The world’s first personal supercomputer has been unveiled . The name of the supercomputer is Tesla.The Tesla Personal Supercomputer is a desktop computer that is backed by Nvidia and built by Dell, Lenovo and other companies .
Jen-Hsun Huang, President and CEO, nVIDIA, said that the supercomputer would transform the personal workstations as it would enhance the efficiency of a personal computer by 250 times.
“Pretty much anything that you do on your PC that takes a lot of time can be accelerated with this. These supercomputers can improve the time it takes to process info by 1,000 times,….If you imagine it takes a week to get a result (from running an experiment), you can only do it 52 times a year. If it takes you minutes, you can do it constantly, and learn just as much in a day” : David Kirk, the chief scientist at NVIDIA.
“Before mobile phones were reserved for the few, now we can’t live without them. It will be the same with these supercomputers. They are the building block for the computing of the future.“: Eric Greffier, a Dell senior executive
The supercomputer that looks more or less like an ordinary PC has been priced between 4,000 pounds and 8,000 pounds.The Tesla built on compute unified device architecture (CUDA) would not replace the CPU (central processing unit) of a personal computer, but it would complement the work of the CPU with the help of GPU numerous times.
