Researchers from the University of Warwick’s Performance Computing and Visualization Department and Oxford University’s eResearch Centre have put together a study: should we install a GPGPU-based system or a more traditional IMB Blue Gene-like supercomputer? The team’s research will present their work at the 1st International Workshop on Performance Modeling, Benchmarking and Simulation of High Performance Computing Systems at the SC10 conference in New Orleans. The Khronos Group will be at Booth # 1132 at SC10.
What would you have if you put over 7000 NVIDIA Tesla GPUs together? Chances are you would have the worlds fastest computer. Chinas National University of Defense Technology has put together 7,168 NVIDIA Tesla M2050 (Fermi) GPUs, 14,336 CPUs, 262TB of memory and 2PB of storage, giving them the worlds fastest super computer with a Linpack performance of 2.5 petaflops. Peak performance of the new Tianhe-1A super computer is 4.7 petaflops. Oh, did I mention it draws 4 Megawatts of power! The Tianhe-1A super computer means the Us has lost its top spot in the TOP500.
ZDNet sat down with Huang at the recent GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California to discuss CUDA, OpenCL and all things parallel computing.
HUONE, Imagination Technologies and Rightware will be demonstrating in the "Khronos Pavilion" at SIGGRAPH ASIA. We are dramatically increasing our participation at SIGGRAPH Asia 2010 in Seoul over last year. We're hosting another Khronos Developer University co-located with SIGGRAPH Asia. We are looking forward to seeing all the familiar faces as well as lots of new ones.
Vincent Hindriksen, owner of StreamComputing will be speaking at the Thalesian seminar on the Usability of OpenCL for Financial Computations. The meetup will be held in Canary Wharf, London, at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, 27th October, 2010. Founded in 2008. the Thalesians are a think tank of dedicated professionals with an interest in quantitative finance, economics, mathematics, physics, computer science, and synergetics.
Tony Parisi is co-organizing a San Francisco Bay Area WebGL meetup. Details and upcoming schedules can be found on the meetup page.
DMP has announced a new two day getting start GLSL Programming training course on December 9th and 10th 2010. This course introduces the world of programmable pipeline by explaining basic topics of the GLSL(OpenGL Shading Language) which is a core feature of OpenGL ES 2.x and OpenGL 2.x. The course is offered in Japan in Japanese.
This is a complete tutorial for loading static, skinned and morphing meshes from COLLADA and rendering them correctly in DirectX. Full source code with example .dae files and documentation.
See numerous Khronos members demonstrate on the “Khronos Pavilion” and teach about Khronos APIs at “Developer University.” Following our successful participation in SIGGRAPH Asia 2009, the Khronos Group is dramatically increasing our participation at SIGGRAPH Asia 2010 in Seoul. We are hosting Khronos Developer University co-located with SIGGRAPH Asia, and numerous Khronos members have joined together and each is taking a demonstration suite to create a large number of exciting demos in the Khronos Pavilion on the SIGGRAPH trade show floor. We are looking forward to seeing you all there.
DMP is proud to announce two all new OpenGL ES programming training courses. OpenGL ES programming training I and II will run November 11-12 and November 18-19 2010. Complete details are available online for the Training I and Training II courses in english, and in Japanese.
