NVIDIA SC14 Highlights

No doubt an incomplete list, I will update throughout the week, but some of my favorite highlights so far:

  • NVIDIA SC14 landing page
  • NVIDIA announces K80, the world’s fastest accelerator for data analytics and scientific computing, K80 Specs
  • In-situ visualization is one of the hottest new trends that users are demanding, NVIDIA partner Kitware Works with NVIDIA to Drive Massive Acceleration in HPC Visualization, Kitware announcement
  • Only 1 new system makes it into Top 10 of the Top500 list, an NVIDIA-powered Cray CS-Storm system, Top500 List. Of all the recently announced GPU-enabled servers, the Cray CS-Storm supporting up to eight NVIDIA GPU cards is one of my favorites.
  • San Diego Supercomputer Center’s new Comet supercomputer to feature NVIDIA K80 powered GPU nodes. Given the chilly weather this week in New Orleans, I’m looking forward to visiting Comet in San Diego.
  • K80 specs look great, but real world application performance from customers is the ultimate test, Amber Molecular Dynamics benchmarks on K80.
