Nvidia Corp. on Tuesday introduced its new high-end compute card designed for high-performance scientific computing. The novelty utilizes the company's latest code-named GF110 graphics processing unit, has 512 stream processors and delivers the industry's highest compute performance among specially designed accelerators.

Nvidia Tesla M2090 compute card is based on the code-named GF110 graphics processor clocked at 650/1300MHz that has all the 512 stream processors enabled. The board also has 6GB of GDDR5 memory with ECC clocked at 3.70GHz. Thanks to usage of the more advanced graphics processor for computing, the novelty delivers roughly 665GFLOPS of double precision performance, which is about 30% more horsepower than the predecessor M2070.

In the latest version of Amber 11, one of the most widely used applications for simulating behaviors of biomolecules, four Tesla M2090 GPUs coupled with four CPUs delivered record performance of 69 nanoseconds of simulation per day. The fastest AMBER performance recorded on a CPU-only supercomputer is 46 ns/day, according to Nvidia. In addition to AMBER, the Tesla M2090 GPU is well suited to a wide range of GPU-accelerated HPC applications.

"This is the fastest result ever reported. With Tesla M2090 GPUs, Amber users in university departments can obtain application performance that outstrips what is possible even with extensive supercomputer access," said Ross Walker, assistant research professor at the San Diego Computer Center, and principle contributor to the Amber code.

The Tesla M2090 GPU will be available in servers such as the new HP ProLiant SL390 G7 4U server. As part of the SL6500 Scalable System of HP server solutions, optimized for scale-out and HPC market segments, the SL390 family was purpose built for hybrid computing environments that combine GPUs and CPUs.

The SL390 G7 4U server incorporates up to eight Tesla M2090 GPUs in a half-width 4U chassis and, with a configuration of eight GPUs to two CPUs, offers the highest GPU-to-CPU density on the market. The system is ideally suited for applications ranging from quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics to seismic processing and data analytics.
