Today NVIDIA announced that the company’s Tesla GPU accelerators are powering the world’s two most energy efficient supercomputers, based on the newly published Green500 list. Raw performance is no longer the exclusive measure of the value and impact of supercomputers,” said Sumit Gupta, general manager of the Tesla Accelerated Computing Business Unit at NVIDIA. “All […]

Today at ISC’13, Nvidia announced a collaboration with Stanford University to create the world’s largest artificial neural network built to model how the human brain learns. At 6.5 times bigger than the previous record-setting network developed by Google in 2012, the neural net will be capable of “learning” how to model the behavior of the […]
The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) at Daresbury in the U.K. has entered an agreement with Nvidia to help develop software for next-generation hybrid supercomputers. This agreement combines NVIDIA’s leading-edge GPU accelerator technologies and HPC expertise with STFC’s software development expertise,” said David Corney, acting director of STFC’s Department of Scientific Computing. “This unique […]
Nvidia made waves in March with the announcement of the Kayla development platform for CUDA on ARM processors. Next week at ISC’13 in Germany, E4 Computer Engineering will demonstrate its new, low-power E4 ARKA SERIES, a Kayla device equipped with an Nvidia Tegra Quad-Core ARM A9 CPU as well as an Nvidia GPU. For the […]

A high-performance server cluster is enabling researchers at the Institute for Computational Cosmology (ICC), based at Durham University and throughout the wider UK astrophysics community, to better understand the universe by allowing them to model phenomena ranging from solar flares to the formation of galaxies. The cluster is part of the DiRAC (Distributed Research using […]
Scientific Computing is featuring an interview with Bill Dally, Nvidia’s Chief Scientist and Senior Vice President of Research. Dally will keynote ISC’13 with a talk entitled “Future Challenges of Large-Scale Computing.” The biggest impediment to innovation is legacy software. Many innovations are held back by the need for backward compatibility — or by the excessive […]
Today Indiana University unveiled the Big Red II supercomputer, a hybrid petascale Cray system. There are other universities that hold legal title to computers as fast or faster than Big Red II, but IU is the first in the world to have its own one petaFLOPS supercomputer as a dedicated university resource,” said Craig Stewart, […]
In this video from the 2013 GPU Technology Conference, Dustin Franklin from GE Intelligent Platforms presents: GPUDirect Support for RDMA and Green Multi-GPU Architectures. View the GE Presentation Slides on Slideshare. This talk caused quite a stir and we have done a number of posts on it including a Radio Free HPC podcast. Note that […]
