Hybrid Computing

At Biotechnica 2010 in Hanover, FluiDyna presented their Personal Supercomputing System Typhoon, including eight NVIDIA Tesla C2050 processors resulting in 3584 GPU cores to the scientific audience in life sciences. The use of a GPU (graphics processing unit) together with a CPU to perform scientific and engineering computing in a heterogeneous computing model, uses a high number of cores for highly parallelizable processes. In life sciences such an architecture can speed up complex imaging processes, simulations and phylogenetic tree reconstructions manifold in a “personal supercomputer”, not bigger than a PC.
