Matrox Supersight e2 high-performance computing (HPC) platform is now equipped with ATI FirePro professional graphics from AMD. Matrox Supersight e2, with its high-bandwidth PCIe 2.0 switched fabric backplane, provides substantial data throughput and expansion capability for supporting up to six double-wide or up to nine single-wide GPUs in a 4U platform. In turn, each ATI FirePro professional graphics card provides up to 1,600 stream processors and 147.2 GB/s of memory bandwidth.
‘The Matrox Supersight e2 with ATI FirePro V7800 or ATI FirePro V8800 graphics cards provides the architecture and computational power needed to greatly accelerate the data-parallel operations commonly employed in high-throughput machine vision and medical imaging applications. In addition, many of these GPU-optimised operations are already available through our Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) software development kit,’ explained Michael Chee, product manager at Matrox Imaging.
