Supermicro launches four teraflop GPU-based computing system

Supports four Nvidia Telsa C1060 GPUs and three PCI-e add-on cards

By CBR Staff Writer

Super Micro Computer (Supermicro) has launched the dual Intel Xeon 5500 series processor-based 7046GT-TRF SuperWorkstation that supports four Nvidia Tesla C1060 GPUs as well as three additional PCI-e add-on cards for high-bandwidth I/O.

The company claims that the new system also features Gold Level (93%+ efficiency) 1400-watt power supplies and quiet operation for making them suitable for both enterprise and office supercomputing applications.

According to Supermicro, the 7046GT-TRF is housed in its new 4U rackmount convertible tower chassis, the SC747TQ-R1400. This chassis supports up to 11 full-height, full-length expansion cards, eight hot-swap 3.5-inch SAS/SATA drives, and special design features that are intended for graphics and computationally intensive applications.

Supermicro said that the 4U SuperServer 7046GT-TRF, a new addition to its family of GPU-based systems, is suitable not only for cluster configurations like the 1U systems, but also for personal supercomputing.

Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro, said: Extending our leadership in GPU computing system architectures, the new 7046GT-TRF features multiple x16 non-blocking native Gen2 PCI-Express connectivity, Supermicro’s first system to support four double-width GPUs.

“Equipped with Supermicro’s patented thermal design, and industry-leading power efficiency, these highly parallel, multi-GPU systems are optimised for a wide range of graphics and computationally intensive applications in fields like medical imaging, oil and gas exploration, quantum chemistry, financial simulation, genomics and astrophysics.
