PRESS RELEASE

Supersight e2 with Xeon 5600 support

Matrox Imaging has announced compatibility with the latest Intel Xeon processor - the 5600 series. System host boards (SHBs) based on the processors are now available for the company's Supersight e2 HPC imaging platform. The 32nm-architecture Intel Xeon processor 5600 series includes a 12MB shared L3 cache and connects to DDR3L-SDRAM running at up to 1333 MHz. This provides higher bandwidth and better memory performance for I/O-bound operations - a significant benefit for imaging applications.

Matrox Supersight e2 is a high-performance computing platform designed for imaging applications with an extremely high throughput. Leveraging multiple clusters of CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs, the system provides an environment for considerable data and task-level parallel processing through a PCI Express x16 2.0 (Gen2) switch fabric.
