SAN JOSE, Calif., May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology and green computing, now offers NVIDIA® Maximus™ technology in its latest high-end, enterprise-class X9 SuperWorkstation ( 7047GR-TRF), allowing users to simultaneously design, render and simulate on the same workstation, avoiding traditional, time-consuming and costly processing downtime. Supermicro's NVIDIA Maximus certified solution integrates an NVIDIA® Quadro® series graphics processing unit (GPU) dedicated for design and visualization tasks with four NVIDIA Tesla® C2075 co-processors dedicated to handling compute-intensive tasks like simulation—an industry-first configuration of NVIDIA Maximus technology. This powerful GPU duo delivers scientists, engineers and designers the specialized compute capacity to interact with 3D models in CAD/CAM applications, while simultaneously rendering or outputting complex CAE simulations. This ability to multitask with both compute and graphics-heavy applications together, in real time, on a single workstation dramatically accelerates productivity and allows more opportunities for creative exploration.
"Supermicro's NVIDIA Maximus certified 7047GR-TRF SuperWorkstation opens the door to personal supercomputing for scientific, engineering and entertainment fields, and closes the gap between design and realization," said Wally Liaw, Vice President of Sales, International at Supermicro. "Our solution allows users to free themselves from compute limitations and to challenge their creativity with an unprecedented four Tesla GPUs plus one Quadro GPU in a 4U Tower, more than any other system in this class on the market. With this incredible performance at the desktop, designers can spend more time interacting with complex models and sophisticated simulations and less time waiting, allowing them to deliver results faster to market."
"Supermicro's professional-level SuperWorkstations harness the power of NVIDIA Maximus technology to sharply improve productivity," said
Jeff Brown, general manager of the Professional Solutions Group at NVIDIA. "Supermicro is outstanding at integrating NVIDIA GPU technology into their workstations, and the 7047GR-TRF marks only the start of their efforts to incorporate NVIDIA Maximus's power and flexibility."
