The Multiprocessor Array (MPA) Platform consists of a General-Purpose Graphics Processing Unit (GP-GPU) and a compatible host workstation/server, or multi-core processor technology featured for parallel computing such as Intel Knights Landing. The platform enables researchers to accelerate processing of algorithms and simulations, and explore topics such as multi-core software authoring, modeling, computer architecture, and novel approaches to power-efficient high-performance computing.
The first generation of the MPA includes the NVIDIA Tesla K20 GP-GPU that is powered by CUDA parallel-computing technology.
The second generation of the MPA includes two configurations: the NVIDIA Tesla K40 GP-GPU with compatible workstation and the Intel Xeon Phi 7120 coprocessor with compatible workstation.
The third generation of the MPA includes four configurations: NVIDIA Tesla K40, NVIDIA Tesla P100, Intel Phi 7120, and Intel Knights Landing, with compatible host computer.
