NVIDIA and NEC Collaborate to Deliver GPU Computing Solutions to HPC Market
Posted by Julie Morgan, Wednesday November 19 2008 @ 01:52PM EST

NVIDIA has announced today that it has begun a close collaboration with NEC to integrate NVIDIA® Tesla™ GPUs into its systems for the high performance computing (HPC) industry. NEC brings extensive experience as a major solution provider in the HPC market to the partnership which will see powerful, parallel GPU Computing solutions deployed into a range of industries.

“This partnership is an important step for NEC to promote a total solution business including heterogeneous or hybrid computing technologies,” said Mr. Fumihiko Hisamitsu, general manager of NEC’s High performance computing marketing promotion division. “NEC will offer unique HPC solutions to our joint customers and will work with NVIDIA globally to specify Tesla solutions for customers designing high performance computing clusters.”

“We are delighted to have an organization of NEC’s caliber supporting the Tesla business,” said Andy Keane, general manager of the GPU Computing business at NVIDIA. “Their industry and segment experience will deliver enormous value to our joint customers and will help to deliver truly transformative results to the work they are doing.”

The first customer to leverage this collaboration is the Global Scientific Information and Computing Center (GSIC) at Tokyo Institute of Technology, whose TSUBAME supercomputer has lead the supercomputing scene both in Japan and globally for the past 2.5 years. TSUBAME was upgraded in Oct 2008 with 680 NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, unprecedentedly while the system remained in operation. The newly upgraded system recorded 77.48 Teraflops in Linpack, ranking it high in the global Top 500 supercomputer listing.

NVIDIA Tesla GPU Computing processors are revolutionizing industries such as oil and gas, finance, medical and life science. In many cases, processing tasks that are simply not possible on CPU-based clusters and workstations are being enabled by the Tesla 10-series products. Each Tesla processor has 240 cores, providing 1 Teraflop of processing power, along with 4GB of onboard memory. The new NVIDIA Tesla S1070 1U system features four Tesla 10-series processors -- for a total of 960 cores and 4 Teraflops of processing power.
