Xeon Phi: Revolutionary Offer from Intel Developers

Intel Corporation has made a resolute step towards the improvement of performance demonstrated by ‘supercomputers’. Its new Intel Xeon Phi is called to create a real revolution in the IT world, offering unmatched performance showings on activities with the high parallelism degree. This is supposed to bring supercomputers to the new level by means of enlarging the performance levels from TFLOP to EXAFLOP. Upon the whole, Xeon Phi is the name which will be used for further line of products based on Intel MIC architecture.

Xeon Phi coprocessors are sure to enable the transmission of the reduced data via PCI slots and will primarily be applied to dedicated coprocessors. The sales start is designated to the end of the current year, and the first products presented in the market will be items which belong to Knights Corner series. According to the Intel developers’ words, Xeon Phi will firstly replenish the series of central processors Intel Xeon E5-2600/4600; further on, the …

Galaxy Unveils a Shortened Version of GeForce GTX 760 Adapter

Galaxy Microsystems, a reliable partner of Nvidia, has recently unveiled its own, shortened version of GTX 760 graphics adapter. Codenamed Galaxy GeForce GTX 760 GC Mini, the card employs a reference GK104 GPU (28 nm), but is differentiated by an original PCB and a factory overclocking. The implemented circuit board features 193 mm length dimensions and is elaborated on a blue textolite.

The new-comer is furnished with 1152 CUDA cores that run at 1019 MHz but can be overclocked up to 1084 MHz. Video subsystem is introduced by GDDR5 modules with 256-bit interface. The overall capacity of modules makes up 2 GB. The GDDR5 demonstrates rather striking performance, considering the card’s middle-end destination: the modules are able to gain 6008 MHz clock frequency.

Power supply is organized according to 5+2-phase scheme, where five phases are allotted to GPU. A pair of 6-pin PCI Express Power connectors is used to provide additional power supply to the card. I/O interface …
