Hardware manufacturer NEC has today unveiled a new addition to their high-end HPC product line in the form of the new SX-Aurora TSUBASA Vector Engine, designed to provide increased processing “performance and scalability on real-world applications”, such as Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data analytics.
The SX-Aurora TSUBASA Vector Engine is not only binary compatible and features the same hardware architecture and software environment allowing developers to run the same application on a variety of different systems without making any internal changes to their coding.
Kimihiko Fukuda, Executive Vice President, NEC Corporation explains:
The new product addresses the needs of scalar computational capability while still providing the efficiency of a vector architecture. This is accomplished through a tightly integrated complete vector system in the form of a Vector Engine Card.
We provide a comprehensive range of products to address widely diversified needs, from a deskside tower for the individual scientist, to a high-end system for large computer centers. Compared to NEC’s previous generation platform, the SX-Aurora TSUBASA is highly power efficient and compact, providing five times the performance per Watt, and ten times the performance per square meter of floor space.
