NVIDIA unveils Tesla K40 accelerator, teams with IBM on GPU-based supercomputing

NVIDIA unveils Tesla K40, teams with IBM on supercomputing in the data center

NVIDIA’s Tesla GPUs are already mainstays in supercomputers that need specialized processing power, and they’re becoming even more important now that the company is launching its first Tesla built for large-scale projects. The new K40 accelerator only has 192 more processing cores than its K20x ancestor (2,880, like the GeForce GTX 780 Ti), but it crunches analytics and science numbers up to 40 percent faster. A jump to 12GB of RAM, meanwhile, helps it handle data sets that are twice as big as before. The K40 is already available in servers from NVIDIA’s partners, and the University of Texas at Austin plans to use it in Maverick, a remote visualization supercomputer that should be up and running by January.

As part of the K40 rollout, NVIDIA has also revealed a partnership with IBM that should bring GPU-boosted supercomputing to enterprise-grade data centers. The two plan on bringing Tesla GPU support to IBM’s Power8-based servers, including both apps and development tools. It’s not clear when the deal will bear fruit, but don’t be surprised if it turbocharges a corporate mainframe near you.

MobileBench group aims to improve mobile benchmarking, recruits Samsung but lacks Qualcomm, NVIDIA

Industry group established to simplify and improve mobile device benchmarking, both Qualcomm and NVIDIA absent
It’s called MobileBench: an industry consortium planning to offer “more effective” performance assessments on mobile devices — most likely centered on, but not limited to, Android. Unsurprisingly after recent developments, Samsung joins as a founding member, alongside Broadcom, Huawei, Oppo, and Spreadtrum. While that’s who’s in, who isn’t? Well, both NVIDIA (responsible for the Tegra series of mobile chips) and the increasingly ubiquitous Qualcomm, which makes the Snapdragon mobile processor range. Between them, they power the likes of Microsoft’s Surface series, Amazon’s new Kindle Fire range, not to mention numerous flagship devices from LG, Samsung, Sony and Motorola.

The group gathered for the first time yesterday in Shenzhen, China and outlined how it aims to offer more useful tools for mobile platform designers and “more reliable indices” for assessing user experience. MobileBench plans to establish impartial guidelines and a more sophisticated evaluation methodology for both its first benchmark tool, MobileBench and MobileBench-UX, for testing system-level applications. The benchmarking tool will assess hardware performance, including high-level processes like video and image viewing, camera use and other real-life use cases, with one of the primary aims being result consistency and less deviation between repeated tests. Another app is planned for consumer use in the future, likely similar to the benchmarking apps Engadget uses in its reviews. The bigger question is how much the consortium can achieve without wider adoption inside the industry — it’s apparently “actively seeking” more members.

NVIDIA Tegra TAB coming with Tegra 4 chip, 7-inch display, stylus

NVIDIA's P1640 'Tegra Tab' reveals all specs, manual at FCC

Thanks to another revealing pass through the FCC, we now know more about NVIDIA’s upcoming P1640 mystery tablet, starting with a likely name: the Tegra TAB. An internal photo shows that it’ll likely have a Tegra 4 variant we’ve not seen before, a rather middling 7-inch, 1,280 x 800 IPS display and a 3200 mAh battery. There’s also a manual included that shows an unspecified Jelly Bean flavor of Android, a front HD camera, 5-megapixel rear camera and, interestingly, a stylus — along with apps for it. There’s no other details, and we’re still not sure if NVIDIA will be selling the device itself or through OEMs. Either way, it’s clearly more than just a developer device as previously speculated, so we wouldn’t be shocked to see it on the market imminently.
