SAN JOSE, Calif., May 30 -- Super Micro Computer, Inc., a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology and green computing, now offers NVIDIA Maximus technology in its latest high-end, enterprise-class X9 SuperWorkstation (7047GR-TRF), allowing users to simultaneously design, render and simulate on the same workstation, avoiding traditional, time-consuming and costly processing downtime. Supermicro's NVIDIA Maximus certified solution integrates an NVIDIA Quadro series graphics processing unit (GPU) dedicated for design and visualization tasks with four NVIDIA Tesla C2075 co-processors dedicated to handling compute-intensive tasks like simulation--an industry-first configuration of NVIDIA Maximus technology.
This powerful GPU duo delivers scientists, engineers and designers the specialized compute capacity to interact with 3D models in CAD/CAM applications, while simultaneously rendering or outputting complex CAE simulations. This ability to multitask with both compute and graphics-heavy applications together, in real time, on a single workstation dramatically accelerates productivity and allows more opportunities for creative exploration.
"Supermicro's NVIDIA Maximus certified 7047GR-TRF SuperWorkstation opens the door to personal supercomputing for scientific, engineering and entertainment fields, and closes the gap between design and realization," said Wally Liaw, Vice President of Sales, International at Supermicro. "Our solution allows users to free themselves from compute limitations and to challenge their creativity with an unprecedented four Tesla GPUs plus one Quadro GPU in a 4U Tower, more than any other system in this class on the market. With this incredible performance at the desktop, designers can spend more time interacting with complex models and sophisticated simulations and less time waiting, allowing them to deliver results faster to market."
"Supermicro's professional-level SuperWorkstations harness the power of NVIDIA Maximus technology to sharply improve productivity," said Jeff Brown, general manager of the Professional Solutions Group at NVIDIA. "Supermicro is outstanding at integrating NVIDIA GPU technology into their workstations, and the 7047GR-TRF marks only the start of their efforts to incorporate NVIDIA Maximus's power and flexibility."
What sets the 7047GR-TRF apart as an outstanding enterprise-class system and earns it the SuperWorkstation brand is its multitude of high-value features. Fully configured with 4 double-width NVIDIA Tesla GPUs and a Quadro graphics card, the 7047GR-TRF still has single PCI-E 3.0 x8 and PCI-E 2.0 x4 (in x8) slots available for additional high-bandwidth network and high-performance storage expansions. The 7047GR-TRF is built on Supermicro's high-end X9DRG-QF serverboard supporting dual Intel Xeon E5-2600 family processors for ultimate CPU performance. PCI-E 3.0 support offers future-proof expansion and a cost-effective upgrade path to next generation NVIDIA GPUs. For memory intensive applications, this solution accommodates up to 512GB of DDR3 1600MHz Reg. ECC memory in 16x DIMM sockets and massive internal storage capacity that supports up to 8x hot-swap 3.5" HDDs utilizing onboard 2x SATA3 and 8x SATA2 ports. Supporting this advanced technology and maintaining mission-critical uptime are redundant 1620W power supplies with the industry's highest efficiency Platinum Level (94 percent+) rating, along with multi-zone thermal controlled fans for optimal cooling and additional energy efficiency.
Supermicro's GPU SuperWorkstations and SuperServers are defining the future of supercomputing for intersecting fields of science, engineering and digital content creation. The 7047GR-TRF is the first of a line of SuperWorkstations to support NVIDIA Maximus technology.

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.
