NVIDIA and Cray to Deliver Tesla-Enabled Cray CX1 Deskside Supercomputer
Posted by Julie Morgan, Wednesday November 19 2008 @ 01:49PM EST

NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) and Cray (Nasdaq GM: CRAY) today announced the availability of NVIDIA Tesla C1060 GPU Computing processors in the new Cray CX1 line of supercomputers. With "ease-of-everything" features and the ability to fit into a standard office setting, the Cray CX1 product reflects NVIDIA and Cray's goal to drive high productivity computing solutions into a broad array of markets including financial services, oil and gas, life sciences, government and academic.

“NVIDIA GPU computing technology can powerfully accelerate computational capability on important classes of applications. The Cray CX1 system is a flexible platform for individual scientists, workgroups and departments, and coupled with NVIDA’s Tesla computing processors and Quadro GPUs, the Cray CX1 delivers an industry-defining supercomputer”, said Ian Miller, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Cray.

Each Tesla processor has hundreds of processor cores that deliver nearly one teraflop of peak computing performance. The Cray CX1 delivers up to four teraflops of performance, right at the deskside, when configured with four Tesla processors.

“Many organizations today are investigating ways to augment the computational resources of their cluster and increase productivity,” said Andy Keane, general manager of the GPU Computing business at NVIDIA. “The Cray CX1 combined with NVIDIA Tesla GPUs makes massive compute power accessible to scientists and engineers, transforming their workflow and enabling them to get results fast, dramatically increasing the pace of discovery.”

Using GPUs, researchers have reported up to 100x speed-up on applications in fields such as molecular dynamics, quantum chemistry, finite element analysis, particle simulation, and electronic design automation. The highly parallel architecture of the GPU has been made accessible for these industries through the NVIDIA® CUDA™ architecture. With NVIDIA’s award-winning C-compiler and software development kit (SDK) for developing parallel computing applications on GPUs, developers can exploit the GPU’s parallel computing architecture and automatically distribute computing work across tens of thousands of threads and hundreds of processor cores, NVIDIA said.

About Cray Inc.
As a global leader in supercomputing, Cray provides highly advanced supercomputers and world-class services and support to government, industry and academia. Cray technology enables scientists and engineers to achieve remarkable breakthroughs by accelerating performance, improving efficiency and extending the capabilities of their most demanding applications. Cray's Adaptive Supercomputing vision will result in innovative next-generation products that integrate diverse processing technologies into a unified architecture, allowing customers to surpass today’s limitations and meeting the market's continued demand for realized performance.

Cray CX1 Supercomputer
The Cray CX1 product is an affordably-priced, deskside supercomputer. Easy to configure, deploy, administer and use, it is the “right size” in performance, functionality and cost for a wide range of users, from the single user who wants a personal supercomputer to a department of users as a shared clustered resource. Equipped with powerful Intel Xeon® processors and Windows® HPC Server 2008 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux with Clustercorp Rocks+, the Cray CX1 product offers performance leadership across a broad range of applications and standard benchmarks. For organizations wanting to harness HPC without the complexity of traditional clusters, the Cray CX1 supercomputer delivers the power of a high performance cluster with the ease-of-use and seamless integration of a workstation.
