Eurotech Teams With AppliedMicro and NVIDIA to Develop New HPC System Architecture

25/06/2014 by


Eurotech, a leading provider of embedded and supercomputing technologies, has teamed up with Applied Micro Circuits Corporation and NVIDIA to develop a new, original high performance computing (HPC) system architecture that combines extreme density and best-in-class energy efficiency. The new architecture is based on an innovative highly modular and scalable packaging concept.

Eurotech, which has years of significant experience in designing and manufacturing original HPC systems, has successfully developed an HPC systems architecture that optimizes the benefits of greater density, as well as the energy efficiency of ARM processors and high-performance GPU accelerators.

For this development, Eurotech partnered with AppliedMicro, a California-based data center semiconductor company, utilizing X-GeneTM, the world’s first ARMv8 64-bit-based Server on a Chip Solution. Eurotech has paired X-Gene with NVIDIA Tesla GPU accelerators to efficiently deliver high performance for demanding HPC workloads.

“We are excited and proud of this new development we have undertaken with AppliedMicro and NVIDIA,” said Giampietro Tecchiolli, Eurotech CTO. “The new architecture we have developed is highly optimized for High Performance Computing applications and delivers amazing density and energy efficiency. We expect to introduce products based on this revolutionary architecture in the very near future.”

“Today’s announcement validates the performance of X-Gene’s robust, 64-bit sever-class processor cores and highlights the power efficiency and density enabled by X-Gene’s wide memory bandwidth and high speed I/O integrated onto a single piece of silicon,” said Gaurav Singh, Vice President of Technology Strategy at AppliedMicro. “We are excited to collaborate with Eurotech and NVIDIA to commercialize this innovative, high performance platform.”
