2010/05/22 15:24 Steven Algieri GPU Processing goes mainstream For years, GPU processing (the use of high performance video cards for general purpose computing) has been the preserve of academic and niche commercial research. As the tools have improved, the march towards this technology has become more pronounced. , , , , , ,
2010/06/01 02:19 Steven Algieri HPC FlashForward - Nvidia, Mellanox and Intel [Die shot of Aubrey Isle silicon. Aubrey isle is the codename of the silicon chip included the 'Knights Ferry' Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture development platform.] We've been a great fan of the FlashForward series, which finished it's current series in the UK last night. Trying to guess what the writers have in store for us, having already told us, is an interesting challenge. , , , , , ,
2010/08/24 01:29 Richard Donovan GPU Network router delivers breakthrough performance We've been covering GPU's for some time. They are turning up in all sorts of interesting high performance areas. In a new twist, researchers in South Korea have now built a GPU based networking router that can transmit and interrogate data at record speeds. ,
2010/11/30 02:24 Richard Donovan Intel Not Going to Quit the GPU Acceleration Race Nvidia has been making significant in-roads into the high performance supercomputing market, making the GPU acceleration almost implicit in the latest generation of it GPU's. By contrast, Intel has struggled to land the same sort of dominance it enjoys in the processor market in the GPU market. , ,
2010/12/22 05:43 Richard Donovan GPU performance can it now Conquor the Database? GPU programming gained ubiquity in 2010 with nearly all new super computing complexes introducing full or partial gpu solutions. Now we are seeing the reach of GPU computing extending into other areas including the Database/Data Warehousing and Data Mining. In addition new conference has been launched including the first , ,
