Free test drive from Silicon Mechanics

Silicon Mechanics, a manufacturer of rackmount servers, storage, and computing hardware, now offers a remote test drive of Nvidia Tesla K20 GPU accelerators.

The company says that customers who sign up for the free test can see how they can use parallel processing to accelerate applications by up to 10 times compared to multi-core x86 CPU sockets.

Silicon Mechanics says Nvidia Tesla K20 GPU accelerators, based on the Nvidia Kepler GPU architecture, are ideal for applications across multiple domains including seismic processing, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), financial computing, computational chemistry and physics, data analytics, satellite imaging, and weather modelling.

'Silicon Mechanics is extremely excited to be part of Nvidia's test drive programme, which provides customers a no-obligation way to find out if the power of parallel processing can significantly improve their computing performance,' said Art Mann, education/research/government vertical group manager.

'We have been providing servers with GPU capabilities for years and look forward to helping researchers and other customers learn whether their particular application could benefit from implementing GPUs.'
