Texas Instruments and Nimbix, a leader in heterogeneous high-performance computing cloud processing, have announced their collaboration on Nimbix’s Accelerated Compute Cloud (NACC). The collaboration demonstrates the power of combining low-power acceleration technology with an easy-to-use high-performance cloud service. Nimbix utilised the fixed- and floating-point capabilities of TI’s KeyStone-based TMS320C66x DSPs to provide real-time high-definition video processing in a cloud compute environment. The use of multicore DSPs over other processors lends itself to be better in performance per watt, resulting in lower total cost of ownership for a variety of cloud-based workloads, including video, imaging and multimedia.
