Supercomputing: Microway and DRC Computer Corporation today join forces to deliver superior processing power to High Performance Computing (HPC) users. Microway’s Linux-based NumberSmasher-RPU systems will now use both dual-core AMD Opteron processors and DRC’s RPUs (Reconfigurable Processor Units). These new systems provide high value through a savings on space, heat generation and power consumption and deliver a competitively priced, scalable, high-performance platform for scientific applications.
“We are delighted to be working closely with Microway to provide the industry’s largest and most powerful RPU in the company’s scalable, high performance platforms,” said Larry Laurich, CEO at DRC. “We are excited to be able to show the quantifiable advantages of this solution at this year’s Supercomputing trade show taking place in Tampa Florida.”
