TI Keystone II ARM+DSP Server for Worlds Most Power Efficient Super Computers

Posted by Charbax – September 24, 2014

Gil Pitney demonstrates how Texas Instruments' Keystone II ARM+DSP multicore SoCs are ideal for "green supercomputing", performing demanding High Performance Computing (HPC) workloads at lower power. TI's Mulicore SDK for HPC (MCSDK-HPC) examples show how TI's OpenCL driver and the OpenMP 4.0 Accelerator Model allow demanding scientific computations to be easily offloaded and distributed to the 8 DSP cores.
