FREMONT, Calif. & SALT LAKE CITY -- November 12, 2012
Penguin Computing, experts in high performance computing (HPC) solutions and
an NVidia OEM partner, today announced the availability of NVidia’s Tesla K20
accelerator on Penguin’s line of GPU servers.
The next-generation NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPU Accelerator has been designed for
throughput and performance per watt. It features two ultra-efficient GK110
GPUs that provide up to 3X performance per watt for single precision
applications than its predecessor, the M2090. The NVIDIA Tesla K20 features
two GK110 GPUs with 2,880 CUDA cores each and 5GB of memory operating at 208
GB/second per GPU. These GPUs are well suited for single as well as double
precision workloads, including seismic processing, signal, image and video
analysis, molecular dynamics, engineering and mathematical applications.
“Penguin offers a large portfolio of GPU platforms reaching from GPU enabled
workstations and double GPU hybrid servers to high density solutions that
accommodate up to 16 GPUs in a 4U form factor,” said Jussi Kukonen, Director
of Product Management at Penguin Computing. “Due to this broad product
portfolio, a growing number of applications that feature GPU support and the
compelling performance benefits we have been seeing a tremendous growth in
demand for hybrid solutions. With the record breaking performance the Tesla
K20 has to offer we foresee that this trend will gain even more momentum.”
“Delivering a peak performance of over 3.5TFLOPs for single precision and over
1TFLOPs for double precision numbers the NVidia K20 is the world’s fastest,
most energy efficient accelerator,” said Sumit Gupta, senior director of the
Tesla business at NVIDIA. “As an expert in all things HPC and as an NVidia OEM
partner Penguin Computing offers a large selection of platforms and
understands how to make our leading edge GPU technology work for our joint
The NVidia Tesla K20 is available immediately through Penguin Computing and
will be on display at SC’12 in Penguin Computing’s booth 1217.
