas of research from life sciences, medical imaging, oil & gas, product design and beyond. The economies of scale achievable with the VSC exceed anything imaginable in the past several years -- delivering the power of multi-node clusters to the desktop at an affordable price point."
