GPUs (Graphics Processing Units, sprich Graphikkarten) sind im Kommen. 

Nimbix, a leading HPC cloud platform provider, today announced plans to expand its performance leadership in cloud supercomputing with the addition of IBM’s recently launched Power Systems S822LC for High Performance Computing (HPC) platform featuring NVIDIA Pascal GPUs.  Nimbix will now put the capabilities of IBM Power Systems for HPC, based on the POWER8 with NVIDIA NVLink interconnect technology processor, and Nimbix’s JARVICE platform in the hands of developers and data scientists to achieve unprecedented performance.


GPUs Seen Lifting SQL Analytic Constraints

Nvidia used its booth in the Strata + Hadoop World Expo last week to showcase the new DGX-1, a new deep-learning supercomputer that it says is 250 times more powerful than a typical X86-based server. The company continually ran a live computer vision demo involving a GPU-based neural network that attempted to identify random objects, such as a car or an orange, placed before the camera. Attendees got a kick out of pointing the camera at other objects, such as Nvidia representatives or the ceiling, and seeing what the GPU would come up with.
