Galaxy sub-brand KFA2 has just announced their new KFA2 GTX460 WHDI nvidia based wireless graphics card. The KFA2 GTX 460 WHDI uses a wireless link (WHDI) to send the display output from your PC to your screen. You just need to attach the bundled receiver to the back of your monitor/screen and you’re done. The card’s name comes from Amimon’s wireless technology – WHDI stands for Wireless Home Digital Interface. WHDI 1.0 provides a high-quality, uncompressed wireless link which supports data rates of up to 3Gbit/s (allowing 1080p) in a 40 MHz channel, and data rates of up to 1.5Gbit/s (allowing 1080i and 720p) in a single 20 MHz channel of the 5 GHz unlicensed band, conforming to FCC regulations and worldwide 5 GHz spectrum regulations. Range is beyond 100…

Nvidia delivers 2 Teraflops in 1U GPU-powered server

nvidia, Supercomputing, Technology
Yep, just leave it to Nvidia to do all the cool stuff.....I wonder how long it will be before a GPU centric OS (Ninux/Nubuntu anyone?) comes out that will squeeze that GPU for all it´s worth. Intel should be worried :-).NVIDIA Corporation and Supermicro today announced the immediate availability of a new class of server that combines massively parallel NVIDIA® Tesla™ GPUs with multi-core CPUs in a single 1U rack-mount server. This unique configuration delivers 12 times the performance of a traditional quad-core CPU-based 1U server.Supermicro is first to market and is demonstrating the NVIDIA Tesla-based SuperServer 6016T-GF-TM2 at Computex 2009 in Taiwan this weekThe new Tesla GPU-based SuperServer, delivers a much higher performance-per-watt and per-rack than any other 1U solution in the market today, 2 Teraflops in 1U to…

ZOTAC IONITX-A-U Atom N330 1.6GHz Dual-Core Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Linux, nvidia, Technology, Windows
I was looking for a fast small (read: mini-ITX) mobo that had enough power to drive 1080P monitor/panel and I came across Zotac IonITX-A-U board. According to manufacturer's website:The mini-ITX form factor ZOTAC® ION combines a high-performance NVIDIA® ION graphics processor with a power-efficient Intel® Atom processor for the ultimate eco-friendly platform that has no troubles handling regular web browsing, e-mail, & productivity and HD video playback tasks.NVIDIA® PureVideo HD technology harnesses the power of the ION's 16 high-speed stream processors for high-definition Blu-ray playback capabilities. PureVideo HD technology decodes HD video formats and enhances standard-definition videos with the ION GPU for flawless HD and superior SD video playback.Sounds and looks very nice and capable. I guess I'd have to pick one up and give it a whirl. Here are…

New NVIDIA Quadro Plex Systems Bring Visual Supercomputing To The Deskside

DCinema, nvidia, Technology
I'm gonna date myself here and ask....Does anyone remember the Agnus Chip? How about the Fatter Agnus or the Alice? For those of you who don't know these were the original and upgraded OCS/ECS chips that did most of the amazing (for the time) graphics for the Amiga computer back in the late-80's/early-90's. Fast forward to today and the announcement of the "Fatter Quadra Plex" at Siggraph 2008. The new desktop graphics monsters come in two flavours. From the announcement:The NVIDIA Quadro Plex 2200 D2 VCS, with two Quadro GPUs, 4 dual-link DVI channels, and 8 GB of frame buffer memory, is designed for advanced visualization of extremely large models and datasets, as well as high-performance computing processes. Its partner, the Quadro Plex 2100 D4 VCS with four GPUs, 8…

Data Analytics and Visualization upgrades for world’s fastest Open Science Supercomputer

nvidia, Supercomputing, Technology
Argonne National Laboratory will soon have the data analytics and visualization capability to complement its distinction as the fastest computer in the world for open science. Argonne awarded GraphStream, Inc. a contract that will help to make data analytics and visualization at this scale possible through the world's largest installation of NVIDIA Quadro® Plex S4 external graphics processing units (GPU). This new supercomputer installation, nicknamed Eureka, will allow researchers to explore and visualize the data they produce with Intrepid. The powerful installation will offer 104 dual quad core servers with 208 Quadro FX5600 GPUs in the S4s.Using the NVIDIA Quadro Plex S4 visual computing system as the base graphics building block, Eureka will deliver a quantum leap in visual compute density, enabling breakthrough levels of productivity and capability in visualization…

16 GPU Monster…..

So how do you emulate the human vision system. Well if you ask either Nicolos Pinto, David Cox or James DiCarlo, they'll probably point at the harmless looking machine sitting in the corner of their lab. The machine in question is "quietly" humming away as it tries to simulate a real-time human level artificial vision system using it's 8 (YES EIGHT) 9800GX2 NVIDIA graphics cards. Have a quick look at this flickr album to get an idea of the size of this beast :-).
