GPUs inside 90 percent of new HPC server installations

Posted on Friday, November 27 2009 @ 01:05:37 CET by

Bright Side of News chatted with several HPC (High-performance computing) system makers and learned GPGPU technology is booming, the site says about 90 percent of new HPC installations on order will feature at least one GPU board or whole GPGPU server for evaluation purposes. Additionally, BSN also noticed at the SC09 conference in Portland that even Intel is promoting GPU technology.
Thus, a picture where Intel Corporation, maker of 80% CPUs inside all Top500 systems is promoting GPGPU was somewhat a surprise to us. At first, small-scale events such as SC09 aren't the ones clad by deceiving clouds of marketers and marketing messages but events where multi-million dollar contracts are signed and where there is business - there is no talk for "messaging".

As an example of the ideal link between Intel's Xeon 5500 processors and GPGPU products, Intel was promoting HP ProLiant DL160se G6 server, and the demos in front of the panel were all performed by nVidia Quadro FX 5800 and Tesla C1060 boards. According to Intel, ProLiant DL160se G6 should pack up to six GPUs in a single server.
