NVIDIA has been the market leader when it comes to the super performing giant computers and workstations and in this department its sole ruler is the Tesla K20X which is one of the best in its category and has been featured in the world’s fastest Titan supercomputer. It is time to move a step forward and NVDIA has never been the one to stay behind. This time we are expecting a new release for this market of super computers and we will soon be viewing the NVIDIA Tesla K40 which has been codenamed as the ATLAS.
During this last week, I recently was lucky enough to attend a Nvidia’s GPU Technology Conference, which I’ll hereafter refer to as GTC. GTC was focused primarily on Programming Nvidia’s GPU processors that are installed in several lines of their video cards. The most common & recognized by many is the GeForce line of graphic cards, made more for the average consumers & game enthusiasts. The next line of cards discussed at GTC was the Quadro cards, with more of a tool for visualization industry, including design and animation. The final card discussed at their show was the Tesla cards, made specifically for parallel computing and to take advantage of the many cores prevalent in the GPU processor architecture.
