Colfax International Unveils World's First 8 NVIDIA Tesla GPU Server

Colfax CXT8000 offers nearly 8 Teraflops in a single 4U server
Oct. 13, 2009 - PRLog -- Colfax International, a leading provider of fully-customizable, high-performance computing solutions, today introduced the world’s first server featuring up to 8 NVIDIA® Tesla™ C1060 GPUs. The Colfax CXT8000 supports up to 8 CPU cores and 1920 GPU cores with nearly 8 Teraflops of peak single precision GPU performance in a single 4U system.

Traditionally, scientists, engineers, and other technical professionals have had to rely on large CPU-based clusters to crunch complex datasets. Introduction of Colfax CXT8000 democratizes HPC by providing these professionals with an affordable supercomputing resource that comes in a small footprint, is much faster, and more energy-efficient than a CPU-only driven cluster.

The Colfax CXT8000 together with NVIDIA's CUDA C toolkit for leveraging the massively parallel architecture of the GPU will provide a quantum leap in performance and continue to accelerate the pace of engineering and scientific work to solve the most computationally-intensive challenges including protein docking, molecular dynamics, financial analysis, structural analysis, and many others.

"Colfax has consistently been first to market with solutions that solve our customers’ pain points for better outcomes," said Gautam Shah, CEO, Colfax International. "CXT8000 will deliver a compelling solution providing customers access to supercomputing power to handle larger and more complex compute-intensive workloads outside of the data center, reduce design and development cycles, and drive new levels of innovation and productivity."

“Colfax continues to provide innovative solutions for today's most demanding HPC users with their latest CXT8000 product featuring eight Tesla C1060 GPU Computing Processors," said Andy Keane, general manager, Tesla business at NVIDIA. "With nearly eight Teraflops of peak performance in an enterprise-class, energy-efficient 4U server, the Colfax CXT8000 is an ideal solution for HPC customers seeking to maximize application performance and time-to-results.”
