Sony to Showcase Cell Computing Board Prototype at SIGGRAPH 2007

Sony will be exhibiting its newly developed "Cell Computing Board" prototype at SIGGRAPH 2007 (August 7th to 9th at San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA).

The "Cell Computing Board" incorporates the high-performance Cell Broadband Engine (Cell/B.E.) microprocessor and RSX graphics processor to deliver high computational performance capable of handling large amounts of data at high speed while also achieving reductions in size and energy consumption.

This technology represents a new solution for multimedia computing applications such as computer graphics and scientific computations that require massive data quantities to be processed. Cell Computing Board features:

  • The incorporation of RSX realizes arithmetic operation speeds beyond the 230 GFLOPS of the Cell/B.E. microprocessor alone.
  • "Cell Computing Board" can be embedded in a 1U (unit) sized server and mounted on a 19-inch rack.
  • "Cell Computing Board" delivers high computational performance while reducing power consumption to 400W or less.

At SIGGRAPH 2007, Sony will demonstrate the following sample applications using the "Cell Computing Board":

  • Demonstration of 4K Applications. Real time image processing of 4K (4096x2160) images taking advantage of the performance of "Cell Computing Board".
  • Demonstration of CG Rendering.
  • Demonstration of Physics Simulation. Physics simulation taking advantage of the multi-thread processing ability of "Cell Computing Board".
