SAN JOSE, Calif., March 21 — During the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference 2013, SECO unveiled in a first-ever preview of its latest energy-efficient DevKit – powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 3-based Qseven module on a Mini ITX form factor carrier board – the SECO mITX GPU DevKit.
The SECO mITX GPU DevKit is a GPU computing development kit designed to support the growing worldwide demand for power-efficient ARM/ and ARM+GPU HPC and server solutions. Integrating a PCI Express x4 interface on PCI-e x16, the SECO mITX GPU DevKit allows the use of a range of NVIDIA GPUs, including those based on the NVIDIA Kepler compute architecture.
The SECO mITX GPU DevKit will support the recently announced NVIDIA Kayla platform for computing on the ARM architecture, which is expected to be available this spring. The Kayla platform is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra quad-core ARM processor and a Kepler GPU to deliver the highest performance and highest efficiency for next-generation of CUDA and OpenGL applications.
"In a world where power-hungry hardware is becoming more and more a liability, the new SECO mITX GPU DevKit enables software developers to explore the world of low power and high performance ARM/GPU based applications," said Alessandro Santini, SECO’s HPC sales manager.
“ARM CPUs when combined with the compute power of GPUs can deliver maximum performance per watt,” said Ian Buck, general manager of GPU computing software at NVIDIA. “The SECO mITX GPU DevKit makes it easy for programmers to develop new CUDA-based applications for mobile devices, HPC servers and a broad range of other systems.”
SECO, a world-leading company in electronics embedded solutions, with over 30 years of experience has shown the ability to adapt its know-how to new, challenging customer needs, and to provide cutting-edge solutions to its partners.
Focusing on the highest quality standards, SECO has been able to maintain the entire production cycle in Italy, from the development stage to mass distribution.
Thanks to extensive research and design activities in cooperation with academia and leading companies worldwide, SECO has become a global market-leading company providing innovative solutions to the modern challenges of this industry.
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.
Supercomputing veteran, Bo Ewald, has been neck-deep in bleeding edge system development since his twelve-year stint at Cray Research back in the mid-1980s, which was followed by his tenure at large organizations like SGI and startups, including Scale Eight Corporation and Linux Networx. He has put his weight behind quantum company....
