Cray XE6 supercomputers to get NVIDIA Tesla 20 GPUs

Posted on Wednesday, September 22 2010 @ 17:18:35 CEST by

Supercomputer maker Cray announced it will put NVIDIA's next-generation Tesla 20-series into its large XE6 systems. The firm compares NVIDIA's GPUs to vector processors, they can't run every application efficiently, but they are phenomenal for certain type of applications.
Cray, which already uses Nvidia GPUs in its low-end desktop supercomputers, is targeting Nvidia's supercomputer-specific Tesla processors for accelerating "modeling code" for scientific applications in its Cray XE6 product line, according to Bolding.

"We're doing this because Nvidia is starting to produce accelerators (GPUs) that are useful to our customers. They've done some enhancements that go beyond a normal graphics accelerator. A couple of years ago, those (Nvidia) GPUs did not have functionality that was appealing to our customers."
