Among the plans of Supercomputing center is to use two to five times energy efficient systems in comparison to the more efficient systems used today. BSC is showing the system publicly at SC11 Conference running from Nov. 14-17 in Seattle, Wash., in exhibit booth #235. Jen-Hsun Huang, Nvidia’s president and CEO, will speak at the show on November 15 and the system will be a part of the keynote address. Continue reading
