Silicon Mechanics has announced the launch of its 3rd annual Research Cluster Grant Program, a competition for research institutions to win a pre-configured HPC cluster.
“As for chemistry and life sciences, we see it as a vibrant and dynamic field that’s constantly evolving — from using nanotechnology and new materials to deliver drugs to unraveling the mysteries of how cells work. We definitely have our eye on those new technologies that are revolutionizing the field such as next generation sequencing (NGS). NGS allows for the analysis of genetic material with unprecedented speed and efficiency and is well suited for HPC.”
“Some of you might be wondering whether Kaveri is good for HPC applications. Compared to discrete GPUs, applications that are already ported and work well on discrete GPUs will continue to be best run on discrete GPUs. However, Kaveri and HSA will enable many more applications to be GPU accelerated.”
“The new system will enable researchers to solve ever more complex problems, be it in the search for new materials, in the prediction of climate changes, or in other disciplines. With the planned GPU acceleration, the application performance and the energy efficiency of our simulations will improve significantly. We are very excited about the collaborative development with Cray and NVIDIA of a truly general purpose hybrid multi-core system.”
“The new server will enable the processing of 20 exomes per hour, “a 60-fold increase in speed,” said Michael Zwick, an associate professor of human genetics and scientific director of the Emory Integrated Genomics Core.
Now that the recent CES Conference has us all thinking that 4K displays are state-of-the-art, I thought it might be a good time to show this video of the hyperwall-2 at NASA. This 128-screen tiled LCD wall is arranged in a 8×16 configuration that measures 23-ft. wide by 10-ft. high. The display system is connected to […]
