The new research and development lab is built around 10 HP Proliant SL250s, SL270s and ML350P Generation 8 servers, all which feature integrated NVIDIA Tesla GPUs. NVIDIA is calling this server CPU and GPU mashup "GPU Computing" and says that it improves performance by handing off compute-intensive task to the GPU while the rest of the code is passed through the CPU.

 

"The goal of the collaborative centre was to enable solution improvements and spur the adoption of HP systems based on NVIDIA Tesla GPUs for HPC," Philippe Trautmann, EMEA sales director HPC for HP. "HPC systems require huge amounts of compute resources to achieve their expected performance, as well as the expertise to integrate them."
