NVIDIA debuts the NVIDIA Tesla K10 GPU accelerator based on its high-performance Kepler computing architecture, designed to address two high-performance computing (HPC) markets: seismic data processing in oil and gas exploration, and signal and image processing in the defence industry.

The Kepler architecture enables two high-performance Tesla K10 GPUs to be placed on a single accelerator board. Delivering an aggregate performance of 4.58teraflops of single-precision floating point and 320GB per second memory bandwidth, the Tesla K10 claims to be the world's highest throughput GPU accelerator.

Seismic processing uses large data centres to crunch through petabytes of information about the Earth's subsurface area, generated from reflected seismic waves. Geophysicists analyse the resulting 2D and 3D images to discover oil and gas deposits, and to determine the best and safest locations to drill.

NVIDIA GPUs improve the accuracy of seismic processing by enabling the use of more detailed, computationally intensive seismic processing software algorithms such as reverse time migration, full waveform inversion and Kirchoff time / depth migration.

The NVIDIA Tesla K10 GPU can help agencies increase national security by improving the quality, and speeding the delivery of, actionable video analytics and image forensics to security and law-enforcement officials. GPUs speed up by as much as 100x the process of analysing thousands of video feeds generated by security cameras and drones, enabling analysts to better identify events and individuals of interest.

The NVIDIA Tesla K10 GPU Computing Accelerator is available beginning this month from leading OEMs, including Appro Supercomputer Solutions, Dell, HP, IBM, SGI and Supermicro, as well as through NVIDIA distribution partners. More information about the Tesla K10 is available on the NVIDIA Tesla website.
