AMAX to Support New NVIDIA Tesla K80 Dual-GPU Accelerators in ClusterMax(TM) Cluster and ServMax(TM) Server Platforms

FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Nov 17, 2014 -- SC14 -- AMAX, a leading innovator of High Performance Computing (HPC), Dynamic Enterprise IT, and Custom Appliance Manufacturing Solutions, today announced during the annual Supercomputing (SC14) show in New Orleans, LA, that it will offer the new NVIDIA® Tesla® K80 family of GPU accelerators in its ClusterMax™ GPU cluster and ServMax™ GPU server platforms. Featuring two high-performance GPU processors in a single board, the Tesla K80 dual-GPU accelerator delivers 10 times higher performance than today's fastest CPU, outperforming CPUs and competing accelerators on hundreds of complex analytics and large, computationally intensive scientific computing applications.

The ClusterMax™ and ServMax™ platform solutions featuring the new NVIDIA Tesla K80 dual-GPU accelerators are ideal for universities, national research labs, government, and enterprise high-performance computing environments where massive computational power is required. To meet these demands, AMAX offers up the ClusterMax™ SuperG, a complete turnkey GPU-enabled cluster that has been pre-configured, ready to deploy on-site and configurable with up to 108 NVIDIA Tesla K80 dual-GPU accelerators in a standard 42U cabinet, delivering over 604+ Teraflops of peak single precision performance and 201+ Teraflops of peak double precision performance per standard 42U cabinet.

"With NVIDIA's high-performance, energy-efficient Tesla K80 dual-GPU accelerators and AMAX's dynamic cluster and server solution designs, we are able to deliver breakthrough performance and compute efficiency for double-precision focused applications," said Julia Shih, Director of Strategic Alliances at AMAX. "With multi-GPU Hyper-Q, system monitoring, memory protection, NVIDIA GPUDirect with RDMA technologies embedded in the NVIDIA GPU compute architecture, the performance increases we've seen in data analytics, satellite imaging, and weather modeling applications have simply been astounding."

The latest AMAX solutions designed for the Tesla K80 accelerators include:

ClusterMax™ SuperG GPU Cluster:

Preconfigured AMAX ClusterMax™ SimCluster:

ServMax ™ XG-2401Gk8 GPU Server:

ServMax ™ XG-4802Gk8 GPU Server:

"The Tesla K80 dual-GPU accelerator is the world's highest performance accelerator designed for a wide range of machine learning, data analytics, scientific, and HPC applications," said Sumit Gupta, general manager of Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. "The new accelerators enable premier partners like AMAX to provide cluster and server solutions with previously unattainable levels of computing power."

AMAX is showcasing a live demo of a Tesla K80 accelerator-enabled system for Supercomputing 2014 (booth # 3448), held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA. AMAX's GPU solutions optimized for the new NVIDIA Tesla K80 GPU accelerators, including cluster and server solutions, are available immediately. A FREE GPU Test Drive cluster will be available for qualified applicants to remotely access an AMAX engineered, in-house Tesla K80 accelerator cluster.
