AMD Introduces Dedicated Enterprise Stream Processor
At the Supercomputing 2006 show today, AMD introduced its first dedicated stream processor designed to meet the specific hardware demands of high-performance computing (HPC) applications. Engineered specifically for compute-only systems such as workstations and servers, the AMD Stream Processor makes use of company's new thin hardware interface called CTM.
Using professional-grade technology derived from AMD’s Graphics Product Group, the AMD Stream Processor is a PCI Express-based add-in board with 1GB of GDDR3 HPC-optimized memory. The AMD Stream Processor also includes broad operating system support for server implementations; full-service, enterprise-class technical support; and a limited three-year warranty. The AMD Stream Processor is available now from distributors.
Hardware platform providers, including GraphStream Inc., PANTA Systems, and Rackable Systems, also introduced new stream servers to the market today. Stream servers make use of the new AMD Stream Processor to deliver enterprise-class performance for the HPC and enterprise markets in industry standard form factors.
