AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 18 -- BOXX Technologies is leveraging its extensive experience in multi-GPU high-performance computing systems designed for cutting edge media creation to provide scientists, engineers and researchers with a GPU-based personal supercomputing capability. The BOXX Personal Supercomputer (PSC), which will be shown at the NVIDIA booth (#833) during this week's SC08 Conference, the top international conference for high performance computing (HPC), enables scientists and engineers to analyze immense datasets, apply complex algorithms and test alternative theories -- all on their desktop.
A product of BOXX's Innovative Integration process, the new BOXX Personal Supercomputer (PSC) is designed to accelerate the execution of highly parallelized computing tasks in biomedical research, oil & gas exploration, financial derivatives analysis and complex engineering. Researchers interested in accelerating time-to-discovery will find that the BOXX PSC delivers compact and quiet deskside GPU-based computing power.
"Boxx has built a personal supercomputer that delivers cluster class performance in a sleek chassis, making it a powerful and flexible solution for researchers wanting to unchain themselves from the datacenter," said Andrew Walsh, general manager of personal supercomputing at NVIDIA. "We are delighted to have them as provider of Tesla Personal Supercomputers."
Through the revolutionary NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing architecture powered by up to 960 processing cores, the BOXX PSC delivers nearly four TFLOPS of GPU computing power, offering computing performance 250 times faster than a standard PC. The BOXX PSC offers a space-saving desktop solution alternative to large clusters to meet the demands of the compute-intensive work these scientists require.
"Boxx has designed a workstation that is quiet and has an extremely reliable cooling system, which is essential for continuous computing. Our Personal Supercomputer comes with either Microsoft Windows or Linux operating systems pre-installed, required by a broader spectrum of scientific, medical, and engineering professionals," said Shoaib Mohammad, director of business development and international sales for BOXX Technologies.

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
