NVIDIA designed the ultimate GPU accelerator with the highest performance, which will be used by a wide range of engineering, scientific, high performance computing and enterprise applications.
The Tesla K40 GPU delivers up to 40 percent higher performance, and double the memory than the previous the Tesla K20X GPU accelerator. It also provides 10 times higher performance than the fastest CPU out there.
This super GPU accelerator has been designed specifically for large-scale scientific workloads and big data analytics. The Tesla K40 GPU features an intelligent NVIDIA GPU Boost technology and enables users to unlock the untapped performance of wide range of applications.
"GPU accelerators have gone mainstream in the HPC and supercomputing industries, enabling engineers and researchers to consistently drive innovation and scientific discovery," said general manager of Tesla Accelerated Computing products at NVIDIA, Sumit Gupta. "With the breakthrough performance and higher memory capacity of the Tesla K40 GPU, enterprise customers can quickly crunch through massive volumes of data generated by their big data analytics applications."
The most powerful performance for Science
The Tesla K40 GPU is based on the NVIDIA Kepler compute architecture, which is the most efficient architecture ever built. This beast surpasses others in the competition on two common measures of computational performance – 4.29 teraflops single-precision and 1.43 teraflops double-precision peak floating point performance.
Tesla K40 GPU’s main features include:
- 2,880 CUDA® parallel processing cores deliver application acceleration by up to 10X compared to using a CPU alone.
- 12GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 memory allows users to process 2X larger datasets, enabling them to rapidly analyze massive volumes of data.
- Dynamic Parallelism enables GPU threads to dynamically spawn new threads, enabling users 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.
One of the leading advanced computing centers in the United States, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) plans to deploy ‘Maverick’, which is a new interactive, remote visualization and data analysis system powered by Tesla K40 GPU accelerators.
