HAMBURG, Germany, June 23 -- Boston Limited have launched and showcased their highly optimised CPU & GPU compute solution based around AMD's next generation FireStream GPU technologies in conjunction with one of the SS6016XT series servers from Super Micro Computer, Inc.
Unveiled at ISC'09 (International Supercomputing Conference), Boston's Venom F1000-4 system features four AMD FireStream 9250 compute accelerators offering up to 4 TERAFLOPs of computational power. With each card operating at less than 120W and all fitted in a 1U form factor, the Boston Venom F1000-4 displays incredible performance per watt in a remarkable density.
In addition to four AMD FireStream 9250 cards, the 1U Venom still has one card slot free allowing professional users to add a high performance network card such as an InfiniBand controller or 10Gb Ethernet card. The solution already hosts system management as standard via on-board IPMI 2.0 with additional KVM Over LAN. Further expansion options are provided via three hot-swap hard drive bays, Dual GbE controllers and a slim DVD. The whole system is driven by a 93 percent efficient 1400W power supply, which has attained the highly coveted Gold Level rating.
"Our 6016XT SuperServers feature four full-height, full-length PCI-Express x16 slots and one low-profile slot to support up to five PCI-Express 2.0 add-on cards," said Dev Tyagi, General Manager of Supermicro UK. "With highly reliable thermal optimization monitoring and control, and industry-leading power efficiency, Supermicro has developed the world's most optimized GPU-based server platforms for the HPC community."
Boston's implementation features 4 AMD FireStream 9250 GPUs with each GPU capable of providing up to a staggering 1 TeraFLOP of performance and more than 200 gigaflops raw double precision performance. "It is ideal for the most demanding compute-intensive and data-parallel tasks," said Manoj Nayee, Managing Director of Boston Limited. "The F1000 is an ideal and highly power efficient solution suitable for various industry segments including financial analytics, seismic analysis, life sciences and computer aided engineering".
"By taking advantage of AMD's leadership in performance per watt Stream computing, and the phenomenal compute power of 800 Stream Processors per AMD FireStream 9250 card, Boston have engineered an excellent 1U solution with 4-Teraflop performance" said Robert Jamieson, EMEA Marketing Manager Workstation Graphics.
Boston's CPU / GPU offerings span a range of 1U, 2U, and 4U configurations providing customers with a range of optimized and affordable choices.
