Eurotech and Intel double up for HPC
14 May 2008Tweet
Gruppo Eurotech and Intel have signed a memorandum of understanding over several years of technological collaboration.
Under the terms of the agreement – signed during a visit by Pat Gelsinger, vice president and general manager on Intel's Digital Enterprise Group – the two companies will work together on the development of HPC (high performance computing) systems based on Intel processors. These systems will address the computing needs of fluid dynamics and aerodynamic analysis, as well as scientific computing.
The goal of the MoU is to help address the main scientific issues connected to Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics (LQCD), a discipline that studies the elementary forces of nature and in particular Strong Interaction Force, which justifies the cohesion of nucleons (protons and neutrons) within an atomic nucleus.
Eurotech will use Intel's processors for its systems, offering a standards-based architecture, which does not require the re-writing of specific software programs. Intel's processors also offer high performance with low power consumption, also making them ideal for extreme use systems.
Eurotech, is an Italian company active in the research, development, production and marketing of miniaturised computers (NanoPCs) and of computers featuring high-performance computing capability (HPCs).
