NVIDIA has announced that for the first time, Dell’s PowerEdge line of servers will have onboard NVIDIA GPUs on them. Two 12th generation PowerEdge servers will feature NVIDIA Tesla GPUs. The new servers are designed to support a wide range of resource heavy applications, including Mathworks MATLAB and SIMULAI Abaqus.Virginia Swink, executive director of Dell Server Solutions says:
“Integrating accelerator technologies in Dell’s PowerEdge portfolio opens up new usage models, and extends our ability to deliver more cycles to a broader base of scientific and commercial users.”
Dell’s PowerEdge R720 sports a full x86 environment and up to two Tesla GPUs. This is the standard horizontal, rack-mounted server most are accustomed to seeing. It’s small, compact, and packs a great deal of computational power. The T620 will feature up to four Tesla or Quadro cards, packing even more power than the R720. These servers are now available from Dell and its partners.
