Post Nvidia Wins $12 Million FastForward R&D Contract

Nvidia's Bill Dally writes that his company has joined the ranks of FastForward winners for Exascale R&D dollars.
The two-year contract calls for NVIDIA to conduct research and development in processor architecture, circuits, memory architecture, high-speed signaling and programming models to enable an exascale computer at a reasonable power level. The concept is to use thousands of efficient, throughput-optimized cores to perform the bulk of the work, with a handful of latency-optimized cores to perform the residual serial computation. We'll work with scientists at seven DOE laboratories to ensure our design meets their needs and runs their scientific workloads.

This award comes in the wake of Nvidia's work on Project Echelon, which we profiled in this slidecast last year. Read the Full Story.
