In partnership with Nvidia and Supermicro, the Boston Venom 2305-7T offers a combination of Intel’s 8-core Xeon E5-2600 series processors with a high-performance Nvidia Quadro K5000 GPU and the new Nvidia Tesla K20 companion processor – all within a compact mid-tower Supermicro chassis. By combining the interactive design and visualisation capabilities of the Quadro K5000 GPU and the high-performance computing power of the Tesla K20 GPU, the Venom 2305-7T accelerates workflow and improves simulation turnaround while eliminating productivity bottlenecks. This high-performance workstation is based on the second generation Nvidia Maximus Technology, which in turn is based on the company’s Kepler architecture.
