PRESS RELEASE

Tesla 20 series

Nvidia has unveiled its Tesla 20-series of parallel processors for the HPC market, based on its new generation Cuda processor architecture, codenamed Fermi.

Designed from the ground-up for parallel computing, the Nvidia Tesla 20-series GPUs slash the cost of computing by delivering the same performance of a traditional CPU-based cluster at one-tenth the cost and one-twentieth the power.

The Tesla 20-series introduces features that enable many new applications to perform dramatically faster using GPU computing. These include ray tracing, 3D cloud computing, video encoding, database search, data analytics, computer-aided engineering and virus scanning.

At their core, Tesla GPUs are based on the massively parallel Cuda computing architecture that offers developers a parallel computing model that is easier to understand and program.
