Silicon Graphics (OTC: SGID) today unveiled a groundbreaking solution that packs the power of dozens of supercomputer nodes into a single blade by leveraging the inherent parallelism of the industry’s most powerful Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology. The new SGI(R) RASC(TM) RC100 computation blade, built with dual Xilinx Virtex(TM) 4 FPGAs, can accelerate the performance of many HPC applications by orders of magnitude over conventional systems at a far lower
cost and much smaller footprint.
