NVIDIA Selects CSIRO as Member of International Network

Today, NVIDIA, one of the globe's major developers of graphics processing units (GPUs) declared that CSIRO has been chosen as a member of its worldwide network of high performance computing research centers.

GPUs are the computer hardware that rests at the center of game consoles and, growingly, supercomputers.

CSIRO's Group Executive Information Sciences, Dr. Alex Zelinsky, said that the declaration at the International Supercomputing Conference in Hamburg, Germany, advances CSIRO's aim of being a global head in the application of GPU technology to a wide range of scientific and manufacturing troubles.

Dr. Zelinsky said that to be engaged in NVIDIA's CUDA Research Center Program that is devised for institutes, which hug GPU computing across multiple research spheres, is a huge honor for CSIRO.

He said, "We're excited to be in such good company. CUDA Research Centers include Johns Hopkins University (US) and Nanyang Technological University (Singapore)".

At present, CSIRO is the only CUDA Research Center in the southern hemisphere.

CSIRO's GPU set, with 256 GPUs, was the one of its type in Australia and is one of the globe's quickest computers.

GPUs accelerate data processing by letting a computer do extraordinary multi-tasking through parallel processing.
