IBM recently announced a new addition to their BladeCenter family – the IBM BladeCenter GPU Expansion blade. This new offering provides a single HS22 with the capability of hosting up to 4 x NVIDIA Tesla M2070 or Tesla M2070Q GPUs each running 448 processing cores each. Doing the math, this equals the possibility of having 4,928 processing cores in a single 9u IBM BladeCenter H chassis. That means you could have 19,712 processing cores PER RACK. With such astonishing numbers, let’s take a deeper look at the IBM BladeCenter GPU Expansion blade.
