In this video from the 2015 RubyConf event in Columbia, Ray Hightower presents: Parallella Supercomputing. “Parallella is a single-board supercomputer smaller than a deck of cards. While today’s fastest laptops contain four processor cores, Parallella has eighteen (2 ARM cores plus an Epiphany chip with 16 RISC cores). The maker of Parallella, Adapteva, is on a mission to democratize parallel computing. The company’s tag line is Supercomputing for Everyone.”
Over at Parallella.org, Adapteva Founder & CEO Andreas Olofsson writes that the organization is seeking help from its user community to “help build the most efficient virtual supercomputer in the world this week.”
In this video from Primeur Magazine, Andreas Olofsson from Adapteva unveils the Adapteva A-1 prototype supercomputer at ISC’14. Based on the company’s 64-core Epiphany chip, the system sports a total 2112 RISC cores in a very small space while consuming only 200 Watts.
