Nor-Tech recently announced low-cost, GPU-powered supercomputer configuration that reduces the HPC purchase cost by 2/3 to 3/4 (about $20,000 less for an 8 GPU server). According to Nor-Tech, the solution is a good fit for nearly all, but not all organizations.
"We figured out a way to get consumer-grade cards into a 4U chassis,” said Nor-Tech’s Vice President of Engineering, Dom Daninger and his team tested and retested the prototype until they were satisfied that their solution would be successful for most applications. “The result is a niche product that allows nearly all organizations to take advantage of GPU supercomputing capabilities—in essence supercomputing capabilities at an unheard of price point.”
