Boston Limited to Offer NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU Accelerators in Venom Server Line

November 18, 2013

DENVER, Colo., Nov. 18 — Boston Limited, now in its 20th year as distribution partner for Super Micro Computer, today announced that it will offer the NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU Accelerator in its Venom GPU Compute range. Boston’s Venom 8 Series solutions are the latest supercomputing, hybrid servers designed by Boston – powered by up to eight NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU’s, dual Intel Xeon E5-2600 V2 series processors and up to 768GB DDR-3 registered memory, all housed within Supermicro’s highly efficient, ultra-dense 4U 8-GPU SuperServer. For more information and to see a demonstration highlighting the benefits of NVIDIA’s new Tesla GPU accelerator cards, please visit Boston at SC13, stand #441.

The NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU Accelerator is the world’s highest-performing, most energy-efficient GPU, bringing breakthrough levels of performance to a range of new and existing scientific, engineering, HPC, and enterprise big data analytics applications. Providing double the memory capacity of its predecessor (the Tesla K20X GPU accelerator) and 10x the performance of today’s fastest CPU, the Tesla K40 GPU is the world’s first accelerator optimised for big data analytics and large scale scientific workloads.

Alongside the increased memory capacity and improved CUDA core count over the Tesla K20x (from 2,668 to 2,880 cores), developers and researchers are also able to benefit from NVIDIA’s GPU Boost technology; enabling end-users to turn power headroom into additional performance.

NVIDIA GPU Boost can deliver dramatic performance improvements to HPC workloads, such as AMBER for computational chemistry and ANSYS for engineering. With two steps of faster clock-speeds available, users can increase the speed by over 15% if the power headroom is available.

Mr. Manoj Nayee, Managing Director of Boston Limited, comments that “Boston’s Venom GPU solutions harness NVIDIA technology to help solve the most challenging computational problems, and the Tesla K40 GPU Accelerator delivers vast performance improvements to a range of scientific and engineering applications.”

“With Boston’s Venom servers, based on Supermicro’s new 8-GPU server platform and featuring NVIDIA Tesla K40’s, GPU enabled applications can run significantly faster as users are able to process large datasets with a massively multi-threaded computing architecture.”

For more information and to learn more about Boston’s NVIDIA Tesla K40-based Venom 8 Series solutions, please visit Boston at SC13 (booth #441) from 18-21st November.
