FPGA accelerator disrupts the datacenter

Stephen Law   


15SEP242_ES2NALLATECH 510T FPGA co-processor delivers improved performance per watt for compute-intensive datacenter applications. Device is a GPU-sized 16-lane PCIe 3.0 card featuring two of Altera’s new floating-point enabled Arria 10 FPGAs delivering up to 16 times the performance of the previous generation. Applications can achieve a total sustained performance of up to 3 TFlops. Deliverables include an optimized Board Support Package compatible with the Altera Software Development Kit (SDK) for OpenCL. This allows the card to be programmed at a high level of abstraction by customers unfamiliar with hardware-based tool flows historically required for FPGAs. Product is available with a 290GByte/sec of peak external memory bandwidth configured as eight independent banks of DDR4 plus an ultra-fast Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC).
