France building 300 TFLOPS supercomputer with NVIDIA GPUs

Posted on Tuesday, April 22 2008 @ 18:09:05 CEST by

The French Grand Équipement National de Calcul Intensif (Genci) is building the first supercomputer that uses GPUs.

The source is in French but it seems the idea behind the new supercomputer from Genci is to build the most powerful machine you can get with a budget of 25 million euros.

The supercomputer will be a hybrid system with 1068 eight-core Nehalem processors from Intel and 48 GPU modules from NVIDIA to achieve a maximum level of parallel computing.

The Intel processors will deliver a theoretical computing power of 103 TFLOPS while the NVIDIA GPUs will deliver 192 TFLOPS. It's not sure which GPUs will be used but PCInpact believes it will be a Tesla solution from NVIDIA with two GT200 GPUs per module.
