Sony to Showcase Prototype High-Speed Cell Computing Board at SIGGRAPH 2007

Sony will exhibit its newly developed “Cell Computing Board” prototype at SIGGRAPH 2007, to be held Aug. 7 – 9 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif.

The “Cell Computing Board” incorporates the high-performance Cell Broadband Engine™ (Cell/B.E.) microprocessor and RSX graphics processor. This results in high computational performance capable of handling large amounts of data at high speed while also achieving reductions in size and energy consumption.

This technology represents a new solution for multimedia computing applications such as computer graphics and scientific computations that require massive data quantities to be processed.

About Cell Computing Board

High-Speed
The incorporation of RSX realizes arithmetic operation speeds beyond the 230 GFLOPS of the Cell/B.E. microprocessor alone.

Miniaturization
“Cell Computing Board” can be embedded in a 1U (unit) sized server and mounted on a 19-inch rack.
