SGI Prism XL
SGI Prism XL is designed for accelerator-based high performance computing, enabling users to scale to tens of petaflops or large teraflop range. A 20 petaflop double precision deployment can be achieved in as few as 100 cabinets. Its open and scalable platform is built on SGI’s STIX architecture, and it supports accelerator cards from NVIDIA, AMD and Tilera, and up to a 300W PCIe card. It uses a ‘stick’ as the integral unit, with each stick containing two ‘slices’ of a full-length, full-height PCIe gen 2 x 16 slot and a single-socket AMD 4100-powered motherboard.
