Tesla is not @Nvidia's only #HPC processor #GPU

Tesla is not Nvidia’s only HPC processor no comment richard wilson 29th November 2014 Get news by email Graphics processor firm Nvidia sees a big opportunity for its GPUs in high performance computing (HPC), sometimes referred to as supercomputing. Nvidia-Tesla-K80 GPUs differ from the CPUs of Intel, IBM and AMD used in PCs and servers because they at every good at number-crunching. That is GPUs are designed to process data very quickly, but do not have the programmable flexibility of CPUs. Maybe a decade ago research showed that by using many GPUs in a low latency (ie with high speed interconnect) it was possible to create a powerful number-crunching supercomputer for a fraction of the cost of bespoke HPC hardware. Nvidia has seized the opportunity. It designed a new type of high-end GPU called Tesla, which was good at being cascaded in an HPC array. Part of the Tesla Acc...
