Single system with 4 GPUs and 6GB of on-board memory empowers 35X speed-up for simulation sizes up to 200 Million cells, delivering high-performance technical computing competitive with traditional clusters
Honolulu, HI, June 5, 2007 (MTT-S IMS 2007) - Acceleware Corp. (the "Corporation" or "Acceleware") (trading symbol "AXE" TSXV) today announced its next generation ClusterInABox Quad, the latest addition to Acceleware's line of "Supercomputing for the Desktop" products. This new solution from Acceleware has four NVIDIA GPUs with 6 GB of on-board memory, in a single system, and supports simulations for finely meshed models of up to 200 Million cells including boundaries (Soft Memory Limit is engaged for larger simulations) with computations performed at speeds up to 1.7 GCells/s (1700 MCells/s).
"The capacity of ClusterInABox Quad opens up new market segments for hardware acceleration," says Dr. Ray Luebbers President & CEO, Remcom Inc. "In a small fraction of the time required by a PC, Remcom's XFdtd® coupled with ClusterInABox Quad allows design engineers to generate results for much larger and more complicated geometries."
ClusterInABox Quad delivers computing power equal to clusters of servers, giving engineers, geophysicists and research users the competitive advantage of having phenomenal computing power available to them beside their desk, on demand. Simulation results using existing software tools can be obtained in fraction of the time compared to a high-end workstation. This now provides customers with the flexibility to run multiple simulations per day instead of being limited to a single, overnight process. Acceleware customers have redesigned their workflows to utilize sophisticated computer-aided optimization techniques while still delivering timely results.
"This capability addresses a real need expressed by our customers," said Sean Krakiwsky, CEO for Acceleware. "We are really excited to enable Remcom in delivering this competitive advantage to its end users."
The ClusterInABox Quad is now available to purchase through the Acceleware partner network.
