Penguin Computing: New Generation Of HPC Hardware

Penguin Computing unveiled a new product portfolio including new Relion series rack-mounted servers, Icebreaker series storage solutions, and Niveus series workstations based on the Intel Xeon E5-2600 processor family targeting technical and scientific users looking for higher simulation throughputs.

Penguin said the new processors offer several performance benefits over the previous CPU generation which support its high performance computing (HPC) market, including the addition of AVX instructions for improved computational throughput, support for the third generation PCI-E architecture to improve I/O bandwidth, level three cache of up to 20 MBs, support for higher memory speeds, and an additional memory controller for increased memory bandwidth.
