CAPS teams up with ASUStek to promote GPU computing

Rennes – January 17th, 2011

CAPS entreprise pursues its international deployment with a new marketing alliance with ASUStek dedicated to the promotion of its flagship product HMPP™ (Heterogeneous Multicore Parallel Programming) in Asia. The relationship will combine an HMPP trial version with technical and graphic demonstrations with each ASUS ESC1000 Personal SuperComputer distributed in Asia where there is a strong market acceptance for such hybrid technologies.
CAPS, well known for its manycore programming solutions, provides end users with a breakthrough technology enabling them to port legacy applications onto hybrid systems - computer systems mixing CPUs & GPUs - in a record time. HMPP, its directive-based compiler, offers an incremental programming model to rapidly build GPU accelerated applications.

ASUS ESC1000 Personal SuperComputer: the latest GPUs solution for Extreme Parallel Computing Capability
Extreme Super Computer ESC1000 is a powerful workstation with ultimate computing performance and multiple I/O scalability for the most demanding tasks and future upgrades. Designed for professionals in Life/Medical Sciences, Engineering & Sciences, Financial modeling and EDA & Visualization, ESC1000 has up to 4GPUs computing power and optimized thermal solution to reduce operation noise and dissipates heat through advanced and environmentally friendly methods.

This tested and validated combination of ASUS ESC1000 Personal SuperComputer and HMPP enables developers to take full advantage of hardware accelerators in their native code for a fine tuned performance optimization.

"ASUS always aims to provide more complete solution to our professional customers. By collaborating with CAPS, ESC1000, ASUS outstanding hybrid multi-core computing model, not only provides customers powerful and reliable performance but shortcuts the transforming legacy codes for utilizing the parallel computing power. HMPP dramatically decreases users’ development time.” comments Judy Lin, the manager of ASUS Workstation Product Management.

Strategic partnerships with rugged computer suppliers are essential to the success of HMPP. This partnership will empower mutual CAPS and ASUStek customers to leverage from a powerful and complete manycore programming solution.
"I'm really happy that CAPS entreprise and ASUStek are teaming up to provide to GPGPU developers and users the best of the GPU ready technology available today on the market. The quality of ASUStek products is serving efficiently the HMPP technology to facilitate GPU computing and development. The central position of ASUStek in Asia also exposes our willing to increase our presence in this area and as well on a global perspective. This is the beginning of global collaborations", comments Benoît Raoult, VP & General Manager of CAPS APAC.
