AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 18 -- BOXX Technologies is leveraging its extensive experience in multi-GPU high-performance computing systems designed for cutting edge media creation to provide scientists, engineers and researchers with a GPU-based personal supercomputing capability. The BOXX Personal Supercomputer (PSC), which will be shown at the NVIDIA booth (#833) during this week's SC08 Conference, the top international conference for high performance computing (HPC), enables scientists and engineers to analyze immense datasets, apply complex algorithms and test alternative theories -- all on their desktop.
A product of BOXX's Innovative Integration process, the new BOXX Personal Supercomputer (PSC) is designed to accelerate the execution of highly parallelized computing tasks in biomedical research, oil & gas exploration, financial derivatives analysis and complex engineering. Researchers interested in accelerating time-to-discovery will find that the BOXX PSC delivers compact and quiet deskside GPU-based computing power.
"Boxx has built a personal supercomputer that delivers cluster class performance in a sleek chassis, making it a powerful and flexible solution for researchers wanting to unchain themselves from the datacenter," said Andrew Walsh, general manager of personal supercomputing at NVIDIA. "We are delighted to have them as provider of Tesla Personal Supercomputers."
Through the revolutionary NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing architecture powered by up to 960 processing cores, the BOXX PSC delivers nearly four TFLOPS of GPU computing power, offering computing performance 250 times faster than a standard PC. The BOXX PSC offers a space-saving desktop solution alternative to large clusters to meet the demands of the compute-intensive work these scientists require.
"Boxx has designed a workstation that is quiet and has an extremely reliable cooling system, which is essential for continuous computing. Our Personal Supercomputer comes with either Microsoft Windows or Linux operating systems pre-installed, required by a broader spectrum of scientific, medical, and engineering professionals," said Shoaib Mohammad, director of business development and international sales for BOXX Technologies.
