Supersight e2 HPC platform

Share this on social media:

Matrox Imaging has equipped the Matrox Supersight e2 high-performance computing (HPC) platform with ATI FirePro Professional Graphics from AMD.

Matrox Supersight e2 is a high-performance computing platform designed for imaging applications with extremely high throughputs.

The platform, with its high-bandwidth PCIe 2.0 switched fabric backplane, provides substantial data throughput and expansion capability for supporting up to six double-wide or up to nine single-wide GPUs in a 4U platform. In turn, each ATI FirePro Professional Graphics card provides up to 1,600 stream processors and 147.2GB/s of memory bandwidth.

The HPC platform with the graphics cards provides the architecture and computational power needed to greatly accelerate the data-parallel operations commonly employed in high-throughput machine vision and medical imaging applications. In addition, many of these GPU-optimised operations are already available through the company's Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) software development kit.
