08 Dec 2008Maxeler CEO to speak at Stanford CEES

Novel acceleration technology is delivering a discontinuous jump of over one order of magnitude in compute capability to the earth sciences community. For example, Chevron announced a Maxeler system at the recent SEG meeting offering over 200x speedup compared to a single state-of-the-art Intel Xeon CPU core. In particular, acceleration increases with problem size, suggesting [...]

09 May 2008Maxeler Chairman to speak at ISPDC 2008

The emphasis on multi core architectures and multi node parallel processors comes about, in part, from the failure of frequency scaling not because of breakthroughs in parallel programming or architecture. Progress in automatic compilation of serial programs into multi tasked ones has been slow. The standard approach to programming HPC is to implement an application [...]
