The energy consumption, data volume and velocity requirements are giving way to new, more efficient and higher bandwidth approaches, including Volta, which was revealed during the keynote event.

Penguin Pushes Envelope on Compute Density

Mar 21, 2013 |

<img src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Penguin_Computing_logo_172x.jpg” alt=”” width=”101″ height=”59″ />Penguin Computing keeps finding increasing demand for servers that go heavy on the GPUs (or other coprocessors). Based on feedback from one such customer, it has designed the Relion 2808GT server, which it says now has the highest compute density of any server on the market.

Swiss ‘GPU Supercomputer’ Will Be Fastest in Europe

Mar 19, 2013 |

Clouds Considered at Upcoming GPU Technology Conference

Mar 21, 2011 |

Cloud computing is on the agenda for October’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC ’11) following a year full of news and case studies highlighting GPU-powered cloud resources.

GPU Acceleration for the On-Demand Era

Sep 28, 2010 |

There is increasing convergence between the once disparate worlds of GPUs and HPC. This gap is closing, particularly now that scientific and enterprise users are being granted access to GPU acceleration via on-demand HPC and GPU-driven services. Such offerings are expected to grow along with a rise in the number of applications available, marking what might be a new era for HPC and GPGPU both individually and as a unit.

GPU Technology on Center Stage at GTC ’10

Sep 27, 2010 |

At this year’s GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, GPU computing in the scientific and technical research space took center stage, almost to the point where it became possible, at least for a moment, to forget the gaming roots and movement from the mainstream to the deeply technical.

GPGPU Finds Its Groove in HPC

Sep 21, 2010 |

The NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC) kicked off on Tuesday amid a flurry of news that suggests the GPGPU HPC business is quickly moving into the mainstream. After just four years since the introduction of commercial-grade GPU computing, the technology has become firmly established and is poised to spill out across every application domain that has a need for data-parallel computing.
