new nvidia processors

Very few folks will have got my tweet tonight so it is worth explaining ;-)

I always have to look at new game technology, the game architectures always inform my future HPC decisions. CES had an early preview tonight. So I just had to stay up to watch this... Others also stayed up...

There are an epic amount of GPU cores (72) on the Tegra4 and these chips will soon be in your cell phone! These are the new commodity and low power processors to follow and to watch out for the HPC folks that are listening. Also - pay attention to this video streaming thing, I hear it is going to be big. And there is something called "cloud services" to allow folks to see all this from any place on the planet :-)

Here are a couple of snaps I took from the webcast, it was a lot of fun!

HDR on the fly...


And software defined modems...


This should be fun...


They called it "shield", but this is quite something to follow team beowulf!
