Over at The Register, Timothy Prickett Morgan writes that SGI has reworked its high-end UV 2000 shared memory supers and its Rackable hyperscale machines to include the latest Intel Xeon Phi and
Nvidia Kepler coprocessors.
Initially, SGI is allowing for up to 32 of these accelerator blades to be added to a UV 2000 system. In an all-Xeon setup, the UV 2000 can support a maximum of 256 single-node processors for a total of 2,048 Xeon E5 cores and 64TB of memory. What would be even more interesting is for SGI to push the NUMALink 6 to its full 512-socket theoretical limit and offer a 256 CPU by 256 accelerator configuration.
