Print Friendly, PDF & Email


In this slidecast, Nvidia’s Roy Kim and Andy Walsh provide an update on the all-new Tesla 2090 HPC processor.

In the latest version of AMBER 11, one of the most widely used applications used by scientific researchers for simulating behaviors of biomolecules, four Tesla M2090 GPUs delivered record performance of 69 nanoseconds of simulation per day. The fastest AMBER performance recorded on a CPU-based supercomputer was 46 ns/day. “This is the fastest result ever reported. With Tesla M2090 GPUs, AMBER users from a university department can now accelerate their scientific work as if they had a supercomputer in their own lab,” said Ross Walker, assistant research professor at the San Diego Computer Center, and principle contributor to the AMBER code.

The Tesla M2090 GPU will be available in servers including the new HP ProLiant SL390 G7, which incorporates up to eight Tesla M2090 GPUs in a half-width 4U chassis. Read the Full Story.
