AMAX Showcases Next-Generation Parallel Computing Solutions at GTC 2010

Accelerated GPU-Based HPC Cluster and Workstation Platforms Dramatically Increase the Speed of Supercomputing

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  AMAX, a leader in HPC solutions, will be demonstrating its GPGPU-based supercomputing cluster and personal supercomputer platforms at GPU Technology Conference, Table #89/91. The event will take place on September 20-23 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California.

Scientists and engineers are looking for innovative ways to accelerate applications and shorten computational cycles. Based on AMAX's 31 years of design expertise, AMAX's next-generation GPU solutions are developed around NVIDIA's CUDA programming language and Tesla GPU technology to fully maximize performance and efficiency. When properly optimized using best-of-breed components within validated supercomputing configurations, AMAX's GPU platforms take full advantage of Tesla GPUs combined with Intel Xeon-based servers to deliver eight times the performance of CPU-only solutions for a wide range of graphics and compute intensive applications, including cloud computing, oil and gas exploration, financial modeling, seismic exploration, visualization, and life sciences.

"AMAX has been one of NVIDIA's original hardware partners optimizing GPU-computing since this technology's nascence," said Jean Shih, President, AMAX. "Our experience with the development and optimization of this technology gives us a driving engineering advantage in configuring systems that maximize performance powerfully yet efficiently. AMAX's solutions set the standard in GPU computing by not just providing workable solutions, but solutions designed to maximize performance and productivity."

AMAX products featured at the show include:

  • ClusterMax SuperG GPGPU HPC Solution featuring a 42U Infiniband GPGPU cluster and GPGPU SSD storage node to maximize performance. It includes support for NVIDIA® Tesla™ 20-series GPUs and up to 86.52 Teraflops of computing horsepower. The SuperG was designed to meet critical requirements for datacenters and supercomputing centers deploying Tesla GPUs with uncompromised computing accuracy and reliability.

  • ServMax GPGPU Personal Supercomputer is powered by the massively parallel CUDA architecture and supports four NVIDIA® Tesla™ 20-series GPU cards working in sync, transforming a workstation into the equivalent of a small cluster at 5% the power consumption and 10% the cost. It delivers an astounding 4.12 Teraflops of performance in a single chassis that bolster graphics and computationally intensive applications.

Every AMAX cluster is customizable and designed to suit your exact project requirements, from performance and budget, to delivering maximum ROI and minimum TCO. For more information on AMAX products, visit: http://www.amax.com.
