NVIDIA Tesla K40 Accelerator
The new NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU accelerator delivers extreme performance to a widening range of scientific, engineering, high performance computing (HPC) and enterprise applications. Providing double the memory and up to 40 percent higher performance than its predecessor and 10 times higher performance than today’s fastest CPU, the new accelerator is the world’s first and highest-performance accelerator optimized for big data analytics and large-scale scientific workloads. Featuring intelligent NVIDIA GPU Boost technology, the new GPU accelerator enables users to unlock the untapped performance of a broad range of applications. Based on the NVIDIA Kepler compute architecture, the new accelerator offers exceptional results in two common measures of computational performance: 4.29 teraflops single-precision and 1.43 teraflops double-precision peak floating point performance. Key features of the Tesla K40 GPU accelerator include: 12GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 memory allows users to process 2X larger datasets, enabling them to rapidly analyze massive volumes of data; 2,880 CUDA parallel processing cores deliver application acceleration by up to 10X compared to using a CPU alone; Dynamic Parallelism enables GPU threads to dynamically spawn new threads, enabling users the ability to quickly and easily crunch through adaptive and dynamic data structures; PCIe Gen-3 interconnect support accelerates data movement by 2X compared to PCIe Gen-2 technology.
