NextComputing (Nashua, NH) has announced support for the NVIDIA® Tesla™
C-class GPU computing processors in its NextStream dense streaming blade
server, including the recently announced Tesla C2075. At a diminutive 2 rack
units (2U) high, the NextStream is optimized for high-performance computing
tasks that require a mix of traditional multi-core CPU processing with GPU
co-processing in a dense form-factor. The NextStream 2U chassis can house up
to three independent dual-processor blades, each with dual Intel® Xeon®
5500 series processors (up to 6 cores per CPU) and 96GB memory, for a total
of 36 processing cores and 288GB of memory per chassis. Each blade has its
own PCI Express 2.0 x8 expansion slot and internal Gigabit networking between
blades. In a GPU-optimized setup, the NextStream can be configured with two
blades, each with dual 6-core Intel Xeon processors, 96GB RAM, and a
dedicated NVIDIA Tesla GPU computing processor on a full PCI Express 2.0 x16
