Appro to demonstrate its supercomputer at the SC08 in Austin, Texas
MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 17 -- Appro, a leading provider of supercomputing solutions, completes the final deployment of 38 TFLOP/s, Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer for the new ING Renault F1 Team Computational Aerodynamics Research Centre. The supercomputer gives the Research Centre more computing power to run full-car aerodynamic simulations using CFD applications required for improving the ING Renault F1 Team's cars. A member from the team's IT department will present best practices on building a CFD supercomputer at the SC08 show, Appro booth number 1633. In addition, Appro product tours and supercomputing demonstrations will also be available.
"Appro is proud to continue working with the ING Renault F1 Team in this performance driven space to achieve the competitive edge in Formula 1 in 2009 and beyond," said Daniel Kim, CEO of Appro. "Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer fulfills the demanding mix of the ING Renault F1 Team's requirements, in this case for capacity and capability computing and heterogeneous processing that combines x86, 64-bit multi-core AMD Opteron processors and streaming GPU modes."
"The intense computational demands of the ING Renault F1 Team are best addressed by innovative HPC solutions that can deliver enhanced performance while keeping power costs low," said Patrick Patla, vice president and general manager of the Server and Workstation Division at AMD (NYSE: AMD). "AMD's Direct Connect Architecture makes native Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors an ideal computing solution for Renault's compute-intensive CFD Centre."
