What is Accelerated Computing?

Accelerated computing is a modern style of computing that separates the data-intensive parts of an application and processes them on a separate acceleration device, leaving the control functionality to be processed on the CPU. This allows demanding applications to run more quickly and efficiently as the underlying processor hardware is more efficient for the type of processing needed. Having separate types of hardware processors, including accelerators, is known as heterogeneous computing because there are multiple types of compute resources available for the application to utilize.

Typically, hardware accelerators have a parallel processing structure that allows them to perform tasks simultaneously, instead of in a linear or serial fashion. As such, they’re able to optimize the intensive data-plane processing portions of applications while the CPU continues to run control-plane code that cannot be run in parallel. The result is efficient, high-performance computing.

Highest Performance
  • Up to 90X higher performance than CPUs on key workloads at one-third the cost

  • Over 4X higher inference throughput and 3X latency advantage over GPU-based solutions

Accelerate Any Workload
  • Machine learning inference to video processing to any workload using the same accelerator card

  • As workload algorithms evolve, use reconfigurable hardware to adapt faster than fixed-function accelerator card product cycles

Cloud to On-Premises Mobility
  • Deploy solutions in the cloud or on-premises interchangeably, scalable to application requirements

  • Applications available for common workloads, or build your own with the Application Developer Tool
