GE Intelligent Platforms introduced their rugged IPN251 6U OpenVPX GPGPU Multiprocessor. The GE IPN251 is a second generation 6U OpenVPX multiprocessor module. The board combines the latest NVIDIA 384-core Kepler GPU with the 3rd Generation Intel Core i7 CPU. It fits in a single VPX slot. The IPN251 module is ideal for defense prime contractors and systems integrators.
The IPN251 is designed to fit into GE’s HPEC solution set, which includes the SBC625 3rd Generation Intel Core i7 single board computer, the GBX460 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch, the DSP280 dual quad-core multiprocessor, a wide range of I/O, AXIS Multiprocessing Software, development chassis, and rugged deployable chassis.
The GE IPN251 offers substantially improved performance not only because of the more powerful NVIDIA technology it incorporates, but also through its support of GPUDirect, which delivers superior data transfer times with the lowest latency and maximum throughput.
On-board and backplane communication is maximized by the use of PCI Express Gen 3 components, including the dual-channel Mellanox ConnectX-3 10 Gigabit Ethernet/InfiniBand network interface card. The third generation Intel Core i7 CPU and the GPU are connected via a 16-lane PCI Express Gen 3 switch.
