Sources suggest that December could be the month that NVIDIA’s Project Denver finds its way to silicon.
Adopting the ARM architecture would be a leap of faith for the x86 chip vendor, but perhaps a necessary one.
NVIDIA is set to release a new CUDA toolkit to developers this Friday with the 4th generation of its popular GPU software suite. The company says CUDA 4.0 is designed to make parallel programming simpler, thus bringing more application developers into the GPGPU fold. Some of the new capabilities also foreshadow Project Denver, the codename for the company’s future CPU-GPU architecture for workstations, servers, and supercomputers.
The inaugural edition of The Weekly Top Five covers the massive NEC storage installation at the French Brain & Spine Institute; the Platform HPC cloud survey; NVIDIA’s ARM-based CPU-GPU processor strategy; Glasgow’s thousand-core FPGA; and Whamcloud’s new talent.
