The Nvidia Tesla K10 features two GK104 GPUs with 1536 CUDA cores each and 4GB of memory operating at 160 GB/second per GPU
FREMONT, USA: SGI announced the availability of a managed GPU solution of its SGI rackable servers with the new Nvidia Tesla K10 GPU Computing Accelerator.
Coupled with SGI Management and Performance Suite software, the solution is built, completely integrated, and tested in SGI’s manufacturing facility so that it can be installed at the customer site and begin running application codes in less than a day, claims the company in a release.
Bill Mannel, vice president, product marketing, SGI. “Our GPU clusters are all you need for a powerful deployment. We’re also announcing the SGI GPU Starter Kit, a 10-server cluster with 20 Nvidia Tesla K10 GPUs for those who want to start enjoying the benefits of CUDA programming today in a cost-effective solution.”
The new Nvidia Tesla K10 GPU Accelerator features two GK104 GPUs that provide up to 2X performance per watt for single precision applications than its predecessor, the M2090, adds the company in the release.
The Nvidia Tesla K10 features two GK104 GPUs with 1536 CUDA cores each and 4GB of memory operating at 160 GB/second per GPU.
The baseline server for the solution is the SGI Rackable C1104G-RP5, a 1U standard depth chassis, and the SGI 2110-RP5, a 2U standard depth chassis.
Each server features one dual-socket server powered by two Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 series, and 8 DIMM slots.
The C1104 can accommodate up to four 2.5 inch hard disk drives, three PCI-E 3.0 x 16 double-width expansion slots and dual-port GigE networking controllers, while the C2110 can accommodate up to ten 2.5 inch hard drives, four internal PCI-E 3.0 x 16 double-width expansion slots and dual-port GigE controllers.
SGI is also announcing the availability of SGI GPU Starter Kit with Nvidia Tesla K10 GPU Accelerator offering a pre-configured bundle of 10 nodes.
“Adding GPUs to a server delivers significant application acceleration, and this is having a profound effect on many important industry segments,” said Sumit Gupta, senior director of the Tesla business at Nvidia. “SGI's new K10-enabled SGI Rackable servers provide researchers with a powerful and flexible platform upon which to innovate.”
The Nvidia Tesla K10 GPU is available in the SGI Rackable C1104G and C2110G server product lines.
The SGI GPU Starter Kit with Nvidia Tesla K10 GPU Accelerator is also available in the SGI Rackable C1104G server product line from now on.
