Cluster capability at fration of cost, vendor claims

Nvidia has announced a computer that has the power of a cluster of computers at a fraction of the cost.

Working with several partners, Nvidia has developed the Tesla Personal Supercomputer, which is powered by a graphics processing unit based on Nvidia's Cuda parallel computing architecture. Computers using the Tesla C1060 GPU processor will have 250 times the processing power of a typical PC workstation, enabling researchers to run complicated simulations, experiments and number crunching without sharing a supercomputing cluster, according to Nvidia.

A grid of computers can cost 100 times the cost of one of the Tesla-powered workstations, Nvidia said.

Among the computer makers offering Tesla Personal Supercomputers are Dell, Lenovo and Asus.
