GPU Systems Win 8th Straight Student Cluster Competition

For the eighth time running, an NVIDIA GPU accelerator-based system powered the winning team in a major international student cluster competition. “Besides powering the overall winning system, NVIDIA GPUs led the University of Edinburgh to achieve a record score on HPC industry standard Linpack performance benchmark. The team’s Tesla K40 GPU-powered system reached 10.14 teraflops —the first time any student cluster team has hit this mark within the competition’s three-kilowatt power budget.”
