A New Engine for Financial Analysis

In HPC Wire, Altera Corporation’s Bryce Mackin makes the case that FPGAs are well suited for financial analytics applications and offer a viable energy-efficient solution:
“Requirements for financial analytics are notably stringent: high-precision, intense math computation with millions of iterations, programmed in a high-level language that should not be re-factored or altered. Can FPGA coprocessors meet these challenges? Absolutely, but only if a complete solution is provided! An FPGA hardware platform, a high-level programming environment, and a library of key FPGA functions are the keys. These are now available as a new tool for accelerating and improving financial analysis.” Full Story
