Video: Why is Everyone Talking About GPUs for HPC?

I think that NVIDIA was a big winner this year at ISC, and it wasn’t just because China’s new Tesla-powered Nebulae Supercomputer came in at number 2 on the TOP500. The reason for me was rapid adoption; I visited at least half a dozen booths that featured the latest NVIDIA GPUs in a variety of configurations. Clearly, the company is getting traction in the market.

In this video, I interview Andy Keane, NVIDIA General Manager of the Tesla Business Unit and discuss the advantages of GPUs for HPC. He also gives us his views on power efficiency and Exascale computing.


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
