During ESPN’s coverage… Read More
Our CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, sketched out today a future where mobile, desktop and supercomputer technologies intersect in powerful and surprising ways. Speaking at the GPU Technology Conference, Huang described how GPUs are already finding their way into applications that were undreamed of a decade ago. NVIDIA’s Kepler GPU architecture – introduced last year — is not… Read More
Harley-Davidson is using tools from the movie and gaming industries to shave months off the design and development of its motorcycles. Matthew Gueller, a senior industrial designer for the company, told the GPU Technology Conference about how his eight-person design team is able to crank out new design concepts in hours, even minutes. The veteran… Read More
Swiss National Supercomputing Center Plans to Scale Application Performance Heights With NVIDIA GPUs
Ask any weatherman: Predicting the weather is not easy. Throw in Switzerland’s many diverse microclimates and topographical features and the challenge is even greater. The Swiss National Supercomputing Center (CSCS), one of Europe’s top institutions for computational research, plans to change that by applying a petaflop of GPU-accelerated processing power to the problem. CSCS is… Read More
Our work on everything from super computers to super phones is finally coming together. If you’re a developer, ARM is ready to support your best work.
