GE has introduced three new rugged computing products featuring integrated GPGPU technology using NVIDIA CUDA-capable GPUs. ┬*The first is the IPN250 Rugged 6U OpenVPX Single Board Computer (SBC) (http://www.ge-ip.com/news-events/detail/2724). ┬*The second is the 6U OpenVPX NPN240 multi-processor (http://www.ge-ip.com/news-events/detail/2734).┬*The NPN240 features two NVIDIA┬« CUDA-capable GT240 96-core GPUs, enabling it to deliver up to 750 GFLOP/S peak per card slot (depending on the application). Multiple NPN240s can be linked to one or more hosts to create multi-node CUDA GPU clusters capable of thousands of GFLOP/S. ┬*The third is the OpenVPX-compatible GRA111 high performance graphics board (http://www.ge-ip.com/news-events/detail/2678), which is the first rugged implementation of a CUDA-capable GPU.
