A week from today, a free webcast sponsored by Scientific Computing and Dell Inc. will explore the use of GPU technologies in advanced computing contexts.

The announcement states:

The dramatic increase in more standardized capability, coupled with the delivery of exceptional performance envelopes, all within a lower cost band, positions GPU technologies at the forefront of the next wave of broad architecture adoption. GPU technologies have made tremendous advancements in overall capability, programming and toolkits, providing a much more compelling performance architecture model for complex and computationally intense environments – where performance and speed of delivery are the make or break points to competitive advantage or evolutionary breakthroughs and innovation.

Join Scientific Computing and a diverse panel of experts to discuss the many benefits of GPU technologies as performance accelerators for computationally intensive and high performance workloads and environments.

The free webcast, moderated by Scientific Computing’s Editor-in-Chief, Suzanne Tracy. Experts will include John Towns (director of the Persistent Infrastructure Directorate, National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois), Michael Wolfe (compiler engineer with The Portland Group), and Mark Fernandez (HPC Computer Scientist in the Advanced Systems Group at Dell).

The webcast will take place between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time 20 October 2010. Click here to register.
